PRETTY Ricky rapper Baby Blue will have to "learn to breathe and walk again" after allegedly being shot by armed robbers.

The R&B artist, 36, shared a statement from hospital on Thursday morning.

"Thankyou everyone for your thoughts and prayers. I’m still in ICU but I’m on the road to recovery," he wrote.

"The bullet traveled throgh my lounges is in stuck in my back. I have to learn to breathe & walk again.

"I have a great medical team here at the hospital. God Got Me. Love, Blue."

His brother recently revealed that Baby Blue tried to grab a gun in a struggle with armed robbers before he got shot.

The rapper tried to protect his cousin but a bullet went through his shoulder instead and pierced his lung, Spectacular Smith added.

Blue remains in hospital after two armed robbers attacked him at the Sparez Bowling Alley in Davie, Florida yesterday.


Brother and fellow Pretty Ricky member Smith, 34, told TMZ: "Blue is still in the ICU and has been hooked up to a breathing machine due to his injury.

"So far only his mom and dad have been able to see him in the hospital due to COVID restrictions."

The armed men were trying to steal a gold chain necklace as the Grind With Me artist was by his car, cops said.

They fled before the police arrived.

Blue, real name Ala Diamond Smith, was rushed to hospital in a critical condition after being shot, his team said.

Graphic footage showing a man, claimed to be the artist, lying on the floor with a bloody arm was posted by news outlet Hollywood Unlocked.

People around him screamed and swore as they called emergency services, told others to "move out of the way" and rolled him onto his side.

Blue was attending a release party for his new song "Jerry Rice," according to his team.

The artist, who goes by multiple different names including Diamond Blue Smith and Baby Blue Whoaaaa, used to be on VH1 show Love & Hip Hop.

He was in R&B group Pretty Ricky with Spectacular Smith, Pleasure P, 37, and Slick 'Em.

Pleasure P, real name Marcus Cooper, left in 2007 and was briefly replaced by Carl Lovett "Mowet."

4Play, real name Christopher Myers, replaced him and wrote most of the bands songs from then.

The group reached stardom in the mid-2000s with gold-selling albums Bluestars and Late Night Special.

They were also known for their platinum singles Grind With Me and On The Hotline.
