Last Friday, September 5th, the rapper known as Stitches -- internet-famous for intimidating face tattoos and rapping "I love selling blow!" -- abruptly ended his performance and abandoned a meet-and-greet at a Lake Worth nightclub. Witnesses say, and video shows, that the 19-year-old, whose real name is Phillip Katsabanis, stormed off stage after offering cocaine to female audience members, which triggered a confrontation with his wife, Erica Duarte.
Stitches performed alongside Old Habits, a hardcore band, and Web Three, a rock-rap mashup, at Lake Worth's Propaganda.
Filmmakers Christian Duke and Kyle "Kyote" Oloughlin were at the show to capture footage for a "Gangstas & Thugs" documentary about violence in both hardcore and hip-hop. They captured some of the incident on video.More »
