Rap fans can be a rough crowd??
Im about to end this mans whole career.
I am not a rapper.
Boom bam bop badabap boom pow!
Now THAT’s a tough audience!
The only “book signing” I want for these thugs is the one on their “booking charge” form.
NYC - run by a commie; wrecked by his supporters.
Visit the “Rotten Apple” and get sprayed in the face, pushed off a subway platform, shot in an Uber car, or just robbed on the streets like everybody else.

Rap usually equals lawbreaking and senseless violence.
Not always, but much of the time.
It’s what they sing about and romanticize.
A good example of becoming what you think about.
Says exactly everything you always wanted to know about rap.
This was to be expected
If I wrote insurance for a mall, I would have a clause cancelling the insurance if they even thought of holding a rap-oriented event.
When signings spiral, malls erupt.
I guess the solution is the ban signature spiraling.
Amazing how the media writes these stories where no PERSON did anything.
I wonder how they will blame this on a MAGA wearing white boy from MAGA Country?
I hardly ever go to that mall any more. For one, I hate paying for parking. For another, there are scads of marauding teens wandering the mall, even during school hours when they’re supposed to be in school. A great many of the stores cater to teens, selling trashy looking clothing and cheap accessories. Now it’s obvious that one cannot feel safe at that mall, so why visit?
You never see violence associated with rap.
Must be Russian Collusion(tm) or something.
Some folks really know how to have a good time.
I have been in that mall a couple of times. The Kings Plaza in Marine Park is better.
You never hear of these things happening at classical music events...
I also never hear of them happening at Amazon.
