Lil B cancelled his set at Rolling Loud festival in Mountain View, California yesterday, claiming that rapper A Boogie wit da Hoodie was among 10 people who attacked him backstage and stole his equipment. Lil B made the announcement onstage himself:
"Hey man, A Boogie and his whole crew just jumped me in the back, man and beat me up in the back, man. That shit crazy, man. But I'mma tell y'all like this: it's all love, I don't promote violence, I'm never with the violence. So I love them and it's all good, you feel me? It's all good. I said something about Boogie's music and they all got mad and they jumped me about that so it's all good. I'm still here. I got jumped by like 10 motherfuckers. Me by myself. It's all love though. Like I said, it's all love. And I got love for everybody. So I just wanted to tell y'all because they stole my shit and everything so I can't even do my show 'cause they stole my shit. Hey, but I say it's all love though and I love them and I love y'all. This is just a testament to show just 'cause somebody do something to y'all don't mean you got to retaliate. It don't matter. God is good, I'm alive. We all alive! It's your boy, Lil B shout-outs to the Based God! Hey, new Lil B music soon man. I'm about to hit this doctor make sure I'm all good, man. These niggas fucked me up. Let's get it."
An apparent video of the incident that started to circulate on social media was retweeted by Lil B. The caption claims that Lil B was attacked by A Boogie, Philadelphia rapper PnB Rock, and both of their crews:
