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.
