West Hollywood, CA – Nipsey Hussle was involved in a West Hollywood brawl on Sunday night (December 9) and now, it looks like the incident was simply a case of mistaken identity. According to TMZ, the fight broke out after O.T. Genasis punched a man inside the Nightingale club.
The man who confronted Nipsey thought he was targeting O.T. and came after him, along with several members of his entourage. Both Nipsey and O.T. were wearing plaid shirts and coupled with the dark aesthetic of the club, the man clearly had trouble differentiating the two.
Although police were called to the scene, no arrests were made.

Nipsey Hussle was reportedly involved in a massive brawl that broke out in West Hollywood on Sunday night (December 9). According to TMZ, Nipsey was celebrating his girlfriend’s birthday at the Nightingale club. As they were leaving, a fight exploded in the parking lot and security was allegedly forced to pull out a taser.
In video captured of the incident, the Los Angeles-bred rapper throws several punches before he eventually settles down. Police showed up to the scene but no arrests were made.
This isn’t the first altercation Nipsey has been involved in this year. In February, shots rang out at his Victory Lap album release party at World On Wheels in Los Angeles. At least one male was shot and taken to Cedar-Sinai Medical Center.
In January, Nipsey was forced to jump in the middle of a stampede at another album release party. His attempts to stop the fight proved to be unsuccessful.
