Lil Baby has broken his silence about the shooting that took place at his last Memphis concert — one that left a man in critical condition.
The Quality Control rapper took to Twitter on Friday (September 8) to explain why he couldn’t finish performing on Thursday night (September 7), and that attendees should expect reimbursement for the purchase price of their tickets.
“Unfortunately I Couldn’t Perform Last Night In Memphis, Ima Make Sure Everybody Gets A Refund Tho,” he wrote.

Multiple videos surfaced online showing the Memphis artist in hospital, hooked up to a machine with bloody bandages on his chest and torso area. In one video, he said regardless of how he may look, he wants people to “pray for me, but pray for the oppos 10x harder.”
In another video, CEO Jizzle declared that no “fuck boy” was going to take him out and for the blogs to stop posting him because “imma dog” and “this shit concrete” referring to his body’s ability to absorb gun shots.
There were additional videos that appeared online which showed the moment the shooting happened along with CEO Jizzle being wheeled out of the venue on a stretcher.
In a social media post, the Memphis Police Department revealed that officers responded to reports of a shooting at 10:23 p.m. at 191 Beale Street, which is the address of the FedEx Forum.
“One adult male shooting victim was located and transported to Regional One Health in critical condition,” the post read. “No other injuries were reported and all have cleared the facility. Please call 901-528-CASH with any tips on this shooting.”
According to WREG-TV, Lil Baby was promptly rushed off the stage to safety following the shooting.
Video of the incident that surfaced on social media shows a melee breaking out at the side of the stage during Baby’s performance before one shot can be heard being fired.
Additional footage, filmed sometime later, shows the victim being wheeled out of the arena on a stretcher.
Though Lil Baby didn’t immediately address the incident, GloRilla reacted to the incident on Instagram Live as she hurriedly left the FedEx Forum.
“What the fuck, cuz?! These folks just got they gun in the fucking arena, fool… insane,” she said. “Yes y’all, Memphis is ghetto as fuck. We’ve been on the tour this whole fucking time and today they wanna fucking shoot. There hasn’t been a shootout at not one of these shows.”
