A music video shoot in Huntsville, Alabama featuring Boosie BadAzz would have ended yesterday with gunfire.
The Huntsville Police Department is investigating the shooting that took place on Saturday, May 29. The incident took place around 4:30 p.m. on Binford Drive during a shoot of the Boosie BadAzz music video in which 50 to 100 people participated, reports CBS News19. HPD captain Michael Johnson told the outlet that a man in his 20s was shot in the shooting and taken to a local Huntsville hospital where he was initially listed in critical condition. The man later died of his injuries.
Huntsville local media outlet WAFF48 reports that the shooting may have been preceded by an argument that erupted, which then escalated into gunfire.
Video allegedly from the incident shows a man appearing to be Boosie in a large crowd of people, some of whom are holding large guns. They rap in unison as a song plays in the background until several knocks ring out and everyone rushes to cover. The clip ends shortly after.
Boosie seems to have escaped unscathed. He mentioned the shooting on social media, denying that the bullets were intended for him. “AINT NO ONE IS TRYING TO KILL ME IN HUNTSVILLE AL,” he tweeted Sunday, May 30. “YALL MFS BE HAPPY TO SPREAD LIES ABOUT ME #LOL”
XXL contacted the Huntsville Police Department for comment.
This is the second time in a year that Boosie has been in close proximity to gunfire. In the previous incident, he was shot. Last November, Boosie was shot in the leg in Dallas, Texas in town to attend a candlelight vigil recently murdered Dallas rapper Mo3, who was shot and killed on November 11, 2020.
Boosie’s shooting allegedly took place at a mall called Big T’s Plaza. He was treated at a local hospital but refused to cooperate with the police investigation. While recovering from his leg injury, Boosie performed in a wheelchair.
