Rapper Who Once Said “God Made Me Bulletproof” Dies in Shooting

On December 27, after rapper Yung Mazi was shot for the 11th time, he made a now-deleted tweet with four ominous words: “God made me bulletproof.”

God never did that, of course. But unfortunately, those words are getting a lot of airtime after the rapper’s shooting death this past weekend.


Jibril Abdur-Rahman, 28, who was better known as Yung Mazi, was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds inside the Urban Pie pizza shop in Atlanta’s Kirkwood neighborhood, police said. The restaurant was less than 200 feet from a police station.

WGCL-TV reports that officers heard the gunshots, but the perpetrator got away before police arrived.

The Atlanta-based rapper, whose website says he was “raised a devout Muslim,” had four children. It’s unclear if he was still a Muslim despite his tweet about God. His death comes after a long road to recovery from the previous shootings:

He was shot five times — one bullet hitting him in the head and leaving him temporarily brain damaged, almost ending his life. “When the bullet hit me in the head,” Mazi recollects, “it greatly affected me. I had to learn how to read, write, and speak all over again. I’m still not 100% right. I tried doing my daughter’s elementary school homework and it was hard. I couldn’t count money. My brother had to send text messages for me from my phone. It was deep.

It’s unclear what led to this weekend’s incident. CBS News reports that police still haven’t arrested anyone in connection with his death.
