Are Hip-Hop Heads Not Safe?! NYPD Melee After Pete Rock & Smif-N-Wessun Concert

Peaceful assembly at the Pete Rock and Smif-N-Wessun concert last night at NYC’s Tammany Hall turned into an all out war between NYPD and concert goers. During the let-out, crowds of people dispersed into the streets to mingle and make their way home when police officers took it upon themselves to aggressively move things along. From the vid, it’s look like the entire unit was called to use excessive force, even brutally attacking a young man.

Watch the video below to watch how it all went down:
