The shooting arrives at a time when Beezy is gaining considerable traction thanks to his recent hit, “That’s On Me.” The song currently sits at number 88 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in September the Hitco-signed rapper secured an opening spot for Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s On the Run II September stop in Arlington. In a recent Rolling Stone interview, the Dallas rapper opened up about the slow burn of “That’s On Me.”
“It was just something I was playing with,” Beezy said. “I knew it went hard. Everybody was jamming it. It grew in the streets, the strip clubs.”
