Rapper XXXTentacion was assaulted in the middle of a performance in his hometown of San Diego on Wednesday.

The 19-year-old hip-hop artist was in mid-performance when he was sucker punched and knocked unconscious, sparking an all-out melee on stage, according to XXL Magazine.

XXXTentacion responded to the assault on Twitter: “Security and venue set me up, I got sucker punched and knocked out, it is what it is.”

The rapper was in the midst of a feud with fellow performer Rob Stone, who had earlier this year earlier attacked XXXTentacion’s friend and fellow rapper Ski Mask the Slump God during a show.

Although the attacker hasn’t been identified, the rapper said in a Twitter post early Thursday morning that the perpetrator may have suffered “several stab wounds” and that “he might be dead in a few hours … JUST SAYIN.”

Footage of the attack shows security tackling the suspect who had just sucker punched and knocked out XXXTentacion.

Security personnel is then seen carrying unconscious rapper off stage.

The performer also has off-stage problems. He is currently facing jail time after pleading not guilty for allegedly assaulting his pregnant girlfriend and attempting to bribe her not to testify against him during his upcoiming trial.
