Rapper Lil Reese was reportedly shot at an intersection in suburban Chicago on Monday, Nov. 11. Sources say the troubled musician is in critical condition at a local hospital.
According to TheJasmineBrand, Reese was shot while riding in a car at 167th Street and Pulaski Road about 2:30 p.m. Witnesses told police the wounded man (Reese) was taken to a hospital.
Reese, aka Grim Reaper, was admitted to South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest, but he was later transferred to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, where he is listed in critical condition.
The shooting occurred just months after Reese was assaulted and robbed by multiple men who videotaped the encounter. The video later went viral on social media.
Reese, who reportedly has a terminal illness, lost control of his bowels during the vicious beating.
After the video went viral, Reese addressed the beating on social media. He showed off a stack of money and claimed he was not robbed.
"I got jump[ed] by like 5 niggas all that other shit tell them kill the lies," he said. "I got up still fighting ain't no hoe [in] me bro... Yea ok a jump on ain't shit. Keep listening to all them lies I got 40k on me [right now] nigga ain't taking shit."
Reese, who was born Tavares Taylor, is best known for being a member of fellow Chicago rapper Chief Keef's crew who collaborated on Keef's viral hit song "I Don't Like" in 2012. Also, that same year, Reese went viral for brutally beating a woman who he claims disrespected him in her own apartment.
The 26-year-old Capricorn signed with Def Jam and dropped his 2nd mixtape, Supa Savage, in 2013.
