The A3C Festival took place this weekend at the Georgia Freight Depot in Atlanta, Georgia. The huge hip-hop event featured Wu-Tang Clan and Lil Wayne as the festival’s headliners.
Wayne’s latest album The Carter V just earned its top spot on Billboard and concertgoers were all ready to celebrate this amazing victory, after waiting for a really long time for new music from him.
Wayne took the stage and performed a handful of songs before something happened. His set was cut short.
It’s not clear yet what caused the chaos, but according to reports screams were heard in the crowd and Wayne was rushed off the stage immediately by security.
The crowds were rushing as well and some reports even claim that there have been gunshots heard.
There was a lot of chaos and authorities have called for an evacuation. What caused all this madness is still not known at the moment.
Lil Wayne posted on Twitter as soon as he was safe.
Hope everyone at A3C is safe!! ??
