Things got a little violent at a " Stop the Violence" concert featuring KRS-One recently when someone in the crowd threw a bottle on stage, hitting the rapper in the face and hand.
The rap legend was performing at a nightclub in New Haven, CT when a concert-goer became upset with security staff who had escorted him off stage and tossed the bottle in reaction.
KRS-One kept a level head, telling the crowd at Toad’s Place nightclub: "Let it go. Let it go. When negativity comes your way, let it go. …Let this be an example as to how we stop the violence."
After his right hand swelled up and became painful during the last 15 minutes of his set, the rapper was rushed by ambulance to Yale-New Haven hospital and treated for a fractured hand and dehydration. Doctors urged the artist to postpone all previously scheduled appearances until he recovers from both ailments.
The old school rapper has requested that the fan not be charged for the assault. However, KRS-One’s management team and the staff of the nightclub advised him to have the fan arrested for legal purposes related to the postponements.
