BRITISH rapper Mist has said he is “recovering well and ready to make more hits” as he published a video of himself limping with a bandage on his left leg.
He was filmed by a friend walking across a room with the bandage over his left leg where he was shot as his summer anthem ‘So High’ featuring fellow rapper Fredo played in the background.
The caption on the video read: “I was last year and I’m still the guy.”
The 27-year-old, real name Rhys Thomas Sylvester, was rushed to Faro Hospital by friends after being shot at a rented villa in the parish of Almancil on the Algarve.
The award-winning British rapper was shot at a luxury Algarve villa during a suspected robbery.
The burglars are said to have taken the 27-year-old’s passport, phones and jewels during the apparent break-in.

The drama occurred inside a villa outside the upmarket Quinta do Lago resort which is a favourite of former footballers Steven Gerrard and John Terry.
Birmingham-born Mist, real name Rhys Thomas Sylvester, was driven to Faro Hospital in a white Mercedes by two friends.
The pals, a man and a woman, reported to police at the hospital that he was shot in the leg around 10pm last night during a robbery committed by two or three men with an Irish accent inside the rented villa.
Heavily-armed officers from two police forces, the GNR and PJ, went to the villa and forced entry to make sure the suspected burglars were not still inside.
Hospital officials and police have yet to release about information about the condition of the rapper, a Mobo award winner whose February 2018-released second EP Diamond in the Dirt peaked at number four on the UK Albums Chart.
Three songs from the EP also entered the UK Singles Chart.

Mist, who was sentenced to 14 months in prison in October 2014 after being caught driving without a licence following a police chase, performed at the Afro Nation Festival in the Algarve resort of Praia da Roche at the start of the month.
He posted a photo of himself, bare-chested and showing off his impressive biceps the same day he performed.
In an interview after taking to the stage, he said: “It’s been a beautiful experience, really nice. I’ve missed my flight back a couple of times so it must have been good. It wasn’t intentional. That’s all I can say for the camera.”
Mist spoke about his transformation from prison inmate to music star shortly after his release from HM Prison Birmingham in an interview last year.
The rapper, whose guitarist dad played in a band that performed on Top of the Pops, said: “A lot of people say prison makes or breaks you. I can say it made me. It made me look at life differently. I valued things that I never valued before in my life.
“I just looked at life from a different angle, and I kind of stepped back from all that fast-paced living and started living just for one day and actually looking at where I want to be in life and in my future. It made me, man. It gave me a drive. I feel like before I went to prison, I never had a purpose.”
