Dugg went on Instagram Live with Atlanta-bred rapper Lil Baby to address the online rumors that he was one of the victims. The “We Paid” performer told his 4PF label head that the internet repeatedly creates fake news about him.
“Y’all stop with that fake s###, man. We ain’t been around no gun shooting, none of that,” said Dugg. He added, “Real talk, man. We good… Thanks for the love, though. I appreciate the love, though.”
According to the Atlanta Police Department, a 40-year-old man at the scene was arrested on a drug charge and not considered a suspect for the shooting. Authorities are currently investigating who may have fired the shots.
