British rapper Professor Green has spoken of his terror as a Mobo Awards afterparty descended into violence, forcing the star to cut short his performance and evacuate the venue.
The Just be Good To Green hitmaker picked up the prize for Best U.K. Hip Hop/Grime Act at the prestigious Music Of Black Origin (MOBO) Awards in Liverpool, England on Wednesday night (20Oct10) and he attended a post-awards bash to celebrate after the show.
But the party at the city's Hilton Hotel turned nasty when brawls broke out in the crowd, and irate revellers began throwing bottles on stage as Green was performing.
Police were called to deal with the situation and the rapper cut short his set in a bid to escape the scuffles.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "After what happened to me (when I was stabbed in the neck last year) I didn't want to take any chances with someone jumping up on stage, so I just got out of there."
