The Governor’s Ball festival got underway this afternoon in New York, and there’s already been a casualty. Slim Jimmy, half of the Mississippi rap duo Rae Sremmurd, fell off a speaker and into the crowd 10 minutes into the group’s set, as Billboard points out. His brother and bandmate Swae Lee cut short the song they were performing, reporting to the crowd that Jimmy’s leg was “split open” and that he was “hurt real bad.” A moment later, Jimmy got on the mic and said, “I got a big ass piece of glass in my leg, so if you got that video, put that shit on Instagram,” before leaving the show in an ambulance while Swae Lee finished the set solo. Sure enough, video of Jimmy being helped offstage has appeared on Instagram:
Stay safe at Governor’s Ball, everyone. Don’t anybody else fall off a speaker.
