What happened to Roddy Ricch?

During the making of a music video, which also featured rapper 42 Dugg, two men were shot and another man injured.

He was hurt by debris as terrified crew and bystanders took cover on the Atlanta steelyard set.

Witness Teresa Lakes, who was working on the set as medic to take temperatures and screen anyone who entered for Covid, told the station about the panic that ensued after shots rang out.

She recalled: “Everyone started running, trying to get out. Or take cover, lot of places to take cover in there. Anyone that was injured, I laid hands on ‘em to make sure they were OK. Just glad it wasn’t a lot worse then it could have been…could have been worse.”

Was 42 Dugg shot?

Dugg (Dion Hayes), 26, appeared to confirm that neither he or Roddy (Rodrick Moore Jr.) were hurt and were not on the set at the time of the shooting.

He went on Instagram Live with Lil Baby and definitively stated: “Y’all stop with that fake s***, man. We ain’t been around no gun shooting, none of that.”

This is not the first time Roddy has been close to violence concerning his music, as three people were stabbed when violence erupted at a gig in London in 2019.

This new project marks the second time the rappers have worked together, as they previously collaborated on the single Grace in 2020, which peaked in the top 50 on the Hot 100 list.
