Future was accosted by a man in Chicago during an appearance at a high-end apparel and sneaker boutique and his crew reacted swiftly, apparently on camera, and the footage was posted on Musicdramatv Radio’s YouTube page.
Men alleged to be members of the hip-hop star’s Freebandz crew beat down an as of yet unnamed individual after the man approached the rapper. Varying reports have surfaced regarding what exactly happened; some outlets are alleging that the man either spit on the rapper or brandished what some are claiming was a knife. Video footage captured the brawl outside RSVP Gallery in Chicago.
VladTV reported the incident as simply a reaction to a heckler.
“According to sources the fight occurred after hecklers shouted remarks about Future’s ex-girlfriend Ciara during his store appearance. Video footage above shows the EVOL rapper walking into the space, and cuts directly to several alleged members of FBG jumping a guy from the crowd.”
So far, no official statements have surfaced either from any law enforcement agency or Future’s camp.
Future and Ciara have been enduring a bitter back and forth, sparring via social media, interviews and now, in courts of law over their son, Future Zahir.
After the incident at RSVP, the star was seemingly basking in positive vibes during his time in the Windy City on his “Purple Reign” Tour; he was posting pics on Instagram with captions like “I can never forget it” following his show at the Aragon Ballroom Thursday night (Feb. 18.)
