Saints’ Nick Fairley & R&B Group Jagged Edge Almost Fight on Stage: ‘Get Your Big Ass Off the Stage, N**ga’ (Video)
A few weeks before the New Orleans Saints gave DT Nick Fairley a contract for 4 years, worth almost $30M, he almost got into a brawl with an R&B group.
Fairley was the Grand Marshal for a Mardi Gras themed event in Mobile, Alabama, and Jagged Edge was the scheduled entertainment for the event. But it seems Fairley took his position a little too serious and wanted to be the center of attention.
“A live war broke out between beloved R&B group Jagged Edge and NFL star Nick Fairley — when the Saints star hijacked their concert … and the singers told him to get his “big ass” off the stage.
It went down Feb. 24 at the Grand Marshal’s Ball — a Mardi Gras event in Fairley’s hometown of Mobile, Alabama — where Nick was the Grand Marshal and Jagged Edge was the featured entertainment.
But when JE took the stage, all hell broke loose because the 6’4″, 300-pound defensive lineman refused to get off … and the singers felt he was disrespecting them.
Security was called in … but Fairley still wouldn’t leave. You can hear people yelling at Fairley to go. At one point, a frustrated Jagged Edge says, “You want the mic? You can have this show my n**ga.”
JE cut the session short and a full scale melee almost erupted when members of Fairley’s family stormed the stage … one yelled into the mic, “F**k Jagged Edge!”
