Lil Nizzy, a 20-year-old affiliate of Meek Mill’s Dreamchaser camp, was shot early Monday morning. Nizzy, born Nasir Talington, was shot just minutes after leaving his home with his 16-year-old cousin Hakim Bey in the Greys Ferry section in Philadelphia.
Nizzy and Hakim were on bikes when they were shot multiple times with semi-automatic weapons around 12:30 a.m. at 26th and Tasker streets.
“He walks out the door, said ‘Okay, see you later bro,’ and not even two minutes later I hear seven gunshots,” Nizzy’s sister, Najae Talington, told 6 ABC. “I just seen a lot of blood coming from his back side. I didn’t know if he was hit.”
Najae believes hate over Nizzy’s music career was the reasoning behind the shooting.
“I think it was jealousy because he don’t bother nobody,” she said. “He minds his business, takes care of his family and supports his fans.”
Lil Nizzy is in stable condition, but temporarily paralyzed. Hakim is in stable condition.
