Texas Club Owner Bans All Rap Concerts After Webbie Brawl

By Kevin Rutherford

A concert for rapper Webbie in Texas over the weekend got brutal when a fight broke out, soon turning into an all-out brawl that has reportedly caused the venue owner to reconsider hosting hip-hop concerts at all.

TMZ broke news of the incident yesterday (Aug. 12), with an accompanying video supporting the described scene at Club 20/20 at the 20/20 Salon Event Center in Odessa, Texas. The rapper is seen performing when police cuts him off due to a fight taking place in the crowd. The lights come on and everything really breaks loose, with bar stools and other projectiles chucked across the large room.

According to local CBS affiliate CBS 7, a single felony arrest was made at the concert, with 32-year-old Terrance Hughes getting arrested for public intoxication and having ecstasy on his person.

The owner of 20/20 has reportedly banned all hip-hop shows at the venue following the incident. “”We will not have any hip hop-rap shows here at Club 20/20 anymore,” the owner noted to CBS 7 in a prepared statement.

It’s not the first time a Webbie concert has ended in violence. In 2011, a security guard was shot at a show in East St. Louis, while a woman was shot in the head in 2008 in Louisiana.
