Migos Sued for Inciting Riot at 2015 Concert
Migos is going from the kitchen to the court room. The “Stir Fry” trio has been sued for allegedly inciting a riot at a 2015 concert in Albany, New York, where several attendees were stabbed during a brawl.
The venue’s lawsuit indicates that Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff arrived late for the event and that they smelled like weed and alcohol. It also claims that they didn’t fulfill meet-and-greet responsibilities, according to TMZ.
Beyond the aforementioned accusations, the lawsuit alleges that the chart-topping rappers were “encouraging, cheering and inciting the patrons to fight,” and that they “caused patrons to be stabbed, robbed, beaten, severely harmed, and injured.”
A cell phone-captured video from the concert shows a frantic scene inside of the venue, where several attendees squabbled. The lawsuit says that the rappers were “laughing and egging the crowd on as metal gates were ripped from the ground and thrown into the crowd.”
Violence-related allegations have followed the group. Last year, XXXTentacion claimed that the trio jumped and stabbed him. Later, Quavo and Offset were reportedly involved in a street brawl. This year, Quavo was accused of assault and robbery, before reportedly squashing his beef with a celebrity jeweler.
