She adds that the shots were fired from behind her vehicle and the bullets struck where the spare tire is kept. "They just started shooting. They had their lights off so I never saw them like whoever it was they kept their lights off. I don’t know where they came from. It came from behind. The shots came from behind. They started from behind because when I got to the stop sign I was like ‘Oh s**t somebody’s shooting,” the rapper told the police.
It is not yet clear whether the assailants particularly intended to make Yung Miami their target.
Miami-Dade Police Department has launched an investigation into the incident.
Reports state that the hip-hop star was recently the subject of a threat in a diss track from Kodak Black, who is in prison on gun charges.
Black, in his song, raps that he would "hit that b***h in her stomach" for refusing his marriage proposal.
Yung Miami and fellow rapper JT together make the famous rap City Girls.
The pair are most famous for their guest appearance on Drake's popular hit In My Feelings. They have also collaborated with other popular artists, including Cardi B, 21 Savage, and French Montana.
