Jay Electronica Tells Fans to Help Him Collapse Stage at 2016 Made in America Festival
What good would a star-studded concert be without a little disaster? During his performance, Jay Electronica saw to it that this year's Made in America Festival didn't lack in that department. Jay Elect invited fans to crash the stage.
“If you're scared stay down there. If you're not scared, come up here with me,” he told the crowd. “Let’s try to collapse this motherfucking stage. Let’s try to tear this bitch down.”
What was the cause for the ruckus? A fan told Philly.com when hometown hero Lil Uzi Vert, who performed earlier in the day, came walking by Jay Electronica's performance things went wild. So crazy, in fact, they stopped paying as much attention to Jay Elect's performance. Apparently the New Orleans rapper wasn't having it, so he immediately instructed the wild fans to help him collapse the stage he was standing on. A stampede ensued, and the police were called to deal with it, but luckily, no one was injured.
Things got pretty raucous during Jay Elect's set, but that shouldn't stop you from seeing the show. Not even the lack of a ticket can do that. Tidal streamed some of the performances from yesterday's session of the Made in America Festival, and they'll be live-streaming the event again today.
Yesterday (Sept. 3), Rihanna, Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Bryson Tiller, Lil Uzi Vert and Dave East all set the stage ablaze during their performances. Today (Sept. 4), Chance The Rapper, Tory Lanez, Desiigner, Banks & Steelz, DJ Khaled and Lil Yachty are set to pick up where they left off. Let's just hope they don't start a stampede. You can check out performances from the event here.
