Tekashi 69 and crew were fed up after a fan tackled the star on stage.
Taking place in Russia, 69’s crew reportedly brutally beat the concert-goer. Per the video that popped up online, the fan rushed the rapper form the side. After knocking 69 down, the man tried to run but was caught by Tekashi down.
Tekashi himself didn’t get involved.
The “FEFE” rapper’s team has gotten into trouble before, as back in April they were being investigated for allegedly firing a gun inside the Barclays Center.
While initial reports linked the gun shots to Adrien Broner — who was wrapped in a crazy beef with the rapper — TMZ confirmed that the two were not connected. Though the incident took place during the Broner fight April 2), Tekashi and his crew are said to have had another target.
According to the outlet’s legal sources, a still unnamed member of Tekashi’s crew let a few off during a spat with Brooklyn native Casanova and his entourage, an alleged rival rap group after the “Billy” rapper began beefing with Casanova online.
The gossip outlet reports: “Tekashi and his guys were heading down a hallway in Barclays to hit up a VIP area in the arena, when they bumped into Casanova and co. along the way. The two crews started pushing and shoving … and someone in Tekashi’s group allegedly discharged one round from a firearm.”
TMZ says a source identified the weapon as a .32 caliber from the shell casings taken from the scene after the fact.
Though authorities believe the shot came from Tekashi’s group, a weapon was not found on any of the members. While Casanova and everyone with him left the grounds immediately after the shots were fired, Tekashi and his team stuck around and cooperated as the police questioned and searched them.
The very next day (April 23), reports came flying in, alleging that Tekashi’s crew were wrapped up in another shooting involving Casnova. TMZ‘s legal sources told the outlet that two men were hit after ten bullets were sent towards Casanova’s group as they filmed a music video in NYC’s Bedford-Stuyvesant. The two victims are expected to fully recovery, though no one was arrested for the crime.
