Lil Baby’s show at Memphis yesterday didn’t have a happy ending as shooting at Lil Baby concert has left an attendee in critical condition.
Now, this isn’t the first time Lil Baby’s show will be plagued with shooting. A similar incident had happened in 2020 at his Atlanta native’s show at the Bill Harris Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, where his show was interrupted by spray of bullets.
The shooting video posted by an X user-
Another angle of the shooting at the #LilBaby concert in Memphis. You can hear a single gunshot before @lilbaby4PF is rushed off stage. RIP’s are being sent up for a Memphis rapper (withholding the name until confirmation).

The Memphis Police Department were quick on their feet for this one. Although, not quick enough to save that one attendee from being brought out in a stretcher. According to their social media post, they had responded to the shooting at the location of the show 191 Beale Street, at exactly 10:23 PM.

No other injuries were reported and the police had also taken measures to clear the facility. Tragically putting a halt to another one of the rappers Shows.
The shooting at Lil Baby’s concert however, doesn’t shock fans. Someone said – “I already knew I was gonna wake up to a shooting at the Lil Baby concert. Rap concerts are going to be gone soon. The crowds are the issue sadly. The content don’t make it any better and fuels the issues.” Since this is no new scene at Rap concerts people agree.”
We are still waiting for Lil Baby to address the incident. GloRilla on the other hand has dropped her 2 cents. On an Instagram live (post-shooting), she was seen to be running out of the venue saying between breaths- “What the fuck! Cos these folks just got they gun in the fucking arena, fool, insa*ne! Yes y’all, Memphis is ghetto as fuck. We’ve been on the tour this whole fucking time and today they wanna fucking shoot. There hasn’t been a shootout at not one of these shows.”
and a man in the background saying
Yes, Memphis is INS*NE! Type out ‘Memphis shooting’ and see how many results pop up. We can only hope for a quick recovery for the injured attendee and more peaceful shows for the rapper going forward.
These are people’s thoughts on the shooting-
Lil baby concert shooting 🤦🏿♂️
