A video of Chicago rapper Lil Reese assaulting a young woman has found its way online, Billboard reports. The video in question allegedly shows the musician attacking the individual at a house party. Some websites have reported that the victim is actually his baby’s mother.
The video shows Lil Reese engaging in some violent behavior with a young woman. Although the clip starts out as a verbal altercation, it soon escalates into a full-on brawl. The man shown in the video punches the woman several times before she hits the ground. Once on the floor, the guy continues to stomp and kick the girl while others stand around and watch.
Lil Reese has admitted to assaulting the woman in the video, though he explains that the incident took place years ago. According to MTV News, the rapper feels that “haters” are responsible for attempting to tear him down by posting something horrible from his past.
“The haters tryna see a mf Dwn lol Dey gotta b broke and bored wanna upload sum s**t from years ago damnn we winnin it’s 2 late…#3hunna,” he wrote in a recent Twitter post. “Dis wat doin betta den da next mf bring small s**t it’s nothin time 2 turn Uppp f**k it…#3hunna.”
The folks at SOHH explain that many bloggers believe the woman being assaulted by Lil Reese in the video is none other than his baby’s mother. “Boy, don’t push me, and if you want that, you can get that,” she says to the rapper as things begin to get physical. “But … keep your hands to yourself though.”
Not surprisingly, the video has caused quite a bit of outrage on the internet. Since the rapper has not apologized for the incident, many folks have been quick to criticize his actions.
“Lil Reese is a disgusting excuse for a human being. He’s clearly a chronic abuser. He beat that girl in front of everyone as if it were normal to do so,” one Billboard reader wrote.
