As per TMZ, the Houston, Texas native made sure to control the crowd at a performance he had last week. During the holiday weekend, he took the stage at the iconic Coney Island Park in Brooklyn, New York. During his set, some rowdy fans started climbing a lighting truss and sat atop of it to watch him perform. Naturally, this caught his attention and he promptly stopped his show and demanded they get down from there. “We need y’all to get down,” he demanded, “My brother, just make sure you’re OK.”
Later on, he made sure to address the ticketholders standing by the stage to ensure things didn’t get crazy. “Everybody right here, take two steps back,” he said. “Security, do not push them. Don’t push it. Don’t push the barricade.”
