GloRilla has had an undeniably quick rise to the top over the past few years. There have been plenty of big moments to celebrate in that time. Still, the 23-year-old has also endured her share of tough lessons. The most recent one took place earlier this week when an angry Oakland crowd seemingly threw water toward the rap diva after she failed to perform for them.

As per TMZ, the "F.N.F." hitmaker was in the Bay Area on Wednesday (February 8), visiting New Karibbean City nightclub. As Glo and her team made their way toward the venue's door, a video shows a drink soaking her jacket, immediately causing tensions to rise. "F*ck you bitch," someone else yells toward the Memphis native. This consequently saw a drink thrown their way from the artist's team.

Con B, a local promoter, has shared his side of the story. He claims that he paid GloRilla's label, CMG, $30K to have her perform at the club. In his explanation video, @conbmusic made it known that he's expecting a full refund. Prior to the event, he promised on his Instagram Story, "she will be performing live... Not hosting, not a walkthrough. She will be performing live in Oakland, CA, TONIGHT!!"

In the hours since Con spoke his truth, Yo Gotti has come out refuting those claims with some of his own. "$30K to perform," he wrote on Instagram alongside a row of crying-laughing emojis. "[You] must [have] booked Lil Glo, NOT Big Glo #CMG." Additionally, the "FTCU" hitmaker herself got some things off her chest over on Twitter.

"Ain't no ho spit on shit!!!!!!" GloRilla wrote after the video began going viral. "Ask dat ho how ha face feel doe. No way you think I'm performing when you paid for a hosting, crazy tail self." According to TMZ, only a few rowdy patrons were upset that she didn't take the stage, otherwise, the environment was fun.

The southern rapstress is currently on tour following the arrival of her debut EP last year. She took to the stage in San Francisco earlier on Wednesday night, which likely explains her reluctance to put on another performance.
