Rapper known as Gravy from Brooklyn was shot yesterday just outside the radio station Hot 97 in New York, just before a scheduled interview.
Born Jamal Wollard, 28, was injured after having a single bullet enter his buttocks after showing up around 9:30 last night.
According to police sources, the incident was executed by a group of men who exited a black colored Escalade and opened fire on the rapper.
People nearby were alarmed and screamed with the sound of gunfire as the rapper continued to enter the radio station. His entourage consisted of about 30 people.
Many calls to 911 led to the NYPD searching the surrounding area for a victim, where they found the rapper limping inside the building. Sources said that Gravy told to police he had passed out after being asked what had happened.
After police found blood stains on the rapper, he was then taken to St. Vincent's Hospital where he was reportedly in stable condition.
Currently signed to Warner Bros Records, Gravy is in the process of realeasing his debut album “God Willing.” He has been known in Brooklyn for creating a street buz with the help of mixtapes and DJs like Whoo Kid, Big Mike and Kay Slay.
