Proving that R&B can be just as hazardous as other dangerous occupations — lobster fishing, say, or big game hunting — is T-Pain, whose concert in Miami last Saturday ended in a mess of cops. When the venue cut his performance short, the singer’s manager allegedly tried to storm the DJ booth, but was brought down by police. According to Allhiphop.com, “Several police officers reportedly scrambled backstage trying to cut the sound to T-Pain’s performance and they finally succeeded while the singer was in the midst of his popular song, ‘Buy You a Drank.’” Yikes.
In other police-blotter items, an after-party for Young Buck turned violent on Saturday night. Apparently the rapper invited the crowd at his show back to his hotel for a little late-night soiree. But when a fight broke out in the parking lot between Young Buck’s entourage and some other rappers, guns were fired, hotel guests were terrified and nine people were arrested. On the plus side, Akon hasn’t humped anyone lately, at least not that we’ve heard of.
