SOBs went up last night for sure.
The Source was in attendance last night at the legendary SOBs for the CMJ showcase with acts Rae Sremmurd, Audio Push, Father and iLOVEMAKONNEN. What we weren’t there for was the conflict that occured while Makonnen performed his popular track “Tuesday”.
Makonnen appeared on stage with Rae Sremmurd and the rest of their entourage towards the end of the show to perform his hit single. As seen in the video, while Makonnen sang the chorus an unidentified man called out to him, and as he bent down to show the “fan” some love the man began punching Makonnen, bringing him down to the floor of the stage.
Makonnen’s security quickly intervened, and as quick as it started the artist proceeded to make SOBS go “up,” stating he has “no time for the haters.” Watch the clip above.
As far as the rest of the show, SOBS definitely went up Tuesday night. Chicago emcee Dreezy repped for the ladies, delivering fire bars while introducing us to new tracks, but it was the guys who truly held it down in the legendary venue.
Father and Key! came on stage with their entire entourage and then some. With their humorous “background dancers” providing us with nonstop laughs, you couldn’t help but to turn up with them, too. Then appeared Makonnen, complete with a Puff Daddy-inspired shiny jacket, performing “Wrist” to a crowd who recited every line back to him and the other artists. The night grew long and before we all knew it, it was nearing early morning. Where were the Ear Drummers?!
Before we had time to really think about it, Rae Sremmurd ran on stage and proceeded to give us the performance of a lifetime. Performing bass-induced hits such as “No Flex Zone” and “No Type,” the two Atlanta rappers truly shut SOBs down.
Add in a mini-brawl, a full bar and die-hard Atlanta music fans, and it was an awesome night. Just next time, no sneak attacks.
