The Who Do You Love? MC, real name Keenon Jackson, was leaving a recording studio in the early hours of 12 June (15), when an unidentified gunman shot three bullets into the rapper's hip.

While reports showed YG was later admitted to a local medical centre, the rapper now reveals there was much more drama before he and his friends arrived at the hospital.

In his first interview since the incident, YG tells, "After I got shot, I'm telling everybody, 'Take me to the hospital, because I can't die.' We hop in my homie's (friend's) car and bam - we got in a car accident!

"We hit an island trying to avoid another car. We had to hop out of the totalled car, hop in another car. At the hospital we had to tell people, 'Take me serious right now (sic) - you don't even understand what's going on.' It was wild."

The 25 year old insists he is now on the road to recovery, and admits he even wanted to head back to the studio the day after the harrowing incident.

He adds, "My mama tells me, 'What are you talking about going to the studio?' (sic) But you know, I got s**t to do - this s**t don't stop for nobody (sic). I came straight to the studio on my little crutches... I'm hard to kill."

YG adds that he has no idea who shot, him saying the incident happened "out of the blue."
