August Alsina Gets Into Fight at Anti-Violence Concert [Video]
It doesn’t look like August Alsina is letting go of that bad boy of R&B title anytime soon. On Saturday (Jan. 17), the New Orleans singer got into a huge brawl backstage at the Chaifetz Arena in St. Louis, where, oddly enough, an anti-violence concert was taking place.
The dispute started when concert promoter Loose Cannon Slim confronted Alsina for apparently arriving late to his State Of Emergency 2 event. The ‘No Love’ artist didn’t take too kindly to Slim’s admonishment, words were exchanged, and, suddenly, fists were flying.
In the captured footage (provided by TMZ), Alsina’s crew is seen trying to hold him back as things get heated. Their efforts didn’t work as Alsina was seen charging at his opponents and Slim was eventually knocked to the ground in the skirmish. A woman is heard screaming, “No, get off of him,” in a shrill voice during the fisticuffs.
Toward the end, Fabolous — who was also scheduled to perform — is seen watching from a distance as he’s holding his drink, possibly bewildered that a fight was happening at a concert promoting anti-violence.
Meanwhile, Loose Cannon Slim went on Instagram to show that he didn’t get hurt in the melee. Watch his video below.
