Yella Beezy Watches His 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards Performance of “That’s on Me” From Hospital Bed
Yella Beezy is recovering in a Texas hospital after being shot over the weekend, but that didn't stop him from seeing his shining moment at the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards, where he performed his breakout song "That's on Me" onstage.
The award show aired on Tuesday night (Oct. 16). The same night, video surfaced of the rapper lying in a hospital bed while being attended to by nurses. He has an oxygen mask over his mouth to assist with his breathing. Across the room, the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards plays on the television, which the rapper is watching intently. He then notifies the RNs that he is the person performing. Surprised, they ask him some questions about the show.
The Dallas rapper appears to be recovering well after being shot on Sunday morning (Oct. 14). As previously reported, Beezy was shot during a drive-by on the Sam Rayburn Tollway in Lewisville, Texas. He was reportedly hit multiple times in the shooting. Authorities arrived on the scene and rushed him to a nearby hospital.
Things seemed dire at first. Fellow Lone Star State rapper Trae Tha Truth posted about the shooting on Instagram. "Damn.... Prayers Up... Bad News Coming From Every Direction The Last 24hours," he captioned a photo of Beezy. "Pull Through🙏🏿 @yellabeezy214 #Texas."
XXL recently chopped it up with Yella Beezy for The Break. He had hopes of being "the next face of the music industry."
