Chicago rapper King Yella has survived another attempt on his life, and took to Instagram to show his fans the brutal aftermath.
In a video posted on Monday (July 24), the “Do It Like Me” rapper said “Mexicans in San Bernadino” attempted to shoot him while he was driving through the city with his children in the car, and shared footage of his bullet-riddled vehicle.
“Muthafucka done shot my window out, done tried to kill us in Cali,” Yella said in the clip. “These n-ggas some bitches. Muthafucking Mexicans in San Bernadino. Them n-ggas shot at me and my kids.”
He added: “Y’all n-ggas some hoes. N-ggas shooting at kids and shit. You bitches is weird as fuck. Stupid-ass Mexicans.”

This is just the latest attempt on King Yella’s life. The Chi-Town native was also shot at filming a music video in 2016 on the 6500 block of Chicago’s South Wentworth Avenue.
“They tried to take me out this shit, God got me, though,” a recovering Yella told his social media followers at the time in between swigs of Rémy Martin as he brandished his war wounds on his arm and upper torso.
“I’m shooting a mu’fuckin’ Black Lives Matter video and muthafuckas come and shoot me. It’s cool, you know. I wish you n-ggas the best of luck you know, whoever you was. But guess what man, the devil be working but he can’t overcome God, you feel me? You bitch ass n-ggas can’t stop me, you dumb ass n-ggas.”
He continued: “Right out the hospital, this shit just happened, c’mon man. It’s all good man. I ain’t gonna brag or nothing but y’all n-ggas…hoes! Y’all had me. You could’ve shot me right in my face, you weak ass n-gga. Y’all n-ggas didn’t even hit my bitch, y’all hoe ass, bitch ass n-ggas.”
King Yella’s girlfriend also posed for the Snapchat press conference, revealing the bruises on her leg caused from being grazed by the bullets.
Chicago police told DNAinfo that the shooting occurred at 6:55 p.m. on Tuesday, August 23, and appeared to be gang-related.
King Yella fans haven’t gotten a project from the Chicago rapper since 2021’s Duck Ain’t Dead, but he did drop off a new single with Swagg Dinero last month titled “Black Trucks.”
