A rapper has taken social media dedication to a new level and posted a video of his face dripping with blood, moments after being shot in the head.
Compton rapper Teriq Royal prioritised a video selfie over urgent medical care, as he revealed the aftermath of the painful incident.
Dripping with blood, he speaks directly to the camera, admitting he has God to thank for saving him.
The musician was shot with an AK-47, and told his followers: “I guess I’m really a rap n***a now I just got shot… Me and my soldier are all here, n***a.”
He later explained in a post on Facebook that he had been hit by the bullet fragments which have now become permanently embedded in his skull.
“Yes me and the homies got shot at couple days ago AK47 bullet flew past my head and I was hit with the bullet fragments , 3 frags stuck in my forehead for life,” he wrote.
“They stopped right on my skull before they could enter my brain …GOD IS REAL YALL !
“I should’ve died that night but I felt God move me back just enough for the bullet to miss.
“Take this life s*** serious ! I was almost on a T-shirt I’m just blessed enough to be here for a reason, can’t nobody stop Gods plans.”
