During a live show at SOBs in New York City, OVO Sound artist ILoveMakonnen got attacked by a member of the audience. A man in a hooded sweatshirt proceeded to punch ILoveMakonnen…then run away. There is footage from the performance, which shows the hit-and-run take place.
ILoveMakonnen ate the punches, and continued his performance after getting up off the floor.
Why did the attack happen? Nobody knows. But the event transpired just weeks after New York rapper Troy Ave made indirect threats to ILoveMakonnen on social media, after showing disapproval of his “Tuesday” remix, which he called the worst.
