Last month, rapper Yung Berg was reportedly robbed by a London artist and Ruff Ryder's Drag-On escaped a failed robbery attempt.
"I just came from the motherf*cking store trying to cop a dutch, b*tch a** n*ggas trying to rob me and all that," Drag said in a self-recorded video. "See the little bullsh*t a** chain, see my watch, my ring. N*ggas ain't get nothing though! You see the little bullsh*t scratch, here and there, and all of that though. N*ggas tried to rob me but they ain't get sh*t! Straight up and down. Soon as a n*gga step right up, boop, bop, bop, bop! N*ggas tried to jump on me and all that. N*ggas is p*ssy, straight up dog.
