We shouldn’t be surprised when people post selfies. But when rapper Tariq Royal got shot in the head, no one could expect that he’d post a video of what happened on his Facebook page.

The Compton rapper said that he and his friends were shot earlier in the month. According to his post, Royal was shot by AK-47 bullets, and one stopped right before it entered his brain. It will be lodged into his skull for the rest of his life.

Upon being shot, Tariq said, “I guess I’m really a rap n***a now. I just got shot…”

As things on the Internet go, the video went viral, racking up over one million views in five days. It’s unclear who shot Tariq and his crew at the moment, or why, but we wish him a speedy recovery.
