Headliner 2 Chainz was performing his track “No Lie” when he brought collaborator Drake out as a special guest during HU’s International YardFest concert in D.C.

Pandemonium ensued as the crowd pushed forward, resulting in photographers and concert-goers being shoved into barricades and leaving several students with minor injuries. [See videos below.]

The rappers were forced to stop their set and plead with crowd members to step back while guards helped crushed fans over the barriers and to safety.

Other artists who performed at the annual YardFest show included T.I., Pusha T and Meek Mill.
