The rap trio is now facing legal trouble.
Migos were hit with two new lawsuits on Monday that claim the Atlanta rap group was responsible for inciting a brawl at a 2015 concert in Albany, New York.
According to a report in The-Alt , the suit was filed by the owners of Albany venue The Armory, and alleged that concertgoers were “stabbed, robbed, beaten, severely harmed, and injured” after the incident. The Armory owners also claimed Migos “were seen laughing and egging the crowd on.” The suit also alleges the rappers failed to appear at a pre-show meet-and-greet and delayed the show for hours, which caused the crowd to become “agitated.”
Footage obtained by TMZ concert attendees that night throwing objects and a metal gate around. At the time, six people were reported injured.
The concert venue, Albany Basketball & Sports Corporation filed a lawsuit claiming they experienced legal trouble with the city following the show, and lost their liquor license. In the lawsuit, they claim they dealt with negative press and show cancellations following Migos’ appearance. They also say they were forced to reimburse concertgoers who paid extra for the meet-and-greet portion of the show, which Migos missed.
“The unwarranted negative media attention and subsequent government actions against the Armory stemming from the event has placed an undue burden upon the Armory’s operations and its ability to attract programming,” a spokesperson for The Armory said in a statement. “Therefore, on the eve of the three year anniversary of that fateful concert, the Armory is taking this important action to remedy the losses incurred from and arising from that event.”
One of the concert attendees Sharome Ross is suing Migos and the venue for injuries he obtained during the show. In the suit, Ross claims he suffered “serious permanent personal injuries…caused solely by reason of the negligence of the defendants.”
Migos has not publicly responded to the lawsuits.
