The 'Jeffery' rapper suffered misfortune during his performance last night (December 18) in New York
Young Thug suffered a fall while crowdsurfing during his show in New York last night (December 18), with footage showing the Atlanta rapper falling on his head after being dropped by the crowd.
The rapper, who released three well-received commercial mixtapes in 2016 that culminated in August with the lauded project ‘Jeffery’, was performing at New York’s Terminal 5 venue last night (December 18) when the misfortune occurred.
Launching into the crowd during the show, Thug at first appears to start surfing smoothly across the crowd, before being pulled in by the swelling masses as bodies pile forward towards the rapper. As more people surround Thug, he is pulled into the mosh head first, leaving his upended legs dangling in the air.
TMZ obtained video footage of the incident, which you can watch below.
Last week, Young Thug was reportedly reprimanded by his mother after the rapper called Alaska Airlines staff “peasants” on video. Thug has subsequently apologised to the airline staff after his mother intervened, posting a reflective picture of himself on his Instagram account with the caption “When your mama make u go to the airport and apologize…”.
As mentioned, Young Thug released his latest mixtape ‘Jeffery’ in August, with its title taken from the rapper’s birth name. ‘Jeffery’ featured guest appearances from Gucci Mane, Young Scooter, Travis Scott, Wyclef Jean and Quavo. It also included songs titled ‘Kanye West’, ‘Wyclef Jean’, ‘Floyd Mayweather’, ‘RiRi’ and ‘Harambe’.
