Boonk Gang posted an imagine himself in a hospital bed hours after Tweeting: “The hardest gangstas still feel pain.” Hopefully that message still resonates for Boonk, as he recovers from gun wounds he suffered within the last 10 or so hours. The rapper-comedian-troll made the announcement Twitter since his Instagram account was impounded totalling a loss 5 million followers. But in moments like these, such frivolities are little concern.
Though many consider Boonk to be a mild annoyance, the Florida hip hop community is not prepared to mourn again, even a less-favored child. Make no mistake about it, Boonk is going to be A-Ok, he even said it himself: “Got Hit 2 Times But Im Solid.”
Boonk shot up to fame on Instagram by documenting his “live-trolls,” scenes where he’d steal a loaf rye from an old woman and skate f into the distance. This week his resolve was to put to the test well before he ended up in the ICU. He nearly puked during an interview with Adam22, and had a public meltdown on Snapchat over the passing XXXTentation. If reports are to be believed, Boonk has been completely inebriated for three weeks in a row.
Let’s hope he receives the attention and the resources needed to land back on his feet.
