Today’s Daily Hip-Hop News Round-Up starts off on an interesting note. Rae Sremmurd, popular Hip-Hop duo with hits under their belt such as “Black Beatles”, “Come Get Her”, and “No Type”, are being sued for assault, battery, and negligence by a fan who attended one of their shows in October 2016. He accused the pair of “recklessly throwing bottled water,” which hit him in the nose and sent him straight to the emergency room, requiring stitches. The fan is from Michigan, and claims he suffered, “permanent scarring and disfigurement,” due to Swae Lee and Slim Jxmmi’s actions. They’re being asked to cover the medical expenses as well as an undisclosed amount for damages in general. We wish a speedy recovery to the injured fan.
