Lil B says that A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie “jumped” him at the Rolling Loud Music Festival on Saturday (Oct. 21). PnB Rock has also allegedly been implicated in the incident, which took place at the Shoreline Festival Grounds in Mountain View, Calif.
Instead of performing his scheduled set, The Based God took to the stage to explain the circumstances behind his cancellation. “A Boogie and his whole crew just jumped be in the back,” he said. “They beat me up in the back. That shit crazy. It’s all love. I don’t promote violence…So, I love them and it’s all good. I said something about Boogie music, and they all got mad, and they jumped me about that, so it’s all good. I’m still here.” He added: “They stole my shit and everything, so I can’t even do my show.”
Vowing not to retaliate, Lil B confirmed that new material was on the way and that he would receive medical attention. “New Lil B music soon,” he said. “About to hit this doctor, make sure I’m good. These ni**as fucked me up.”

Videos of the altercation show that B was, indeed, attacked by multiple men at the event. The group of individuals stomped on B, while the rapper was on the floor. Once they let up, he stood up, and the group dispersed. PnB Rock is seen in videos, but he was not named by Lil B and the full extent of his involvement is unclear. Yesterday, A Boogie shared a photo of himself and PnB onstage together. His Instagram caption reads: “Oh that’s my dawg.”

Many, including Royce 5’9″, who asked people to “quit beating up Lil B,” voiced concerns for Based God after the news surfaced online. Travis Scott took to the stage to announce his support: “Protect Lil B at all costs, motherfucker!”
Yesterday, A Boogie also released “Day 1,” a new song about loyalty. “They don’t want to see me winning,” he raps. “They so fake and so jealous.” The song follows his debut album, The Bigger Artist, which opened at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
