Roddy Ricch Claims London Cops Want Him Banned After Concert Stabbings
As you were likely able to deduce by Roddy Ricch’s integration into the UK hip-hop fold through effective cross-collaboration, the Dreamchaser signee is up and about overseas. Unfortunately, as the BBC reported this morning, a concert that he headlined in London ended in malaise, with three men believed to be in their 20s, rushed to a nearby hospital after suffering knife wounds during the evening’s festivities.
As of this writing, no arrests have been made, and Roddy Ricch is not being held responsible for the stabbing attack that occurred whilst the concert took place at Electric Brixton in London. Footage circulating online depicts several members of the crowd getting into some kind of skirmish. You can see one person raise his bloodied arm, although it’s unclear whether the blood comes from a gash on his arm or another person in close proximity. The men who sought treatment have since been discharged from the hospital.
Roddy Ricch issued his lone public response regarding the incident via Twitter. In the post, the Compton-native claims that authorities are already taking steps to ban the singer from returning to London in any capacity. It should be noted that London Metropolitan Police agents have been engaged in a censorship battle against hip-hop artists and promoters for some time now.
