This weekend Memphis rapper Glo Rilla’s Rochester, New York, concert resulted in a stampede that left two beautiful Black women deceased, another fighting for her life, and eight others injured.


The mayor of Buffalo released the name of one of the victims, Rhondesia Belton.

There’s a growing speculation that the stampede may have been due, at least in part, by an over capacity concert. Media Take Out learned that the capacity at the venue, the Armory, is 5,000 people.

The City of Rochester is not yet releasing an estimate of how many people were in attendance – but Media Take Out obtained a photo from the concert showing what appeared to be a lot more than 5,000 people.

There were reportedly only two exits doors, Media Take Out is hearing where everyone in the club tried to use to exit.


The stampede was started after concertgoers believed that someone started sh**ting in the crowd, Media Take Out confirmed.

While “no evidence to support a shooting having occurred” was found, Rochester police lieutenant Nicholas Adams explained, “the injuries appear to be as a result of a large crowd pushing towards the exits following accounts of individuals hearing what they believed to be g**shots.”

One of the victims is Rhondesia Belton, 33, a beautiful 35-year-old mother who worked for the Buffalo Traffic Violations Agency but also worked as an entrepreneur on the side.

Police Chief David M. Smith reiterated the same findings during a news briefing Monday: “We do not have any evidence of g*nshots being fired or of anyone being sh*t or sta**ed at the scene.”

Police are investigating several possible causes of the surge, including “possibly crowd size, sh**s fired, pepper spray and other contributing factors,” Smith added.

Glo Rilla released this statement on the incident:

I am devastated & heartbroken over the tragic deaths that happened after Sunday’s show. My fans mean the world to me. praying for their families & for a speedy recovery of everyone affected.”

There will be no “speedy recovery” for the two women who d*ed, nor for the one fighting for her life.

Media Take Out spoke with family members of both victims – and they are still reeling over the death of their loved one.

One family member told Media Take Out, “Someone has to pay for this, it’s criminal.”

When we asked specifically if they planned on filing a lawsuit against Glo Rilla and her team, the family member told us, “If that’s what it takes to bring out justice, then yes.”
