XXXtentacion Violently Knocked Out In San Diego, Assaillant In Critical Condition After Being Stabbed

Published

on

Last night XXXTentacion was performing at the sixth stop of his Revenge tour in San Diego and was the victim of a violent on stage assault by one of the concertgoers which left him unconscious, knocked out on the ground.

Video of the incident quickly emerged on social media showing the moment X was viciously attacked, by who could be a Rob  Stone affialiate, before security quickly neutralized the assaillant.

In fact the young floridian superstar, who have seen his career skyrocketed from his ‘ Soundcloud hit’ ‘Look at Me’ has had a rap feud with Sa Diego Rapper, Rob Stone, who jumped X’s business partner Ski Mask The Slump God earlier this year while he was performing, which outrageous buttnaked footage went viral on the web.

After the concert, the observatory venue turned into a riot while dissapointed fans yelled “Fuck Rob Stone,” while these allegation doesn’t seem to gather any immediate connections.


Nonetheless, some on social media believe it was either Stone or someone connected to him seen in the video below.

Footage also shows X coming back on stage, though he’s looking out of it in the brief clip. He also tweeted about the incident: “security and venue set me up, I got sucker punched and knocked out, it is what it is […] next time make sure you kill me so I can’t talk shit.”

X also alluded to someone getting stabbed after the melee, and Fox 5 San Diego reports someone was indeed taken to the hospital in an unknown condition with stab wounds.

 

Although the tour just started on the last day of May, there was already chaos at the very first show in Houston when Wifisfuneral, who’s a member of X’s Members Only crew, got jumped in the crowd after stagediving.

The piece is a tact acknowledgement of Banksy’s support for Black Lives Matter and social justice initiatives following the tragic death of George Floyd. It’s also accompanied by a full statement from the artist himself:

“At first I thought I should just shut up and listen to black people about this issue. But why would I do that? It’s not their problem, it’s mine.

“People of colour are being failed by the system. The white system. Like a broken pipe flooding the apartment of the people living downstairs. The faulty system is making their life a misery, but it’s not their job to fix it. They can’t, no one will let them in the apartment upstairs.

After dropping his fourth studio album Starz in May, Swedish cloud rap pioneer Yung Lean has announced that he’ll be donating all his streaming royalties and merchandise profits to #BlackLivesMatter and bailout funds for the foreseeable future.
