Lil Uzi Vert nearly gets into a fight at the Day N Night Festival. Though it hasn't been confirmed, many are speculating that his target was Reese LaFlare.
Last weekend, while backstage at the Day N Night Festival in Orange County, CA, Lil Uzi Vert lost his cool amid a chance encounter with someone whom he clearly has beef with. A video has surfaced of Uzi attempting to break free of security and approach a foe who can't quite be definitively pointed out. Rumors, and publications like Complex, are claiming that Uzi was trying to get at Atlanta rapper Reese LaFlare, who was also a performer at the festival.
A conflict between Reese and Uzi was revealed at the end of April when OG Maco, during a Twitter rant, suggested that Uzi had borrowed elements of his "rock star" style. When OG Maco included Reese in the discussion, Uzi responded by calling the latter ATL rapper a "clown" whom he had apparently "punched on already." That prompted Reese to start clapping at Uzi, and he went on a Twitter tirade of his own, claiming that he was responsible for putting Uzi on in the first place.
In the below video, Uzi has his gaze directed to someone (perhaps Reese) in a nearby cluster of people while security attempts to restrain him. He can be heard yelling, "You a f*ggot. You a bitch ass n*gga." At one point, he scampers away and runs toward his presumed target, though security catches up to him before any physical confrontation can be made.

As the footage of Uzi's outburst has begun to make headlines, Reese has gone on Twitter to say, "I'm not even in that video." Still, he did take a moment to clown Uzi's backstage behavior, tweeting, "A n*gga who REALLY got problems is NOT finna do all that yelling and running in circles.... Shit look good for the camera tho."
