The man involved reportedly confused Nipsey Hussle and O.T. Genasis during the brawl.
Nipsey Hussle was recently involved in an altercation outside of a nightclub in Los Angeles. Nobody was harmed, but things got so heated during the brawl that security pulled out a taser. While Nipsey has since brushed off the incident, new information has surfaced. It turns out, O.T. Genasis may be the person responsible for dragging Neighborhood Nip into the brawl.
TMZ obtained more footage of the altercation that occurred outside of Nightingale nightclub in West Hollywood. According to the footage, O.T. Genasis confronted the man prior to the brawl. Genasis is seen getting into a fight inside of the club on Sunday right before Nipsey Hussle and Lauren London arrived. The "Bae" rapper throws a punch at the same guy who swung on Nipsey Hussle later in the evening.
There's a chance the man confused O.T. Genasis for Nipsey Hussle before swinging. Both rappers are seen wearing similar plaid shirts.
By the end of the night, things calmed down a bit after people dispersed once police showed up.
Aside from his brawl on Sunday night at Nightingale nightclub, Nipsey Hussle has much more positive things to focus on. The rapper's official studio debut, Victory Lap earned Nipsey Hussle his first Grammy nomination. The album was nominated for Best Rap Album alongside albums from Cardi B, Mac Miller, Pusha T, and Travis Scott.
