Lil B was supposed to have a joyful homecoming performance today (Oct. 21) at the Rolling Loud Festival in Mountain View, CA. Growing up in Berkeley, CA, less than an hour from the Shoreline Amphitheater, The BasedGod showed up in a suit and dress shoes ready to rock. He would get onstage this afternoon but, unfortunately, for him and his fans, no music would be performed.
According to B and several witnesses, The BasedGod was jumped by A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie's crew. Boogie had just been performing on one of the Rolling Loud stages and Lil B who was going on next waited backstage. A fracas ensued soon after B and Boogie crossed paths. You could actually see some of Lil B's dreads laying on the ground in the aftermath.
"I said something about Boogie music and they all got mad and they jumped me," B said soon after his altercation while standing onstage in front of the audience. He also claimed that Boogie's crew took his computer with the music from the show and he couldn't perform. B, however, displayed no ill will towards the Bronx hitmaker.
"I love them and I love y'all," B said onstage. "God is good. I'm alive. We all alive!"
Surprisingly, B, who has a long gash on his nose, was walking backstage in the artist and production area, hours later. He spoke exclusively to REVOLT TV about his wild Saturday afternoon.
"There are some folks that are representing the culture that need to kick back," B lamented. "They don't have to be all violent. It don't have to be like that. It ain't about that."
More shocking, The BasedGod said he has love in his heart for A Boogie and would even be open for a collaboration.
"It's all good. I send love and respect to them. If they wanna work, do something, we can chop it up and come as men and take a handshake," B offered. "I looked everybody in their face as men. I'm a man. I got respect and honor. I think that's what it's about. Not being revengeful. I'm hurt. I'm not feeling like I need to hurt them or they need to be hurt because of it, I'm cool. And they're cool. But I think what they should take from this is not be so violent and negative because they're in a good situation. Don't mess that up with negativity and violence."
Back in September, Lil B wrote on Twitter that some New York artists sound like Future and Dej Loaf.
A Boogie was unable to be reached for comment.
