I walk out of the studio, I’m walking to my car. Anytime I walk anywhere, I got my gun in my hand, walking wherever in Jacksonville, that’s just how you gotta be. As soon as I get to sit down a little bit, n***as get to blowin’, pop, pop, pop, pop. I just see two n***as shootin’. I had located where the shots were comin’ from, like, ‘What the f*ck going on!? I’m dead, I know I’m dead.’ These n***as blowin’. So I leaned back, upped my gun and get to shootin’ back. I shoot my whole clip and sh*t. Them n***as dropped they clip at the scene, all type of sh*t. I thought I popped one of them b*tch ass n***as. I saw the car pull off. When I hopped out the car, I had one slide on and I’m running back up to the studio. I run up to the studio like, ‘Boy, you set me up!’ He’s like, ‘Hell nah!’ He showed me his messages, like, ‘I swear to God, on my mom!’
