Tupac

Tupac was known for his candid tongue and provocative lyrics. At a MECCA arena concert in Milwaukee back in 1994 Pac got a little too carefree with his words inciting a riot which caused promoters to drop him. Pac allegedly sparked conflict with "fight words," and fans began to throw cups on stage, shove, and more; forcing the concert to end early. Afterwards, the aggravated concertgoers stormed the hotel Tupac was staying at, leaving three injured and two arrested. Promoters blamed the rapper for the mayhem and promptly discontinued their relationship him before his next show.
