Music and mischief seemingly go hand in hand these days and in the eyes of the EarHustle411 team, wrongdoing is all the same regardless of the different settings. Legendary rock group Gun N’ Roses performed at the MetLife Stadium on Saturday July 23rd and it appears that there was a bit of “mischief” going on at the venue. According to reports at least 30 people were arrested for various offenses from simple assault, resisting arrest to possession of marijuana. One has to think how this “mischief” would have played out if this event were a hip hop concert, the interactions would have been quite different and probably blown out of proportion. These people were just “having fun” at this event and it this were a Young Jeezy, NWA or Snoop Dogg concert, the people would be classified as thugs or worse.
Hmmmpf…guess that’s the difference between Rock and Roll and Hip Hop, it’s all very “black and white”
