Yella Beezy

Dallas-based rapper Yella Beezy was shot multiple times while driving on the Sam Rayburn Tollway in Texas early Sunday, according to published reports.

Officers found the wounded rapper at 3:30 a.m. along the State Road 121 Bypass, according to Lewisville police.

Beezy, whose real name is Deandre Conway, was driving on the toll road when another car pulled alongside and someone in the car let off more than a dozen rounds from a semi-automatic assault rifle.

Managers for Conway confirmed the rapper was hospitalized in critical condition on Sunday. His condition was upgraded to stable on Monday.

Police have not determined a motive for the shooting and no suspects are in custody.

Beezy is best known for his hit "That's On Me". He opened up for Beyonce and JAY-Z during their On the Run 2 Tour stop in Texas.

In a recent interview with VladTV he mentioned his hardscrabble life growing up without a father who was killed when he was 12.

Beezy mentions his dad in "Dawg These Hoes," in which he raps: "I'm Tony Conway's son."

"I appreciate everything I went through because that made me who I am now," he told Vlad.

    THIS him!!!?? I never knew WHO rapped that song. But it's my cut! I don't know what's he's saying....but that ole down souf beat goes in!

    Glad to know he's survived.
    But what I really want to know is, what did the person gain by shooting him? Was there a prize of some sort? Was there a meaningful life progression because they shot him? Did it get them a bigger house, car, bank account, d!ck? QTNA

  • cherrypie

    My cut too Yoni! So sad man, im glad he survived tho and hope he makes a full recovery. Hope the find who did this too. Shyt is crazy for these young kids out here.

  • imright

    i read he put a hit out on that comedian that died over the weekend & this was a revenge hit???????????????

  • SpillyNillie

    Yella WHO???

  • SpillyNillie

    What was the comedian's name?

  • Soda

    RoyLee I think.

  • Yoni7

    I heard about that comedian dying. Were they both from FL? Why did THEY have beef? I saw where the comedian was in the hospital after being shot back in September. I was trying to figure out what exactly did he die from because he seemed to be up, out and about and still being silly after the fact. Did he get shot again, or what happened exactly?

    what did the person gain by shooting him? Was there a prize of some sort?
    ^^^^^^^^^^
    Im sure a monetary prize since it was a rumored hit out on him... but Im not sure how that pans out if the target doesnt actually die.

  • Peppermint Patty

    Yep! I wuda never known...so many "lils" "young this's" "yella dats" I stopped tryna keep up....

  • tintin

    i wonder if these rappers still wanna be about that life when the feel a bullet penetrate their skin and when their life flashes before their eyes.

  • Renee26

    Smh at the interview... Teens can get jobs so wth are he and the interviewer talking about that hustling is the only option for a 15yo out here to help bring income into the house. Smh smh smh don't glorify that type of lifestyle with lies this boy told himself to justify him choosing the street life.

  • Renee26

    Yep...it gives them street cred and battle wounds

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Im right there with you, i don't know what the hell they be saying. My son already told ne not to he sending him emoji, cause i dont know what they stand for??

    Sh!t is ridiculous, man.

  • Yoni7

    From the shooting. That's fugged up.

  • Soda

    Exactly. Amazon is hiring, raised wages to $15 minimum. Okay, they work you like a dog and you have to pee in a bottle at your work station to avoid demerits but it's a legit job.

  • Yoni7

    But he's alive......Almighty bless.

  • Yoni7

    LOL

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    hell it woke me uo . You would think folks will be at home...doing what granny taught them, be quiet let the lord do his work ?

  • Yoni7

  • bemetoo

  • KLo

    i hope they find the uneducated thugs that did this

  • bigtyme

    When did he become Miami based? He is from dallas and lives in dallas.

  • the guest

    Amen. I’m praying for him to pull through.

  • the chosen one

    you are surely right on that one. also, we had to unplug the tv, stereo, anything pertaining to electricity, from the power outlets.

  • FukkFolks2018

    What job can any 15 yo get that can take care of a whole family other than hustling? I dont think they can even work past 8 pm here. I dont feel like that is glorfying. That is his story and he was asked. Like he said what kind of job can you get at 14-15 that is making it truly happen? To pay some rent? Cutting grass? His exact almost words. I blame the adults in his life. Not him. His mom wasnt working and neither was his step pops.

  • FukkFolks2018

    Not at 15 its not.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I was going to point that out but I skipped it.

  • http://www.4flavorsofmecreolemami.com/?m=1 ?4FlavorsOfMe ?????CreoleMami?

    I wish this violence would just stop smh but only in a perfect world sigh... and then one of the Louisiana up and coming young rappers got gunned down yesterday early morning I heard.. talented young men getting gunned down just so sad :(

  • the guest

    Going to listen right now.

  • iWasteTime

    that is still your gravi ?!! ????

  • cherrypie

    Yeah the blame should be solely on the moms and pops. Too mamy lazy ass parents out here. No child at 15 should be worried about paying bills while the parents are sleeping until 2pm.

