Richmond, VA (WRVA) - Instagram and the Rap community abuzz over what happened during a show at Richmond’s Broad Street venue “The National” last night (9/21/18).

 Video seems to show the shirtless rapper “NBA Youngboy”, real name is Kentrell DeSean Gaulden, going into the crowd and getting into a physical altercation with a fan. At least one member of Gaulden’s entourage can be seen helping the rapper do battle with a patron.

Punches were thrown as the crowd swirled around the fight. Richmond’s finest showed up to help security disperse the crowd.

A Captain with the Richmond Police Department says officers responded to find a large crowd. There were no reports of injury and no arrests were made.

Gaulden brags that he is no stranger to the criminal justice system.
