C Glizzy, teen rapper shot in the head, smiles as he leaves hospital

A 16-year-old up-and-coming rapper who was shot in the head in broad daylight outside of a Pompano Beach convenience store walked out of the hospital with a bandage on his forehead and a smile on his face.

A video posted to Instagram on Monday showed Christian “C Glizzy” Moore, wearing a white tank top, jeans and gold chain, walking out of Broward Health North in Deerfield Beach with his brother, a well-known Instagram comedian known as Pompano Randy.

Pompano Randy said via Instagram messages that C Glizzy left the hospital a couple days before the video was posted.

The video appears to be the first video to be posted to C Glizzy’s Instagram feed since the June 15 shooting.

Moore’s grandfather, The Rev. John Mohorn, said Moore has been resting and recovering.

“He’s doing real good,” Mohorn said. “God was with him.”

An emerging rapper whose profile has been steadily growing in the music industry, Moore was shot in the head in the 1700 block of Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard at 4:30 p.m. on June 15 after an argument with some other people in the store.

Detectives didn’t release the teen’s name but family members confirmed it was Moore who had been shot.

He’s just been resting, that’s what it calls for,” Mohorn said.

The shooting of C Glizzy came just before the first anniversary of the June 18, 2018, shooting death of Broward hip-hop artist XXXTentacion. C Glizzy and XXXTentaction were reportedly friends, and photos posted to social media showed the two of them together.

The small stretch of MLK Boulevard where C Glizzy was shot, known informally as the “Ugly Corner,” has become well-known, at least in hip-hop circles: Another famous Pompano Beach rapper, Kodak Black, grew up in the area.
