Fivio Foreign fans across social media went into a frenzy on Saturday (Aug. 8) evening after rumors started swirling that the Brooklyn, New York rapper was shot — and even killed — outside of the Elleven45 lounge in Atlanta, Georgia earlier in the day.
There was so much back and forth about the alleged incident, which caused many people to worry about Foreign’s condition. Even those in the ATL believed the hype. A Twitter user by the name of @benjifrmthewest said, “My sister in ATL tellin’ me she can’t get to her crib bc somebody shot Fivio Foreign down the street from where she live & the streets blocked off.” Thankfully, the rumors were proven to be just that after a number of music industry figures took to Twitter and Instagram to calm everyone down and reveal that the rising star is actually just fine.
“I just got word that Fivio is OK,” producer Kenny Beats tweeted. Hip hop journalist Rob Markman also said, “Just got word that Fivio is good. Not sure what exactly happened, but hearing that he is good.”
Other confirmations about the rapper’s solid state came from A-Tron, who said, “Fivio Good,” songwriter Derrick Milano, who added, “My dawg Fivio Good” and more. Even fellow New York rapper Rah Swish posted on IG, “Fivio not shot or injured or was shot at. Had nothing to do with that situation.” Needless to say, these announcements did the job of letting everyone breathe easier knowing that Foreign was fine.
However, it looks like the rapper wanted to confirm things himself to his worried fans. So, he posted a couple IG Stories showing that he was eating good and living his best life at a restaurant. You can check those clips out below.