  • the guest

    Going to listen right now.

    Just saw the video. My goodness, he looks like he’s 12 years old. These rappers are babies killing each other. It’s terribly sad.

  • Django the God

    I enjoy his music, this is disappointing to say the least.

  • Django the God

    ?

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    I don't either and my source is a family man now so he can't tell me anymore lol

  • Yoni7

    Why not? Sharing is caring? LOL

  • pecancandy

    Who? Get well soon.

  • Fire & Ice

    Or continuing to have more kids that they can not afford to take care of.

  • Fire & Ice

    Say what!!! You have to pee in a bottle at your work station???

  • Yardgirl

    OMG!! That song is on the radio right now and I had no idea who it was and whet in the heyl he saying!! LMAO :-))

  • Soda
  • Renee26

    I said help not take care of the whole family...thats momma's job. He talked about her crying because she couldn't pay the light bill and how that made him feel like he had to step up.
    Absolutely blame the adults in his life for even making him think that hustling was an option or even condoning it.

  • Renee26

    The interviewer asked about the struggles and took it from there and agreed about hustling being the only options he had.

  • Renee26

    My son got a list from his school of employers who hire teens... They give it out yearly. Mine worked as a camp counselor over the summer. There are plenty of resources available for families in need...all they have to do is look for them or ask about them. IJS Dial 211 or something before chosing a life of crime.

  • Mama Dee’s Wig Maker

    Lol chile he has his hands full with my 2 yr old niece and my sis in law. I think when he does listen to new music, it's at work lol

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Right. Smh..lol

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    I was knocked out til i heard the boom. I jumped up like , Wtf was that....lol

  • Yoni7

    So sad.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Yep my emote said lets make up. Something along those lines, to my dam son???

  • Renee26

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Thank God he survived. Pray the best for him.

  • Django the God

  • Robert lee Bennett OG

    Why so he can spread more death and misery with his “music “?

  • bigtyme

    who are you telling...I live in Lewisville. Me and my brother were like "the neighborhood is changing" LOL

  • Karen Brady

    Who nah? Glad he's alive though.

  • imright

    idk why they had an issue. im still wondering????? but as far as him being shot i read blod clotts traveled to his lungs & killed him

  • Sassie

    Wow. I was just making a joke about him the other day that I won't repeat, since the boy got shot. Would be mean. I hope he's ok. But I ALSO hope he wasn't out here doing dirt which is why he was shot.

  • imright

    roy lee

  • Sassie

    I was working at a call center at 15 years old. Was a summer job. Then after that I worked at Burger King for 5 whole years. Then I went to a trade school so I could get out of Burger King. What I made at BK wasn't enough to take care of a FAMILY, but at 15 years old who was I supposed to be taking care of? Ninjas be making up excuses to try to glorify why they be on bullshit. And my dad was a crackhead and my mom chose her boyfriend over ME...and I turned out fine. Your life is what u make it.

  • Sassie

    My mom could never pay her bills, but somehow she made it happen...and going out to sell drugs never even crossed my mind. I agree with your thoughts on this, Renee26

  • Sassie

    I SWEAR!!!!!!

  • Renee26

    Amen... Kudos to your mother and so many others who struggled but raised their children in a way that they would never consider that alternative route.

  • DaughterOfaQueen

    Hope he recovers, but he sholl the hell didn't open up for the H-town show.

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Racist Troll

  • CaramelDrop

    Well y’all know this was in retaliation for shooting RoyLee, right?

  • Queen B

    My daughter loves that song lol

  • Peppermint Patty

    Hahaaa! RIGHT! I only kno cuz of my kid....da song beatin but I'm of the tupac generation...I DO NOT get the appeal of this mumble rap, but when in rome

  • Yardgirl

    I have no idea what these newbies mumbling but I agree the beats keep me bopping?

  • Li-Wright

    If he's still alive, he'll probably be in a wheelchair. and whoever tried to kill him will come to finish the job. So Yella will have to get security.
    Anyway, there was a killing of a man in a wheelchair in Chicago and while I don't know the man or his circumstances....what's happening is these old gangsters are shot up and incapacitated and the person who tried to kill them try again and finish the job.
    It's sad what black people have become in this age. We were never this vicious.

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Im in west plano. Hey neighbor

  • Anunnaki, in A twilight Zone

    Chile yes, help me understand that one, we had just sit there tol storm was over if it was durning the day, at night just ho to bed...i hated it. Lol

  • MythCalledLove

    We can't point fingers and blame anyone else until we get our own damn yard together. It pisses me off when we cant show the same outrage when we shoot up our own people. We are hypocrites. Asking and showing outrage at everyone else but turning a blind eye at what we need to be looking at. It just breaks my heart. If anyone is offended you hv that right. But this gun culture everywhere in music when half are just studio thugs. Pulling a trigger is easy its when you see the victim but in the news in the crime metro section its just basic generic. But working in trauma its far from basic or generic.
