Atlanta, GA – Roddy Ricch and 42 Dugg were filming a music video in Atlanta over the weekend when someone reportedly opened fire. According to WSB-TV 2, three people were shot on Sunday afternoon (February 21), with two of them hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries. At the time, it was unclear if either rapper was on the scene at the time of the shooting or if they had any involvement.
But as local police continued to investigate, Dugg assured his fans he wasn’t injured during the melee, writing on Instagram, “Appreciate the concern. although I did not get SHOT!!!!”
Now, Roddy has followed his collaborator’s lead with a social media post of his own. On Monday (February 22), “The Box” success story shared a tweet with his 2.8 million followers indicating he was just fine.
“ain’t nobody shoot at me,” he wrote. “we all good. im just tryna feed the streets.”

Officers responded to shots fired at a scrap yard on Wells Street around 4 p.m. local time and discovered a man grazed by bullets. Grady EMS assessed the victim at the scene, while the two other wounded men drove themselves to Grady Memorial Hospital. Those victims’ conditions haven’t been released.
With the exception of the three shooting victims, everybody else on set appeared to escape without injury.
In what feels like a broken record, the latest shooting follows a recent string of disturbing gun violence in the rap community. More recently, King Von was fatally shot outside of an Atlanta hookah bar in November 2020, which was followed by Mo3’s murder on a Dallas highway just a few days later.
