He was previously involved in a near-fatal shooting earlier this year.
Malphurs, who has a recent mix tape entitled "Salute Me or Shoot Me, Vol. 2," was shot in the arm at the Bubble Bath Car Wash on Old National Highway in January. The shooting occurred after a scuffle broke out when an armed man approached him demanding jewelry, police said at the time. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
Waka later addressed the shooting and offered a break-down of what happened.
"I'm like, 'I can't believe I'm shot,' " he said, explaining the aftermath. "I felt it in my arm but I looked down and felt it in my chest, my back, everything. It felt like stop, drop and roll. I'm leaking, my arm squirting. I said, 'Call an ambulance.' I felt my body getting woozy. I laid down on a flat surface. That messed me up because that ain't do nothing but put air inside my lungs and blood. I ain't panic. I was like, 'F--- it, I'mma give up. This sh-- hurt so bad. I'm gonna give up.' " (MTV)
