When attending a live Gucci Mane performance, here’s a pro tip based on recent video evidence: don’ try and hug him while he’s in the middle of a song. While on stage at the Real Dub Show in Anaheim, California recently, Gucci made sure one of his fans found out this fact the hard way.
In a video posted to Real 92.3’s official Instagram account, the Droptopwop rapper is seen performing his hit collaboration with Rae Sremmurd, “Black Beatles.” However, all of a sudden, a female fan jumps up and tries to run up and hug the emcee. Gucci was clearly not down with the move, using his arms to distance himself from the fan before a couple of security personnel grabbed hold of her and returned her to her spot in the crowd. It’s a situation that always carries the possibility of danger for the performer, but thankfully no physical injuries were sustained.
The radio station’s event also featured another bit of impromptu crowd interaction on the stage, but this one was actually a demonstration of goodwill. O.T. Genasis put the brakes on his performance when he noticed a fan was dehydrated. Security removed her from the crowd and slowly walked her to a safe area where she could recuperate, with the rapper making sure she was okay on her way out. There’s no word on if she felt the affects of her condition after she was escorted out, but at least she didn’t become unconscious in the middle of a sea of other concertgoers.
