You know that the game is changing when Hip-Hoppers can enjoy an M.O.P. concert in peace but find themselves experiencing an all-out melee at a Skate Maloley show. Such was the case this past Saturday night (Feb. 20) when a brawl broke out during the rapper’s gig at Webster Hall in New York City and he found himself getting into a tussle with the club’s security team.
The Nebraska rapper alleges that he and his team were roughed up by security after they tried to help fans who were being assaulted by the very same guards during his performance. Maloley took to Twitter to air out the situation.
Webster Hall responded to the incident on it’s Tumblr page:
Saturday’s incident is being fully investigated, as there are misreports about what took place. Webster Hall’s staff do NOT carry tasers and are not armed. They carry strobe flashlights. The safety of all guests is always our primary focus.
This incident involved artist and artist management, which required Webster Hall staff to intervene. The parties responsible for the incident then continued to escalate the situation. Webster Hall’s staff do not carry tasers or weapons of any kind. References to alleged weapons are false. While the incident is of course unfortunate, we are fortunate that no serious injuries were actually reported. An investigation of the incident and the people involved is ongoing. Anyone found to be involved in any wrongdoing will be dealt with immediately.
