Music festivals and concerts are becoming increasingly hazardous. In March, a stampede at GloRilla’s concert in Rochester, New York, resulted in two fatalities and several injuries. On September 4, spectators forced their way into Electric Zoo 2023 by storming the gates. Lil Baby’s It’s Only Us Tour stop in Memphis, Tennessee, was abruptly halted on September 7 when gunshots were heard inside the FedEx Forum arena.
Thankfully, no one was killed in the incident. However, ABC News reported that one person was critically injured from a gunshot wound. Lil Baby, known for his reticence, issued a statement on his official X (formerly Twitter) profile on September 8. He expressed regret for not being able to perform in Memphis and assured everyone that they would receive a refund.
A recently surfaced video clip shows Lil Baby on stage with his 4PF (4 Pockets Full) signee Rylo Rodriguez when a gunshot was heard. Lil Baby’s security team immediately escorted him off the stage.
Local authorities are investigating the incident and have yet to identify the shooter. According to HipHopDX, the shooting victim has been identified as CEO Jizzle, the cousin of the late rapper Young Dolph.
