Hip-hop was in full effect in Austin, Texas over the past week for the 2012 SXSW Festival, but it didn’t come without a little controversy. 2012 XXL Freshman Danny Brown was hit with a lemon during his set at the Fader Fort (see here ), singer Jeremih was booed and pelted with drinks for lip-syncing during his performance (see here ) … and A$AP Rocky dove into the crowd when the audience kept throwing things at him … all during separate events.

While performing at the Vice Kills Texas party, A$AP’s set was interrupted when someone in the crowd lobbed a full beer can onto the stage. Although A$AP warned that the show would be cut short if it continued, another objective was thrown almost immediately … and that’s when the Harlem rapper and his crew hopped into the crowd and were reportedly involved in some type of melee.

As seen in the video, things were out of control … and the venue was shut down shortly after. It’s unclear, however, if anyone was seriously injured or if any arrests were made at press time.

According to FUSE.tv, the incident wasn’t the first time A$AP Rocky and company were involved in a physical altercation at SXSW. During last year’s Fader Fort party, members of his crew reportedly jumped one of the show’s sound man. Apparently, he was unhappy with the size of the stage he was performing on, and trashed it. When a stage hand entered the stage to try to move the debris, he was assaulted … and left in an ambulance.
