Brooklyn Rapper Gravy Shot In Front Of Hot 97

Brooklyn rapper Gravy was shot Wednesday (April 26) outside New York’s Hot 97, moments before conducting a radio interview.

The 28-year-old MC (born Jamal Wollard) was hit with one bullet in the buttocks after arriving at the radio station at about 9:30 p.m.

Police said a group of men got out of a black Escalade and opened fire, hitting the rapper once.

As bystanders screamed and ran at the sound of gunfire, Gravy calmly entered the Hot 97 studios to do the interview, the New York Post reports.

The rapper reportedly arrived at the station with about 30 people, who wore T-shirts with displaying his name.

Police later sealed off the radio station to search for victims after receiving dozens of 911 calls. Cops found Gravy wounded and limping inside the building, according to sources, who say Gravy told authorities he had fallen after being asked what happened.

Officers then discovered blood on Gravy, who was taken to St. Vincent’s Hospital in stable condition.

The rapper was followed by a distraught woman in a Bentley after he asked, “Where’s my car?”

In 2001, another shooting incident took place outside Hot 97 involving rappers Foxy Brown and Lil’ Kim, who is currently serving 366 days in prison for obstruction of justice in the case.
