A$AP Rocky’s show at the Camden Electric Ballroom in London last night (June 6) erupted into a brawl when a fan snatched the rapper’s watch right off his wrist.
While performing his track, “Trilla,” a concert goer grabbed A$AP’s watch and seemingly made a run through the crowd with it. That’s when security and seemingly members of the A$AP Mob jumped from the stage and into the crowd in trying to chase down the culprit and retrieve Pretty Flacko’s watch.
“We not gonna end our show just ’cause someone took a $15,000 watch from me,” A$AP said bluntly on video footage that captured the entire sequence.
Saying that, however, A$AP did pull the mic away from his face, trying to assess where the culprit had gone.
He didn’t have to wait long, though, as seconds later fellow fans seemed to have found the watch snatcher.
“You got it?” A$AP shouted into the crowd, asking for the whereabouts of his expensive timepiece. “That’s what I’m talking about. That’s what I’m talking about. That’s what I’m talking about! And they do love me! Fuck that nigga up! Fuck him! Beat his ass!”
Having gotten his watch back, A$AP was ready to perform again.
“Fuck that! Throw Pesos on, nigga!” Rocky yelled, before performing his hit single. “Throw it on right now…and I’m partying with the crowd, nigga.”
Though it ended well, the incident marked the second time in the span of less than three months that an A$AP Rocky show has broken out into a brawl.
In March, during the A$AP Mob’s SXSW show in Austin, Texas, a massive brawl exploded when a member of the Mob had his do-rag snatched from his head. Rocky did defuse that situation, though.—Jakinder Singh
