New York has always been a fun spot for Freddie Gibbs. Last night however, the Big Apple tried to bite back in the worst way.

Following at show at Rough Trade the rapper and members of his entourage were shot at by an unknown gunman. Gibbs sat in a vehicle when the gunman opened fire, hitting two members of his entourage. While their injuries were non-life threatening, Gibbs gave a statement to the NY Post highlighting that he was still here. “They tried to kill Tupac. They tried to kill me, I’m still alive.”

The scary thing according to the report is how close it could have turned differently for Freddie Gibbs.

“The gunman was seen on security video inside Rough Trade, trying to blend into Gibbs’ entourage while his crew was hanging out inside the club’s Guardian Green Room, police said.

“’He [the shooter] was standing around you guys all night,’ an investigator told Gibbs. ‘He was stalking you guys. We can tell on camera, he wanted it to look like he knew you, but it’s clear he didn’t. When you guys left, he was waiting for you outside.’

‘Cops showed Gibbs pictures of the gunman, and another man seen inside the club with him, but the rapper didn’t recognize either man.

‘The gunman could have shot Gibbs inside, but instead opened fire when they were all outside.

“‘At one point, he [the shooter] was standing right next to you,’ the investigator said. ‘The opportunity was there if he wanted to shoot.’”
