Wilburn claims he was pushed by Bada$$ during a performance at an MTV event in September in Los Angeles. According to the suit, Wilburn said he spent $1,000 on immediate medical expenses, and may require a surgery costing $25,000. He estimates that he'll lose profits of around $50,000.

Bada$$ has been a critic of President Trump's, both in songs like "Land Of The Free" and in a recent interview with CNN. "(Trump) revealed that (racism) is still alive and well – that there's still bigots out there," he said. "He exposed the bigotry that still exists in this country even after a black president."
