Continuing the recent theme of onstage interference at music gigs, Swae Lee was hit in the face by a flying phone at a Rae Sremmurd show last night (August 26), resulting in him apparently losing a tooth and needing stitches.
The rapper/singer was performing “Powerglide” in Dallas when he was hit and reportedly waited to finish the song before addressing his bleeding mouth. When the song was done, though, Lee ranted at the person that had thrown the phone, holding it in his hand and showing the crowd his injury.
Slim Jxmmi, the other half of Rae Sremmurd, tried to calm Lee down and pull him away as he read out the name of the fan – who presumably wanted a selfie – and threatened to sue.
"My lip is fucked up this dumb ass girl through her phone on stage like a baseball,” he later tweeted. “Y’all gotta have more common sense than that my shit is fucked might miss a few days of tour."
Lee seems alright now, though, in an update tweet he wrote: “Just got stitches in my lip and bought some finding Neeemo bandades and Star Wars bandades the tour continues.” He’s since clarified that the injury won’t affect the “Dazed and Blazed” tour, which sees Rae Sremmurd supporting headliner Wiz Khalifa.
