Hip hop artist Yella Beezy was shot three times early Sunday while driving on a highway near Dallas, reports the Dallas Morning News. He has been hospitalized and is expected to recover, according to CBS Dallas. The 26-year-old MC, whose real name is Deandre Conway, was fired upon more than a dozen times by a gunman in a vehicle that pulled up alongside his car at around 3:30 a.m. local time on Sunday, police told the newspaper. He was struck three times and taken to a nearby hospital. Police have not determined a motive for the shooting nor have any arrests been made, Capt. Dan Rochelle told the News. The rapper, who is signed to former Epic chairman and LaFace Records cofounder L.A. Reid’s Hitco, opened for Beyoncé and Jay-Z at the pair’s “On the Run II” tour stop in the Dallas and Houston-area shows earlier this year.
