Rappers Are in Danger: Addressing Safety in Hip-Hop
I woke up this morning to see a video in my youtube feed about the rapper Plies getting slammed off the stage at a show. During an on-stage confrontation, a guy grabbed him by the waist and slammed him off the six-foot stage and onto the floor. This happened in front of hundreds (maybe thousands) of people. We tend to laugh when it’s a commercial artist like Plies, but even well-respected artists aren’t exempt.
