Rich The Kid’s 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend Performance Interrupted by Man Brandishing Gun
Most of your favorite hip-hop stars have descended upon Los Angeles for 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend, and for some of them, things haven't been going as planned. Rich The Kid was performing in Hollywood, Calif., last night (Feb. 17), when a man brandishing a pistol in the parking lot caused a major stir interrupting the show.
The "New Freezer" rapper was performing at Lure nightclub, and everything was going well, until someone was spotted wielding a gun and all hell broke loose. According to TMZ, cops were called and they quickly swarmed the area, some toting high-powered rifles. Frightened concertgoers reportedly ran into the streets as police searched for the suspect whom they never located.
This wasn't the only scary incident that took place at a hip-hop-related event last night. Nipsey Hussle's Victory Lap album release party ended in gunfire, leaving one person struck in the thigh. According to reports of that incident, shots rang out in the parking lot around 11:30 p.m. Police arrived on the scene, accompanied by a helicopter, but by that time, the shooter had left and the person who was shot reportedly did not want to cooperate with the police investigation. Nipsey was nowhere near the shooting, and it is unclear if he was even at the venue when the shots popped off.
In another incident that luckily didn't go any further than it did, Twista was involved in a fight following a party hosted by Michael Jordan in Bel-Air, Calif., on Saturday.
