It’s a far cry from the East Coast/West Coast rap feud of the 90’s, but what happened to rapper XXXtentacion at his show last night was a ridiculous revival of sorts.
For reasons that aren’t exactly clear, another rapper named Rob Stone warned XXXtentacion, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, not to come to San Diego or he would knock him out. And he apparently made good on that promise, although the identity of the masked man who delivered the blow hasn’t been confirmed.
XXXtentacion had to be helped off the stage afterward and social media was hilariously abuzz with images of the Weekend at Bernie’s like scene.
The rapper’s personal life is also surrounded by controversy. He’s facing prison time for an incident last year in which he allegedly punched and kicked his pregnant then-girlfriend. He’s pleaded not guilty and his trial is set to begin June 26.
