Kodak Black has spoken out on the Tallahassee shooting that ended with his security’s guard leg injury. Recently, the rapper hopped on Instagram Live and addressed the gunfire of which he was reportedly the intended target.

“A bitch ain’t even gone play with me,” he said. “When I saw the [news reports], I was like, ‘What the fuck?’ This ain’t no shit like — Y’all trying to make it like, one of these little industry bitches. That shit was just some little bullshit on some lame little shit that transpired on some lame shit, homie. If you a real stepper out here, you gone know, I’m in this life. Baby blue shit. That’s Yak right there.”

As previously reported by REVOLT, Kodak’s security guard was in front of the McDonald’s near the Tally Strip in Tallahassee early Monday morning (April 5). Occupants of a vehicle reportedly started following Yak and his entourage when he departed from his hosting gig at the Baja Beach Club. They initially tried to cut them off, but when that failed, they continued on their pursuit, eventually catching up when Kodak stopped at the McDonald’s to pick up his order. While the emcee was inside of the store, the shooters rang fire, hitting the guard in the femora artery in his leg. He reportedly underwent surgery for his gunshot wound.

In an effort to shut down some of the rumors regarding the reason behind the shooting, Kodak ensured fans that it was unrelated to any rap beef. “Leave me alone, man,” he said. “I ain’t fucking with nobody. Yak been zoolin’.”

Raphael Vazquez, the owner operator of the McDonald’s, has since issued a statement informing fans that the shooting happened in front of the store, not on the actual property. He added that the restaurant is cooperating with the Tallahassee Police Department as they investigate the incident.
