“Who wanna fight? Who gangsta enough to do that?” he announced to the crowd, before attempting to address the culprit: “You wanna fight? Pull up to the front. Swear to God.”

He directed his security detail to “bring him on the stage”. “I wanna show him how my hands really work,” he remarked.

A fan was then pulled from the crowd by a security guard and brought to the photo pit. The fan is shown to be slapped and manhandled before being escorted out of the pit.

According to HipHopDX, the incident happened days after a street altercation between the rapper and a group of individuals, which reportedly took place after a show in Southhampton earlier this month.

Last April, Lil Tjay released his second album ‘Destined 2 Win’. Before its release, the rapper unveiled his third EP, ‘State of Emergency’, in May 2020.

In NME’s two-star review of ‘State of Emergency’, Kyann-Sian Williams wrote that its “only state of emergency surrounds the genre-hopping Tjay’s apparent artistic identity crisis.”
