NLE Choppa is speaking out after a brawl at the beach.
Over the weekend, video surfaced of Choppa getting into a physical altercation with an unidentified man at Venice Beach in California. The man approaches Choppa and his crew on a bike before a verbal argument ensues. Choppa swings at him and the man swings back, landing a blow to his face. But the man was outnumbered by Choppa and his crew, who attack him, eventually knocking him to the floor before Choppa and friends walk away.
After the video went viral, the Memphis rapper took to Twitter on Monday to address the scuffle, which reportedly started after the man asked for a picture. When he said no, Choppa claimed that the man insulted him.
“Damn y’all never got hit in a fight before?” he tweeted. “bruh asked for picture I said no I’m enjoying my self and I get called scary and a bitch. I make sure I take pictures with every fan but some days I just be trying to chill and get disrespected in the process.”
He insists he didn’t want any problems, while defending himself against those who said he lost the fight. “And I eat punches ask bout me. Imma rush you take what you got to give and resume beating some. Honestly ain’t wanna fight I was just tryna walk the beach.”

In late March, Choppa was arrested on burglary, drugs, and weapon charges. After his release from jail on $4,500 bond, he claimed that he was framed. “During this arrest I was setup, substances were planted on me that I don’t consume/use/own, my name was lied upon, and I was even mistreated in the process,” he tweeted.
On Friday, Choppa released his new single “Final Warning” on which he takes aim at the police for trying to lock him up.
