Lil Scrappy and his friend Ca$ino Roulette are lucky to be alive after experiencing a nasty car accident in Florida, but now the South Carolina rapper is suing for his life-threatening injuries.
Earlier in June the two artists slid off the road and crashed into a utility pole in Miami after Scrappy allegedly fell asleep behind the wheel. Roulette suffered broken ribs, a head injury, damaged lungs, liver and kidneys and was in the Intensive Care Unit for three days.
Roulette attorney Brett L. Schlacter, revealed to TMZ that the rapper is “lucky to be alive” after suffering from extensive injuries and claims Scrappy’s careless driving is what caused the car wreck. However, the Atlanta rapper told the news source he doesn’t recall falling asleep behind the wheel, but it may have been possible.
The South Carolina artist is asking for compensation for his medical expenses, injuries and wage loss. He set up a GoFundMe page and has only raised $80 of $10,000 since Thursday.
According to authorities, Scrappy won’t be convicted of any charges for the car accident.
