New Orleans singer August Alsina lived up to his reputation on Saturday after footage was released of him and his crew beating down a concert promoter in St. Louis. While being backstage at the Chaifetz Arena, August got into a confrontation with the show’s promoter named Loose Cannon Slim.

Tension began due to August’s late arrival at the “State of Emergency 2” tour, Slim and the 22-year-old singer exchanged words on camera. Security tried to handle the situation but before that punches were thrown and someone in August’s crew kicked Slim in the face before security pulled everyone apart.

Earlier today, sources were reporting that the August Alsina fight was a result of him not wanting to get on stage before hip-hop group Migos, because he feels like he is better than the “Versace” rappers, but that was proven to be false.

According to Bossip, new evidence surfaced about the promoter’s lack of payment:

“The rumor about [August] not wanting to go on before Migos is completely false. August had no issue going on before Migos. He was scheduled to go on after them but because he had a band, he went on first with no problem. The issue at hand is bad business.

A tactic of many bad promoters is to wait until the last minute to pay the artist, taking money off of the door rather than paying them when they arrive in town. When this happens, you end up paying the artist late, which makes the show run late.

In the footage Fabolous can be seen watching the altercation from his dressing room.
