Rapper Soulja Boy was forced to abandon a gig in Washington, D.C. on Saturday when police shut down the event after fights broke out in the crowd.
The Crank That (Soulja Boy) hitmaker was due to perform at the Ibiza nightclub, but a mix-up over money halted his performance.

And after a series of bust-ups at the door, cops descended on the venue and ordered organisers to axe the show.

In a series of posts on his page, the rapper writes, “I’m so sorry to disappoint my DC fans but the promoters did not have all the money. I still tried to perform but I couldn’t even get inside!

“I tried to perform for free! But it was (sic) so many fights at the side door that the police shut it down! My apologies I will be back!”
