Murda Beatz found himself a trending Twitter topic on Saturday (August 8) after he falsely claimed Brooklyn rapper Fivio Foreign had been shot and killed.

The rumors of his death hit the internet after claims Fivio was involved in a shooting incident outside of the Elleven45 lounge in Atlanta, Georgia started to spread. But according to a tweet from producer Kenny Beats, those claims were premature and 100 percent false.

Fellow New York rapper Rah Swish also assured Fivio’s fans he wasn’t even involved in the shooting, writing, “Fivio not shot or injured or was shot at. Had nothing to do with that situation.”

But that didn’t stop Murda Beatz from propelling the death rumor forward. Upon learning the fake news, the 26-year-old beatmaker — responsible for songs such as Travis Scott’s “Butterfly Effect” and Drake’s “Nice For What” — headed to Snapchat to mourn Fivio’s “death.”

“Rap game fucked,” he wrote. “rip Fivio.”

After discovering Fivio was indeed alive and well, Murda Beatz promptly issued an explanation, writing, “My deepest apologies. I got a call from a friend in Atlanta who gave me false information. Thank god he’s ok and sorry for posting without confirmation anyone I upset by my mistake.”

However, it was too late. Twitter erupted with reactions to Murda Beatz’s death proclamation, while Fivio hopped on his Instagram Stories to show everyone he was actually living his best life with a plate of lobster, champagne and fruity cocktails.
