Southern rapper Rich Homie Quan is making headlines this weekend with leaked footage of himself getting into a scuffle with a concertgoer reaching the masses. #SlapHappy
Footage of Rich Homie’s incident from an Independence Day show surfaced Saturday (July 5).
The BET Awards best new artist winner Rich Homie Quan might be up for best live molly wop next year — after Quan laid a pimp slap on a fan in Wisconsin. The 24-year old rapper played a gig at 3 Monkeys in Racine Friday night — and during the set a fan attempted to pull himself onstage using RHQ’s arm … according to Rich. Big mistake. Quan scolded the guy from the stage … and moments later slapped him in the head. For now, cops say no one’s filed a complaint, but the message is clear: Homie don’t play that. (TMZ)
A few months ago, Quan addressed media frenzy after he was hospitalized over medical complications.
“I just want to thank my fans and everyone who has called concerned about me,” he said. “I want to clear up two things, after being in 3 states in 3 days, up early having to shoot my video for ‘Walk Thru’ and even sleeping in between scenes on top of filming in this humid Atlanta heat, I fainted and hit my head. It’s no secret that I do turn up, I don’t deny that but I’m not addicted to anything including drugs nor was I leaning at the shoot. The media is gonna put fake stories out there but I just want to let my fans know that I’m good and recovering. The second thing is, I promised I will never stop going in and I mean that.” (Billboard)
Quan’s camp also clarified the widespread seizure reports.
According to Quan’s day-to-day publcist, Johnathan Sims, the medical staff stated that it wasn’t as bad as people were led to believe. “The doctor actually said he didn’t have seizures,” he shared. “His muscles were tense and contracting causing him to have sharp pains which made him move around in a seizure-like manner.” (Billboard)
Quan updated concerned fans and explained what went down in early May.
“Thank u lord ???????????? prayer is power,” Quan tweeted May 7.
“First and foremost I want to Thank God for his blessings. Your boy just been grinding too hard. Thanks for all of the prayers… I’m okay” (Rich Homie Quan’s Twitter)
