Rapper Kirko Bangz had a rough weekend in New Mexico after he reportedly said something disrespectful about the neighborhood where he was scheduled to perform. Witnesses say Kirko was hit in the head with a bottle inside the La Sierra nightclub. Making the matter even worse is that the assault happened on Saturday night, Kirko’s birthday.
One person posted video of the incident on her social media. While you can’t see Kirko getting hit with the bottle in the clip, you can see him holding a towel to his head, where we assume he was injured.

Folks on Twitter claim the beatdown stemmed from the artist running his mouth about local Hobb artist.
So I heard Kirko Bangz talked down on Hobbs and got punched last night on his birthday smh

I used to look up to @KirkoBangz so much when I was younger but when he talked about those local artists in Hobbs, he deserved what he got.💯

There’s also chatter on social media that Kirko was robbed for his chain, but that has yet to be confirmed.
