After replacing his frenemy Kanye West as a headliner at the Rolling Loud Festival in Miami, Kid Cudi’s July 22 headlining set was cut short after multiple water bottles were thrown at him from the crowd.

“Yo, I will walk off this stage if you all throw one more fucking thing up here, I will leave, I will leave right now,” he said after the impact. “Throw one more fucking thing on this stage and I’ll walk off, I’m not fucking playing. I’m not fucking playing, you will ruin it for everybody. I’ll fucking leave If I get hit with one more fucking thing, if I see one more fucking thing on this fucking stage, I’m leaving. Don’t fuck with me.” Almost immediately, another water bottle was thrown at Cudi and he walked off.

Although West’s performance was canceled days before the festival, he showed up during Lil Durk’s set that evening, where the duo performed “Hot Shit,” the new Cardi B song on which they both feature, as well as West’s classic “Father Stretch My Hands Pt. 1.” Notably, the latter song features vocals from Cudi. Watch the pair’s performance below.

A rep for Cudi did not immediately respond to Variety‘s request for comment, however on Saturday afternoon Rolling Loud issued the following statement: “Rolling Loud is a family. Our fans, the artists, and everyone involved need to look out for each other. Share the love and be respectful to everyone. We love you, Cudi. Please take care of each other and let’s have an amazing day 2!”
