Rapper Boosie Badazz took his first baby steps after suffering a gunshot wound to his leg during a drive-by in Dallas, Texas in November.

Boosie was among multiple rappers who were shot during a violent crime wave targeting rappers last year.

The Louisiana native was shot after attending a memorial for his friend and collaborator, Mo3, who was killed on a Dallas freeway in November.

Boosie, who had been in a wheelchair for nearly two months, took to social media on Tuesday to celebrate his ability to walk on his own.

After asking for assistance to stand up, Boosie proceeded to take a few tentative steps. "I think I can take a few steps, man," he said before rising from the wheelchair and pushing his assistant away.

"Look, I got this b*tch. I got this b*tch," he said before stumbling into the camera. "Man, get your handicapped a** back in the chair now," said the cameraman.

"Hey, I just took my first steps!" Boosie shouted. "You saw me do my sh*t, yeah b*tch! Yeah, it's up!"

"I'm out of breath from that little walk... Man, I'm out of shape, man. I'm out of shape, man. Man. That little walk got me tired already."

The rapper, who has a physical therapist, was in danger of losing his leg to amputation just a month ago.
