An Atlanta rapper known as Yung Mazi who previously claimed to have been shot on at least 11 different occasions — and who in December, after being wounded, proclaimed “God made me bulletproof” was fatally shot Sunday night.
Police say it happened when Mazi, 28, whose real name is Jibril Abdur-Rahman, walked out of a pizza shop, just yards from an Atlanta Police Department sub-station.
Officers heard the gunshots, but the perpetrator got away before police arrived.
Officials believe that the assailant had specifically targeted the rapper.
Abdur-Rahman, who was raised a devout Muslim, was last shot in December at a Waffle House.
Hours later, he tweeted “God made me bulletproof.”
In a video posted to YouTube in June 2016, Abdur-Rahman said he had been shot 10 previous times. He said in the interview that he “keeps getting shot” in part due to his skin tone, the fact that “some people don’t like real dudes,” as well as the expensive accessories he wears.
The family has asked for privacy during this difficult time. They declined to comment on the shooting.
Police have not said if they have a suspect. The assailant has dreadlocks and wore a white T-shirt with dark jeans at the time of the shooting. No arrests have been made in the case.
