Kidz In The Hall Release Official Statement Regarding Arizona Incident

I know people were having a laugh about this earlier today, but it seems the BS security a.k.a. the club’s rent-a-cops really did a number on Double-O, and it turned out to be more serious than we thought:

Double O from the hip hop group Kidz In The Hall was assaulted by several bouncers early Saturday morning, July 26, while inside a nightclub in Tempe, AZ following a Kidz In The Hall performance. Group member and friend Naledge, who did not witness the assault on Double O, was arrested outside of the club. Naledge’s attempt to get medical assistance for Double O was misconstrued as a hindrance to the investigation. Reports that no injuries were sustained are false as Double O was taken to the hospital with multiple injuries from the excessive force used by club security. On Sunday morning Double O underwent surgery for one of his injuries. He is still in the hospital, but in stable condition.

In the last 2 years, Kidz In The Hall has traveled to over 10 countries, have done 200+ shows and never before been involved in any altercation, big or small, with club or concert security, or police officers.

Seriously, I wish Double O a speedy recovery and hopefully these guys are able to get this incident behind them quickly. They’re obviously not known to go out and participate in the usual hip hop fuckery, so this just goes to show that the general public still doesn’t respect our culture.
