Photos that surfaced of the musician giving his performance at Town Ballroom seemingly confirm that he’d recently been roughed up. Freddie took to the stage wearing a ski-mask that only slightly disguised his puffed up eyes.

Apparently, the beef began after Benny The Butcher was asked about his previous collaborations with Freddie. During the interview Benny, who has two collab records with Freddie, responded:
“[it] came and went”
The “Built For This” rapper subsequently took to his social media stating:
“Just keep my name out y’all mouth when y’all talking to people or doing interviews”
Though Benny nor Freddie have publicly commented about the altercation, Freddie did address the alleged stolen chain. In a twitter video verbally datemarked after the incident, Freddie shows the supposed stolen chains, denying they were taken stating:
“Produce the stolen rabbit. Produce the stolen jewelry that you say that you got n****a”
