Maino Breaks Down Onstage, “The Police Shot My Friend”

During a show this weekend in Long Island, New York, Brooklyn rapper Maino got emotional during a performance of his latest single, the rags to riches anthem “All The Above.”

Joined by a slew of members from his entourage, a shirtless Maino knelt down on the stage, seconds after the song started. Overcome with feelings, the Atlantic recording artist abruptly stopped the track. “Let me just get this out my system, I got a lot going on in my life now,” he passionately told the audience at L.I. club, The White House. “Let me just say this the police shot my friend and they telling me he might not walk again.” [Watch Below]

Holding his tears back he continued, “But this right here is victory. We unstoppable,” before starting the song back up again.

Hot 97 radio personality Miss Info reports that the man that was shot goes by the name of 80, and that the two are inseparable friends.

The cut, produced by Just Blaze and featuring T-Pain, is the second single from Maino’s upcoming debut, If Tomorrow Comes… The project, which has been long-delayed, has been pushed back yet again. It is now set for a June 30 release date.

    This is a real dude. BK all day!

    On the business side, Maino is gaining momentum. This is a rare moment where pushing his album back will benefit him.

    I’m not gonna say it’s “gangsta,” but it’s definitely real and honest. When you scream about the truth, this is what you want…

      Okay fellas……….

      Didn’t like the “Hi Hater”, uh, movement, but on the strength of my colleagues, I’m going to see if I can locate some of his “promotional” songs on the ‘Nets.

      • tony

        You should have like the song. HI Haters. It fit your azz perfect. Emailing me all this bullshit. I saw you in the street. I will put you in hell.

          @ tony

          Dude, this is the second time you addressed me…

          First off, you stupid fucking retard, I’ve never responded to you on any thread because, honestly, I was under the impression that you were some handicap nigga that had a computer. Surprise, my assumptions are correct.

          You should be placed on a permenant Time Out just for using my name. This is my REAL name, dipshit, not some form of cool moniker.

          & you know something; I do hate you. Brainless accidental pregnancy outcomes are my number one pet peeve. I usually feel sorry for the mentally challenged, but in your case, I’ll make a special needs of an exception.

          How about you don’t mumble any more of your obliviously-less-intelligent-than-the-average person banter in my direction, you stupid human being.

          Yes, tony, I’m talking/typing/responding to you. It’s imbeciles like you who give the new commentors a bad name. How about I do a blog about you on my site? Would that appease you, simpleton? I know plenty of idiots that lack the common sense that God gave the grasshopper, & you fit right in. In fact, you have the criteria to be their leader.

          “I saw you in the street. I will put you in hell.”
          ^^If you do anything to anybody, learn how to speak the language first.

          Warning shot.

          Don’t fucking address me again.

          it takes a real man to cry, his friend got shot wtf u aspect him to do. hes a real nigga, something that your not, so stfu u bitch ass cunt.

  • http://xxlmag.com Ben

    I wonder what his homie did to get shot.Hi Hater.

  • rrahha

    thats some real shit…and it is gangsta…shows you what real friendship is all about. that happened to 380. a bk dude. him and maino are close. i wish him well…just pray for him man…

  • latino heat

    i hope Maino don’t end up like DMX in a few years. remember he used to cry onstage when he did his prayers back in the day?

  • Gorrilah

    Maino is a real G for real.None of this rap dudes can be compared to him.80 was one of them dudes who were there for him during tough times.It aint like 50 and bang them smurf type of thing u know.Keep your head up and do your thing Maino.

    • D-Block

      a real G for real? why, because he has tattoes? because he knows someone that was shot? i guess that make me a real G for real too.

  • The_Truth

    ***I can see dude has really lived that life. . .all that “he’s a real-G” shit is corny, he’s true to what he believe’s as a man. While these other phoney’s wear glasses and throw money in the air, this dude was overcome with a real life situation that caught him in the momement.

    This also speaks highly of TI, because he put him on.

    • dusty boy

      Maan fuck this foo. Hi Hater, this nigga is wack!! and fuck t.i. ol’ pig ass nigga. yall got this music shit all fucked up.

  • T.Whyte5

    Yeah, can’t make fun of that- it’s real. However we don’t know the circumstances of what happened with 80. Just try to be a professional when on stage. Otherwise in this critical age some people think it’s for publicity/pity.

    Hi Hater was catchy- and the Big Mike mixtape I heard of Maino was allright. I don’t who the “hottest” younger rapper is (Are ya’ll still listening to Dip$hit music???) but I do know that everything I heard from Red Cafe seemed better than Maino. Joell Ortiz may not be in shape to take his “shirt off”, but he rhymes circles around dudes like Maino so since I’m not a girl I’d rather go see Joell or Red Cafe… If you got a date and want some that night then I can see taking her to a “shirtless” artist- the LL Cool J syndrome. Otherwise I’ll skip untill I see more promise from him as a MC.

    LIke D-Block pointed out- it’s not a tattoo show- it’s music. If you want tattoos go to a parlor, tats don’t make you a G, it’s so played out- it needs to be about the music.

  • A

    Honestly, Maino seems like a real dude. I’m just not feeling his music. He should pull up his pants as well!

  • KeepItEazy

    This cat doesnt look real, he looks like some dude a record label picked up off the streets and turned him into a “gangsat rapper”. Lol its funny if you ask me

  • the legend

    why everyone dissing dmx you know that when this guy does it he aint pussy, you know u wouldnt say it to his face get knocked out

  • THE REAL

    MAN U COMMENT BLOGGERS ARE LAME HOW ARE U GOING TO SAY HE IS SOFT etc. CUZ HE IS SHOWING EMOTION HE IS A HUMAN BEING WHO FRIEND WAS SHOT WHAT IS HE SPOSE TO HAPPY? MAN YOU PEOPLE ARE CRAZY DOES THAT MAKE HIM NOT REAL OR GANGSTA CUZ HE IS HURT THAT HIS FRIEND MAY NEVER WALK AGAIN? ONCE AGAIN HIP-HOP HAS THE MOST FICKLE FANS!!! BUGGS THA ROCKA IS NEXT UP! MUCH RESPECT MAINO KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!
