XXXTentacion Friend C Glizzy Shot in the Head One Year on From Rapper's Murder

Rapper C Glizzy has been hospitalized after being shot in the head almost a year to the day since his friend XXXTentacion was murdered.

The up and coming hip hop star, real name Christian Moore, was reportedly wounded in the head after being gunned down outside a convenience store in Pompano Beach, Florida on Saturday night, WPLG Local 10 reports. The 16-year-old was then rushed to hospital by his mother and brother, but they suffered a car accident on route when they lost control of their vehicle and crashed into a wall on a highway exit ramp.

They eventually made it to Broward Health North Hospital where Moore underwent surgery to remove the bullet from his head. According to WPLG Local 10 reporter Madeleine Wright, the operation was a success and the rapper is expected to survive the attack.
