You can watch what Yachty's got to say in the video below.
Lil Yachty reportedly got into a scuffle at 2019 Rolling Loud Los Angeles.
According to a report TMZ published on Monday (Dec. 16), Yachty and his crew allegedly punched and kicked a man who reportedly was talking trash at the rapper. The incident reportedly happened at Rolling Loud Los Angeles at the Banc of California Stadium on Sunday night.
In the video, Lil Boat and his entourage confront a person who allegedly was disrespecting the rapper. Suddenly, an elbow is thrown and the man begins to run away. That’s when the 22-year-old rapper and his crew chase after the unidentified man and begin punching and kicking him. In the clip, Yachty can be seen delivering some kicks to the man while he's on the ground.
While the lighting for the video can make it difficult to easily identify people, the person who recorded the video can be seen following the group and calling out Yachty's name. The man is also wearing the same gear Yachty wore during his Rolling Loud performance earlier that day.
By the time security intervened, Yachty and his crew were long gone; they reportedly hopped in a shuttle van and left the scene. No police report was filed.
There's no word what initially started the confrontation. Lil Yachty, who released Nuthin' 2 Prove in October 2018, was among the performers for the final night of the Rolling Loud L.A. festival.
XXL has reached out to Lil Yachty's rep for comment.
