Nappy Roots’ Fish Scales is recovering after he was shot in the leg during a robbery and kidnapping effort in Atlanta, Georgia on Wednesday evening.
The incident occurred at the brewery he co-owns with his musical group, Atlantucky, and police allege two suspects first robbed a patron in the parking lot before going inside the brewery and going after Scales, TMZ reports.
The suspects forced Scales into his car at gunpoint and drove him up the road to his house in a nearby suburb. He managed to escape, but was shot in the leg during a struggle.
