Concert-goers in the Bronx were enjoying a Hip Hop concert when a violent brawl broke out backstage. The tribute concert in the Bronx Thursday night was shut down after the fight broke out.

The concert was a tribute to the late rapper A$AP Yams at the New York Expo Center and his mother spoke in his memory at the beginning of the tribute. Unfortunately, the touching tribute ended when a fight broke out during the concert.

Witnesses said several groups of young men armed with bats and pipes were fighting around 10:30 p.m.

Videos of the chaos quickly circulated on social media showing concert goers fleeing from the Expo Center. In the middle of his set, rapper A$AP Rocky was asked to get off the stage by security guards because of an apparent security issue.

The fight grew so out of control that the entire concert was canceled, some even reported hearing gunshots. Police said they didn't believe there was any gunfire after they were called in for crowd control.
