Since his Breakfast Club controversy with R&B singer K. Michelle and social media-centric involvement in The Game and Meek Mill’s beef, Brooklyn rap star Maino has kept his name under wraps as of late.
Unfortunately, it’s unraveling back on headlines for the worse after reports have emerged claiming he gave a woman a mouthful — literally — in the lobby of a Miami hotel.
As reported by The Shade Room, the encounter took place at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel sometime over the weekend. Maino allegedly spit on the woman as they were engaged in a verbal altercation, though no details of what led to the exchange have been reported. Video footage shows the unidentified woman attempting to swing at Maino before being blocked by someone standing near him as the If Tomorrow Comes emcee mockingly laughs at her.
A second clip shows the altercation ensuing while a different man grabs Maino away, preventing the two from getting too close to each other. Some who have seen the footage thus far still have choice words for the Brooklyn emcee, however.

I like Maino but you know how TRASH you gotta be to spit on someone?????— CaroLYIN (@Andrea_Michele) August 20, 2017
As of now, neither Maino nor any of his representatives have yet to respond to the incident. Let's hope he has some sort of explanation for the reports if he does.
See the video of the exchange below.
