Former Three 6 Mafia member Crunchy Black has finally broken his silence on getting shot in the face last weekend and said he is already back to music-making.
Crunchy said surviving a near-fatal shooting has only helped to motivate him in the booth.
“I’m in the studio just trying to get some motherf*cking songs done up, you know what I’m talking about, and show these folks ain’t no stopping me, man,” Crunchy said with bandages over his face. “Every time I find out I’ve got another group of haters, man, it just helps me out a little more to keep on pushing and pushing. So yeah, it motivates me like a motherf*cker.” (Too Real For TV)
