Yet another shooting has taken place that affects the rap community. According to 11Alive, rapper Kenny Muney — who’s signed to Young Dolph’s Paper Route Empire imprint — was shot at Atlantic Station in Atlanta, Georgia on Monday (May 17). Sergeant Jarius Daugherty said officers were called to 1371 Market Street just before 4 p.m. local time to a report of shots fired.
Once officers arrived at the scene, they discovered Muney who told them he was shot in the elbow and hip. The Memphis native explained he was at the intersection when someone in a vehicle started shooting at him. Muney was taken to a nearby hospital where he was “alert, conscious and breathing.”
The police reports says officers found “nine defects from being struck by bullets” in Muney’s grey Mercedes-Benz. It also states during the shooting, Muney drove his car into the side of another vehicle, causing damages to it. Officers discovered 22 shell casings at the scene along with a Glock 19 in Muney’s vehicle, which was promptly taken by police.
A witness at the scene described the incident as “bit scary, I mean you know bullets flying.” The witness added, “I don’t know exactly what happened, but I honestly believe from what I saw it was kind of like a cut-off or some kind of an incident, maybe he tapped them or something, and it was just over a car dispute.”
So far, no suspects have been identified.
Kenny Muney has been shot multiple times. Two months after dropping his 2018’s Mud 2 Muney 2 tape, Kenny he suffered minor gunshot wounds and continued performing on crutches, only to survive another shooting at a show a week later.
The shooting follows another incident in Chicago involving Lil Reese, who was shot in the eye area along with two other men on Sunday morning (May 16). He’s expected to make a full recovery.
