What happened to Nappy Roots rapper Fish Scales?
Rapper Melvin Adams Jr., professionally known as Fish Scales, was reportedly seen in public after leaving the Atlantucky Brewery, owned by Nappy Roots, at 11 p.m. At that point, two men came toward him and robbed him at gunpoint. The reports regarding this incident were published in the New York Post.
The assailants made the Nappy Roots rapper travel to his house in Hapeville even though they had already attacked him. Fish attempted to escape from his captors when they arrived in Hapeville; however, one of his captors shot him in the leg. Fish eventually surrendered.
Soon after that, the people who kidnapped Scales escaped, and he went to a neighbour’s house to ask for some assistance. After that, the police arrived at the scene of the incident, and Fish was taken to the hospital immediately after their arrival.
Not too long ago, the band shared an image on their social media of Fish Scales lying in a hospital bed. The band members continued, saying, “he is looking forward to getting back to work both on music and in the brewery.”
At the beginning of this year, Fish Scales opened his brewery.
Fish Scales and another man named Skinny DeVille opened their brewery. Skinny claimed a customer was shot outside the brewery during a conversation with WXIA in Atlanta.
DeVille expressed his relief to the media outlet, stating, “I am certainly relieved that my business partner and brother Scales is safe and recovering…that is what is most important.” Of course, we are also praying for the safety of the customer who was shot outside the business.
According to the reports published in the Atlanta Eater, the brewery will reopen on Friday, August 19, 2022. At present, the brewery is still closed. At this time, the authorities in charge of police investigations are still looking into the whole situation
