“You can see my face. There was no beat down. It was none of that. It was a jump, but it wasn’t a jump,” stated Kingston.
According to Kingston, nine people – including members of the Migos – approached him and three other people after leaving the Sands Expo and Convention Center.
“We went out there thinking we were going to have a conversation,” Kingston added. “They FaceTimed me, ‘Yo, come outside let’s talk like men. I miss you. Let’s chalk it up.'”
He continued, “As soon as I went outside it was no talking. They just started jumping on me and throwing punches. I didn’t have a chance to put my set up. I didn’t have a chance to do nothing.”
Kingston claimed he does not know the actual reason Migos’ entourage supposedly attacked him, but he mentioned his association with Soulja Boy.
“I’m hearing different stories,” added the “Beat It” performer. “I’m hearing it has something to do with Soulja Boy. He was at my house. I said something in a video they didn’t like.”
Kingston’s friend Moses “Bo-Jack” Johnson reportedly fired at least one shot into the air in order to get the attackers to stop the assault.
He is facing multiple charges including assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a concealed weapon without a permit.
