Up-and coming Florida rapper Project Youngin may have been shot while previewing new music on Instagram.

The rapper was playing tunes from his car in an Instagram Live video posted Sunday, when the sound of apparent gunfire rang out and his phone fell to the ground.

On Monday afternoon, the rapper's Twitter page posted a message appearing to address the purported shooting.

"Thank you everyone for your prayers. We will let you know about Project Youngins condition soon - PY team," the tweet read.

The rapper posted an Instagram story in a studio in Broward County earlier Sunday night, according to XXL Magazine. Breakout rapper XXXtentacion in June was shot and killed in Broward County.

Project Youngin's first noteworthy release was a 2017 track called Family Eats, with Atlanta rapper Ralo. He's collaborated with many rappers since, and his latest mixtape, Group Home Living, dropped in May.

He was apparently showcasing a new track from his upcoming mixtape Thug Souljas, and recently posted on Instagram asking his more than 152,000 followers when he should release it.

In the video, the rapper, whose real name is Rasheed Jamaal Hall, sings along to an unreleased track as he counts a stack of $100 bills.

"This song right now, though, you're all going to get that. It's on the way. It's coming," he says in the video.

Then, three shots apparently ring out, and the camera drops to the floor. An unidentified person coughs twice before the video abruptly ends.

Representatives from the Broward County Sheriff's Office were unaware of the incident. Messages to the rapper's social media accounts and associates were not returned.
