Florida rapper Project Youngin appears to have been shot while filming an Instagram Live video on Sunday.

In his chilling video the 25-year-old rapper, whose real name is Rasheed Jamaal Hall, is displayed debuting a new song in his car, assuring fans that his music will be released soon.



In the clip the St. Petersburg musician nods as he counts and flaunts a stack of $100 bills.

He says 'Yeah, it's on the way, it's coming' then he suddenly shuts his eyes, seemingly ducks down, and drops his phone.

The phone topples to the ground, showing the interior of his car as shouts are heard.

Then there's three loud bangs that sound eerily like gunshots.

Two feeble coughs are heard afterwards before the clip abruptly ends.

The condition of the rapper is unknown following the harrowing video and the rapper's team is yet to respond to Dailymail.com's request for comment.

On Monday afternoon his team posted on Twitter: 'Thank you everyone for your prayers. We will let you know about Project Youngins condition soon - PY team'.



Earlier in the day Youngin shared an Instagram story of himself working at a recording studio in Broward County, Florida, according to XXLmag.com.

It was also in that county where 20-year-old rapper XXXTentacion was shot and killed in June.

As fans wait for an update on his condition, his social media has been bombarded with get well and RIP messages.

However his friend and fellow rapper Foolio posted on Instagram stories saying that the rapper was 'good'.

'Just talked to my brother Project my brother good so stop saying that RIP s**t!!' he posted on Instagram.
