This year's Yams Day concert came to an abrupt end on Thursday night when a fight broke out during A$AP Rocky's headline set. NYPD confirmed to NY Daily News that a "crowd control situation" was the reason for the January 18 show ending. There are currently no reports of any injuries.
Social media footage shows a fight which broke out backstage. There were also rumors of gunshots but those have been denied by the NYPD.
