During their set at Governors Ball in New York City this afternoon, Rae Sremmurd‘s Slim Jimmy fell offstage and injured his leg. According to Billboard, the hip-hop duo was performing their song “Unlock The Swag” when Slim Jimmy tumbled off a speaker in front of the crowd. The rapper was taken backstage, where he used a microphone to tell the audience that a “big ass piece of glass” had lodged in his leg. His Rae Sremmurd partner Swae Lee told the crowd, “This shit is pretty crazy….This n—a’s leg is like, split open, I’m serious.”

Jimmy left the festival to receive further medical treatment at a nearby hospital, and Swae Lee continued the performance. A photo of Jimmy in the ambulance was posted to Rae Sremmurd’s Instagram, telling fans he is “doing ok thanks to all the fans.” Swae to continued the performance, which included the tracks “My X” and “No Type.”
