At around 3.30 this morning (CDT), A$AP Rocky and his Mob ended their final SXSW show by coming off the stage to fight with their angry, drunk audience members.
According to Spinner , the rapper and his exhausted crew got irate during their set at the Vice party when audience members began throwing beer onto the stage. Rocky apparently tried to defuse the situation, but ended up launching himself into the crowd to tackle the issue with his fists.
Security members stepped in to clear the room and separate the A$AP crew from the aggravated audience, until the police were called to shut the party down.
This is the second year in a row that SXSW has ended with a bout of violence, as some DFA1979 fans got a bit rowdy last year when they were stopped from entering the rock duo’s show.
