YG has broken his silence since being shot this month in a Los Angeles recording studio.
The Compton MC tells Billboard that he wasn't actually shot three times -- he claims that the bullet “went in, went out and went back in again." And though he has no idea who did it, he's absolutely certain it wasn’t a rival gang member. YG boasts “I’m a hard guy to kill,” while brushing the whole thing off as “a little incident... I got shot in my hip, but I’m all right.”
But YG realizes he was fortunate. “I got lucky because a main artery is right there, right around the groin. The bullet didn’t go that deep and it didn’t hit any bones.” He did go to the hospital, but he says the next night he went right back to the studio to resume work on his second album, Still Krazy.
Bobby Shmurda is facing new felony charges as he awaits his trial in New York City for alleged weapons and drug possession.
Shmurda, whose real name is Ackquille Pollard, reportedly was observed being passed a jailhouse shiv last week as he awaited his upcoming hearing -- which was supposed to begin today (Thursday) but has now been pushed back to October. Shmurda’s scheduled to appear in a Bronx, New York criminal court tomorrow on the shank charge.
Shmurda’s attorney, Kenneth Montgomery, announced this afternoon that his client had been offered a plea deal of eight years in prison with five years probation if he copped to criminal possession of a weapon, though he appears unlikely to take that deal at this time.

Bobby Shmurda's legal team pleaded with a judge yesterday (Thursday) to get his $2 million bail lowered, but the court had no sympathy for the GS9 leader.
Although Bobby got a gun charge dropped earlier this week, a New York judge balked at the idea of leniency. He denied a motion by Shmurda's lawyer, Ken Montgomery, who argued that the previous judge in the case had abused his authority by setting bail so high.
Shmurda's mother and aunt scoffed at the decision. His moms, Leslie Pollard, said, "There's no reason not to give him bail, based on the allegations, not based on the fact that he's Bobby Shmurda." And his aunt, Cherie Williams, added, "This is court. You'd think someone had a conscience." (Bossip)
