Rapper Kevin Gates may be part of the hip-hop conversation for his bold raps, but he was the talk of social media for reasons outside of his music this week. On Thursday (Jan. 1) the Baton Rogue, La. native shared a video on Instagram, which appears to show him striking a woman in the face.

The alleged victim is Jhonni Blaze, a model and member of this season's 'Love and Hip Hop' cast. The startling post begins with Blaze, who appears to be intoxicated, talking to no one in particular, stating, "These n----s, ain't gonna do s--- to me. Always talking s---, always tryna..." Before she has a chance to finish her sentence, Gates suddenly appears in the camera angle and seemingly hits the unsuspecting female. "Ooh, babe. My mouth. That's my teeth, that's my teeth," she shouts. "Ain't nobody give a f--- about your motherf---in' mouth. I don't get tired," the rhymer responds.

Although the attack is not fully captured in the clip, after looking at the visual, the exchange speaks for itself. "Caught one slippin in public @thejhonniblaze #bwa #idgt #imlivinlikedis," he wrote as the caption to the video.

While neither Blaze nor Gates have commented on the situation, the latter seems not to have lost any sleep over it, keeping the clip public on his Instagram page for all to see. He continues to make posts on social media without missing a beat.

This isn't the first time that Jhonni Blaze has found herself in the cross-hairs of a popular rapper. Just days ago, Meek Mill posted a picture on Instagram chiding all of the women that cling to rappers with nothing to offer. Fabolous, notorious for his lady-killer ways, was even more direct in the comments section of Meek's post, tagging Blaze's Instagram handle, suggesting that she is of the ilk that Meek was referring to.
