Riot Brakes out During Mos Def, Pharcyde Concert

A crowd nearly turned violent during the Take Back Labor Day concert on Harriet Island, MN. The event was originally a festival to celebrate worker's achievements and to promote a New Vision for the 21st Century. Mos Def and Pharcyde were also expected to perform however Employees of the International Union officials eventually had to come out and try and calm the crowd down. Once that did not work, the local police had no choice but to shut things down. Police directed the crowd to a different bridge, but ended up arresting 284 arrests, with 130 people booked on felony charges, 51 on gross misdemeanors and 103 for misdemeanors.

This concert was not disrupted inside everyone performed without incident, and it was an amazing calm peaceful event, professionally run. My understanding was the things you are talking about took place OUTSIDE and across the river. Responsible journalism is a very important aspect of media press coverage. It would be best to get your fact straight before connecting Artist's and their performance and careers to such slander.

Straight Up T.T! Autumn Jones is, without a doubt, the life-blood of Your Black Hip-Hop. "BROKLYNGRL" is of course, out of touch with reality.
