Lil Reese is out of the hospital after reportedly being shot in the neck.
On Friday (Nov. 15), Reese appeared on his Instagram Live. In the clip, which has gone viral on social media, the Chicago rapper is covered in a black hood while looking at the comment section while bopping his head to Jon B.'s 1997 song, "They Don't Know."
The rapper was shot on Country Club Hills, Ill.'s 167th Street and someone reportedly took him to the hospital before police arrived at the scene. He had been in South Suburban Hospital's emergency room before being transferred to Advocate Christ Medical Center where he was said to be in critical condition.
After Reese was shot, his friend Lil Durk tweeted a message that reads like an update on Reese's health. "Reese good 💙," he wrote.
Lil Reese is a veteran of Chicago's drill scene and he first got truly large-scale exposure after appearing on Chief Keef's 2012 single, "I Don't Like." From that point on, he continued releasing new music while remaining a respected figure in the world of hip-hop.
In 2017, he teamed up with Lil Durk for their joint project Supa Vultures. Last fall, Reese dropped his Normal Backwrds project.
