Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Yungeen Ace kept his younger brother focused on school and now he’s been committed to the University of Utah.
In 2018, Yungeen, whose real name is Kenyata Bullard, was the lone survivor of a shooting that took place in the rapper’s hometown of Jacksonville. Three people, including the rapper’s brother Trevon Bullard, Jercoby Groover, and Royale D’Von Smith Jr. — all of whom were under 20 — were killed when a silver Chevrolet Cruze pulled up alongside Town Center Parkway just before 11 p.m. and opened fire. The group was out celebrating a friend’s birthday when the tragic incident occurred, and the “B.A.M.” rapper was reportedly shot eight times.
He continued, “It’s something we don’t do. We cook. We don’t eat out. We in the streets — we know how to move like that. So, knowing the rules of the game, we just got caught slipping — [the] wrong time. Just lollygagging, man. Laughing, having too much of a good time.” Yungeen said that when you live a street life, there’s no problem with having a good time and enjoying life, however, sometimes it comes at a price.
He also admitted to suffering from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) since the incident, which include sensitivity to light and sound, confessing that it’s sometimes a battle to enjoy his success. Still, he believes he’s supposed to be alive.
