A$AP Rocky Tears Up Fader Fort, Stagehand Hospitalized
Harlem rapper A$AP Rocky, who recently signed a major label deal with Polo Grounds Music/RCA Records, reportedly tore up the stage — both lyrically and physically — at the Fader Fort in NYC on Friday night (Oct. 21).
According to Ozone Magazine, the 23-year-old ‘Purple Swag’ rapper “threw a fit” after performing at the event, purportedly due to the size of his stage, and overturned a drumset. When a stagehand attempted to remove the kit from the stage, he was allegedly jumped by A$AP crew members, who continued to destroy the stage, ending the show prematurely, and sending the stagehand to the hospital.
While A$AP Rocky has yet to release a statement about the fracas, he did make the following tweet, following the incident “We love the Fader.”
Rocky will be joining Kendrick Lamar as an opener on Drake’s Club Paradise tour in January. The Rick Ownes-wearing rhymer recently dropped a new track titled ‘Out of This World,’ produced by The Olympicks.
