YG Promoter

Concert Riot Was Rapper's Doing

And Intentional

EXCLUSIVE

080414_yg_concert_brawl_launchRapper YG started the chaotic water bottle melee that abruptly ended his concert ... and he did it to cover up the fact that he couldn't sing.

YG lost his voice 2 songs into his performance ... that's what a rep for the promoters tell TMZ.  The promoters say the rapper first tried to get his DJ to pump up the volume to mask his voice, but when that didn't work he resorted to throwing water bottles at the crowd ... which predictably turned bad.

Apparently YG wasn't sure the bottle would do the trick, so he jumped off stage and punched a fan in the face ... and that's when all hell broke loose.

The promoter tells us the club is now in danger of losing its license.  We're told the club may take legal action against the rapper.

We reached out to YG's camp for comment ... so far, no word back.

Many of the rap concerts I have been to, the rappers always have a supply of water bottles to pour on the audience and then toss at them. I've never seen it turn violent. But then again, the rappers I saw didn't jump in the audience to punch people either. Life would have been so much more simple if they said "Hey, he lost his voice, lets reschedule this or give you a refund." There, easy.

Rapper YG is the definition of a volatile, violent man. He's a member of a dangerous Compton gang, Piru Bloods, proudly states so. Keep it up, idiot, and you will be locked up like other gang members are.

Well that's stupid. Artists postpone performances for losing their voices all the time. There was no need to start a riot.

Rappers + Alcohol + Concert/Club = Brawl/Fight Bottle/Glass slammed over someones head or thrown in their face. I would step foot in a club or concert full of rappers. Chance of injury = 100%
