Benny The Butcher Says Houston Shooters Pulled Up On Him 'Like The Army'

Benny the Butcher says he was ambushed during the 2020 shooting in Houston that had him in a wheelchair for some time after.

They approached his friend first.

"I kinda like hit the gun down and took off on him," he said. He said he ran back to his Rolls Royce when another person approached him with a gun. "I'm like, man, you know, they got me. That's when they backed up, looked around, hit me in my leg," he said.

 "I don't think they shot me for running, to be honest," he said to DJ Envy. "I don't know, I can't speak for them but I feel like -- it was a small dude and these was young dudes," he continued. "Before I got shot, I was 195. I lost a little weight. I feel like n*ggas really didn't want to get close to me until I was disabled."

The rapper added, "Another thing about that situation, you know, a lot of n*ggas think that just some two n*ggas walked up on me like, that wasn't it. N*ggas came like the army. So even now when n*ggas be with security, that don't be enough. For my situation, that wasn't enough," he said. "It's about not putting yourself in those situations and having a deterrent. This really ain't about -- if one of my homies pullin' out and hittin' at something, it's already too late. We already made the wrong move."
