Lil Wayne‘s set at Atlanta’s A3C Festival reportedly went south on Sunday night. According to reports from people who claimed to be at the show on Twitter, Weezy’s set was cut short almost immediately.
While initial reports claimed that there was a shooting, others claimed that it was merely a fight that got out of hand. What all the accounts seem to have in common is the fact that the Carter V rapper ended his set early thanks to the confusion.
A video from TMZ show someone being taken out on a stretcher:
There was no shortage of live reactions on Twitter:
