Gibbs claimed he was the target of a shooting following a performance at the Rough Trade record store and bar in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
'THEY TRIED TO KILL ME'
Shots were fired while he and his team were sitting in a black GMC Denali car.
A gunman allegedly ran up to their car and fired several shots inside, the rapper told the New York Post.
Gibbs claimed: “They tried to kill me, but I’m still alive.”
Cops said the gunman tried to blend in with Gibbs’ team while the rapper was inside the venue.
Police showed Gibbs pictures of the gunman and another person who was seen with him but the rapper said he didn’t recognize either man.
Hip-hop and gangsta rapper Gibbs was signed by the record label Interscope Records in 2006.
He later signed with CTE World – a label founded by Young Jeezy.
Gibbs has since formed his own record label ESGN and has released four solo albums.
His album Alfredo was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Rap Album.
