Benny the Butcher was shot in the leg outside a Walmart in Houston, reports TMZ.
According to the police, the New York rapper was in town Saturday and visiting a local Walmart with a few friends. While they were in their car in the parking lot, a car with 5 guys inside pulled up next to them and whipped out guns, demanding chains from Benny and the rest.
When they thought Benny and his pals were moving too slow, one of the five fired a round into Benny’s leg, which caused the crooks to flee. They called the police and the Griselda rapper was taken to a hospital to get treated. His exact condition is unknown at this point but we hope he is recovering well.
We will update this story as more information becomes available.
