Baton Rouge, LA – The gun violence continues to decimate the rap community. Weeks after King Von and Mo3’s murders and the Benny The Butcher and Boosie Badazz shootings, YoungBoy Never Broke Again’s brother, often referred to as NBA Big B, was reportedly shot over the weekend.
According to the Louisiana-based publication The Advocate, Baton Rouge police found two men at an Airline Highway gas station who’d both been shot on Friday night (November 20). One of them was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other — believed to be Big B — was rushed to the hospital where he’s now in stable condition with an injury to his leg.

Baton Rouge Police Department spokesperson Sgt. L’Jean McKneely Jr. McKneely said police think the two victims were injured at a different location but drove to the RaceTrac. The suspect who shot the men is reportedly dead.
Online chatter suggests Big B was targeted because of some disparaging comments he made about King Von following his death. During an Instagram Live session, the BR native said with a huge smile plastered across his face, “The jokes on you. You diss now you get repped on.” He added five laughing emojis across the clip in an effort to show he thought the entire situation was funny.
While the validity of the rumors is questionable, the latest shooting undeniably continues the disturbing trend of shootings this month.
