“That (expletive) ain’t stop nothing,” the rapper posted on Instagram alongside video of the moment with superimposed lyrics, “when God has bigger plans it’s just a bump in the road. @b.robinson_4 right back in action.”

Robinson shared the post on his Instagram story with a series of exclamation points.
