"As 1/2 of Rae Sremmurd, he was due to perform on Coachella’s Outdoor Theatre stage at 5:55 PM. Security claimed not to recognize the talent and then aggressively initiated contact as they attempted to make their way to the stage. The security guards, which we presume are independent contractors, are seen clearly being the aggressors and then throwing gang signs at end of the video in a celebration."XXL has reached out to Rae Sremmurd's team and Coachella for comment.Rae Sremmurd is fresh off releasing their latest album Sremm 4 Life.
