Waka Flocka Flame should be counting his blessings this evening (February 16th), as his tour bus was shot at four times while traveling in Charlotte, North Carolina.
The Atlanta rapper sustained no injuries, but was detained for a short while after the incident. The bus was hit four times and per TMZ, members of Waka Flocka Flame’s security team fired back at the assailants, hitting one of them in the shoulder.
The shootout occurred while Waka’s tour bus was parked outside of a stereo shop, awaiting a stereo installation. Two cars pulled up on the stationary vehicle and opened fire.
Waka sent a note out to fans on Twitter, advising that he was fine.
“To my fans N world, I’m good nothing is wrong with my health,” he tweeted. “See yall in Cali for all-star #im1realassperson.”
This isn’t the first time Waka’s been involved in gunfire. Last year the rapper was shot in the arm while fighting at a carwash in Georgia over his jewelry. Late last year the Atlanta MC was arrested after a raid at his home that also netted mentor Gucci Mane.
“Why would I rap and go try to street gang bang? That’s hustling backwards” Waka told a radio station at the time. “Why would I wanna rap all around the world and then go hit the streets and gang bang? I’m a rapper, I’m not a [gang-banger.] How can you gang bang and be a rapper? I don’t understand that,” he said. “I would love to find out where their information is coming from. I can’t wait.”
No word yet on official arrests, but several people are detained.
