Rising Rapper Sporty-O Shot Twice
Atlanta, GA rapper Sporty-O is in stable condition, after being shot twice early today (May 2) near his East Point, GA home, in what sources have called a botched robbery attempt.
Sporty-O, born George Williams, is best known for his role in Jamie Kennedy's hit series Blowin' Up.
Witnesses said the rapper argued with another man near the Buckingham Court apartment complex. A short foot chase ensued.
Sporty-O was shot twice around 4:00 am, suffering a gunshot wound to the face and leg.
He collapsed just as he attempted to enter his apartment and was taken to a local hospital by an innocent bystander.
Two other men were also shot and injured in the altercation.
The rapper was eventually transferred to Grady Hospital, where he underwent surgery and was listed in stable, but critical condition.
Sporty-O recently released the single "U Not Beyonce," which has received airplay on various radio stations across the country.
A representative for Sporty-O said that the rapper plans to be "back on his feet and performing within the next 4 weeks."
Sporty-O recently released SuperSport: The Mixtape Vol.II, through the 113 Music Group.
The mixtape features appearances by Sean P of the YoungBloodZ, Bone Crusher and others.
