Rapper YG was shot early this morning at a recording studio in Studio City.

Police received a shots fired call around 1:45 a.m. in the 3400 block of Cahuenga Boulevard West, the LAPD told City News Service. Police arrived to find neither a victim nor suspects, though there was blood and shell casings at the scene.

TMZ says the "Toot It And Boot It" rapper was shot three times in the hip and someone managed to get him in a car and drive him to a nearby hospital. His condition isn't known. The shooter is still on the loose.

Police say he's being "very uncooperative." LAPD Sgt. Ernie Fischer told CNS, "The victim is not offering any information. Nor is anyone who drove him there."
