In addition to his feud with 6ix9ine, Lil Reese was also shot in the neck last year. The incident happened at a busy intersection in Chicago in the middle of the afternoon. A light-colored sedan pulled up next to Reese’s car at the intersection and fired approximately two dozen rounds into his vehicle. He was taken to the hospital and treated for a gunshot wound to his neck, but thankfully survived the incident.
When police arrived at the scene, they found Reese’s car covered in blood, but could not find the rapper himself. Witnesses then told police that another man had already come and driven Reese to the hospital. He was ultimately released a few days after the incident, and later claimed that he didn’t think he would have survived if he’d waited for an ambulance. The reason for the shooting is still unclear, although reports suggested that police had identified a person of interest in the case.
In the aftermath of the shooting, Reese took to social media and revealed that he had temporarily lost his voice as a result. He also posted images of the sutured wound as it healed, writing that he’d “need a million” to tell the story of the incident. Now, almost a year after the shooting took place, it seems he’s recovered enough to get in a feud with a fellow musician.
