A$AP Rocky went viral over the weekend after his set at Rolling Loud New York.
The Harlem rapper performed some of his best hits “Grim Freestyle,” “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2 (LPFJ2)” and the live debut of his track “Sights.”
“I am so hurt right now!” he tweeted Sunday night (Sept. 25). “Last night was supposed to be a turning point in my live show from the old to new! I will take full responsibility for the circumstances of what led to last nights show being everything that is was and everything it wasn’t.”
He added: “I also want to acknowledge that even tho I prepared the best show for my fans, detail for detail, over the course of MONTHS. I was unfortunately not able to bring my vision to fruition and Im hurt about that and I want to apologize to all of my fans and continued supporters, thank you all for showing up for me regardless.”
Although the rapper was disappointed in the outcome of his performance and how it ended early, the rapper went viral for giving his fans an unforgettable experience when he decided to jump off the stage and dive into the mosh pit.
His concerned face — after probably realizing it wasn’t the best idea–instantly became a meme. Tyler, The Creator, who is known for his trolling, put Rocky’s face on a cake.

However, Rocky had a different reaction than his fans on the Internet. He commented on a viral photo of himself in the mosh pit, letting it be known that it wasn’t as amusing as it seemed. “That s— not funny,” he wrote. “Sum lil bit was squeezing the life out my n—, b.”
Moments before taking to the Rolling Loud stage in Queens, Rocky took to his Instagram stories to reveal that this will be his final live performance until his next album drops, per Hypebeast. His upcoming LP does not have a release date at this time.
