NBA Youngboy was allegedly involved in a shooting that reportedly left one person dead just hours before he was due to appear on stage at Rolling Loud.
Whilst on the way to a live performance at Rolling Loud Festival, rapper NBA Youngboy was reportedly shot at whilst travelling in a van with his crew and girlfriend.
TMZ reported that shots were fired near Trump Beach Resort in Miami with eyewitnesses claiming that someone opened fire on the van YBA Youngboy was travelling in - the rapper was not shot himself but it's claimed that the person who opened fire on him was killed.

Initial reports had suggested that NBA Youngboy's girlfriend Kay Marie had been shot in the gunfire but those reports appear to be incorrect at the time of writing.
TMZ also reported that several people at the scene suggested NBA Youngboy's security had chased down the alleged attacker and shot him dead, with a body later seen being wheeled into an ambulance on a stretcher in footage from the scene.
Miami Police are yet to confirm the facts around the story, however they have stated that another shooting happened not far from the scene shortly afterwards and they're investigating to see whether the two are linked.
