Watch Joey Bada$$ Fight Suspect Cameraman Outside Kanye’s Fashion Show
Joey Bada$$ is not here for the games. That’s the lesson a suspect cameraman learned on Thursday night after he hit the rapper in the head with a microphone. Bada$$ was exiting Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3 unveiling at Madison Square Garden when the squabble occurred.
In a video posted on YouTube, you can hear a confused photographer yelling “A$AP” at Joey, clearly confusing the artist for A$AP Rocky. The Brooklyn emcee doesn’t seem too bothered by the mistake, responding by jokingly saying, “Get out of here with that. I’ll smack the sh*t out of you.” A second later, the cameraman hits the rapper in the head with the mic kicking off a scuffle right in front of the police.
The photog filed a harassment complaint against the rapper but at the :26 second mark of the video, an officer breaking up the fight clearly tells the aggressive paparazzo, “You hit him first.” That being said, it doesn’t look like any arrests will be made following the scuffle.
