Updating his Instagram Story shortly after the incident, the Detroit rapper said, “Appreciate the concerns though I did not get SHOT!!!!!!!” Information about the incident was scarce for a few hours directly following the initial reports, worrying fans of both artists who recalled all-too-similar situations that have happened recently in the rap world.
As for Roddy, the rapper hasn’t updated his own pages but DJ A-Tron said that the rapper is A-OK. “My n***a Roddy good, all the homies good,” he tweeted.
