In one of the most ridiculous shootings in rap history, Gravy was shot right outside Hot 97 in April 2006 but then managed to go and do an interview with Funk Master Flex right after. However, police eventually figured out that Gravy was actually shot by one of his boys for publicity.

Coincidentally, in an example of art imitating life, an episode of The Sopranos titled "The Fleshy Part of the Thigh" involved a very similar plot line where a rapper gets shot in order to drum up controversy but ends up shot in the butt. However, The Sopranos episode aired a few weeks before the Gravy incident.
