Earlier this month, Baton Rouge rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again was the target of a shooting in Miami Beach. Although he left the scene unharmed, a bystander was killed. "I wish they would have gotten me, not him," he said through his lawyer in an interview following the incident.
While he's currently behind bars for suspected violation of his probation, The Blast reports that YoungBoy and his record label Atlantic are offering to cover the funeral expenses for Mohamed Jradi, the man who was killed by a stray during the shooting. Atlantic Records and YoungBoy are reportedly "heartbroken" over Jradi's death, and have reached out to try and locate his family.
Jradi was on his way home from finishing a shift as a Hertz rental car employee, when he got caught between the gunfire from the would-be assailant and YoungBoy's entourage. The rapper and his entourage, all of whom have the legal right to bear arms, were leaving the Trump International Beach Resort Miami as they headed to Rolling Loud Miami. They returned fire when YoungBoy was shot at in broad daylight as a car drove past, but Jradi was struck and killed.
If he's found to be violating his probation, YoungBoy faces the possibility of serving the rest of his suspended 10-year sentence.
