Yella Beezy was possibly on a hit list
Some sources are saying that Conway was one of the rappers on the so called enemy hit list. Others are saying that the shooting was in retaliation from a comedian by the name of Roylee Pate who was shot in the leg two weeks ago, according to Earn The Necklace. Allegedly, Conway and Pate were sworn enemies. On a good note, Conway is expected to make a full recovery.
