2:20 PM: The Blast has obtained exclusive video taken as the incident went down.
Sources on the scene during the fight tell The Blast the entire Migos crew showed up at Encore in a caravan of SUVs immediately following their performance at Drai’s Nightclub. We’re told as soon as the fight began, Cardi B’s security team rushed her inside the lobby of the hotel to keep her, and her unborn child, out of any danger.
Sources tell us the fight was chaotic until LVMPD showed up and restored order. Our source believes the person who was cited was not one of the stars of Migos, but possibly an entourage member.
Migos had quite a busy night in Sin City after they followed up a big performance with an even bigger melee that ended with the cops getting called to sort out a brawl.
Sources tell The Blast after Quavo, Offset and Takeoff brought down the house at Drai’s Nightclub at the Cromwell, they hit the strip for a fun night out. Unfortunately, we’re told a few of the hip-hop stars and their entourage got into an argument with a valet early Saturday morning in front of the entrance to the Encore Hotel & Casino, where the group was staying.
Sources associated with the hotel said it all started when Quavo was asked by a hotel employee to move his car. Words were allegedly exchanged between the two parties, and the valet ended up getting decked.
As of now, it’s unclear if Quavo or any other members from the group actually threw punches, but we’re told other employees from the hotel jumped in to break up the action and in-house security eventually called the police for backup after taking one suspect into custody.
Sources at the hotel tell us Quavo and his entourage were staying at the Encore while in town, and the entire group was kicked out after the fight.
Cardi B was also in Vegas with the boys and came out as a surprise performance earlier in the night. However, it’s unclear if she was also staying at the Encore or was even present when the brawl went down.
An official for the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department tells The Blast they responded to a call for assault Saturday at 4:17 AM. Cops say security took one man into custody during the fight and held him in the Encore lockup until cops arrived. We’re told he was cited and released.
The Blast reached out to Quavo, Migos and the Encore for comment.
