A new video seemingly shows what led to the altercation between August Alsina and Tory Lanez in Chicago over the weekend..
In the recently released footage (posted by comedian Skinbone) August is seen walking toward a crowd of people, including Lanez. As he approaches, Lanez extends his hand for a handshake, to which Alsina swiftly moves to dodge the gesture.

Tory appears to be bothered but laughs and continues walking with his entourage in the opposite direction. Moments later the “Chixtapes” singer can be seen with security walking down the hallway seemingly towards August. While it’s unclear where he was headed, people in the background could be heard one yelling, “Don’t do it; you already shot Megan.”
In the following clip, which seems to be after the alleged altercation, Tory is once again seen walking down the hallway; this time, he seems to be explaining something sternly to his security as a bystander yells, “You knocked his ass out.”
“Tory said he just knocked August Alsina’s ass right out,” the bystander continued. “He said one punch crushed his ass.”
In the final clip, Tory is seen in lighter spirits as he high-fives people in the crowd.
On Sunday Alsina claimed in a series of graphic Instagram posts that Lanez, whose real name is Daystar Peterson, attacked him at the “Fall Back In Love Comedy & Music Jam” show held at the Arie Crown Theatre in Chicago Saturday night.
Alsina, described Peterson as a hyperactive “leprechaun” who rushed him with eight “oversized” bodyguards. He claims he was the victim of a “sneak attack” by Peterson, who then allegedly ran “back off into the building.”
Chicago Police confirmed to Rolling Stone that a 30-year-old man was allegedly “punched in the face” by another 30-year-old man at around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, listing a location that matches the theater.
“Detectives are investigating,” the department says, declining to name the victim.
As you know Lanez is already awaiting trial on felony charges he allegedly shot at — and wounded — Megan Thee Stallion in her feet during an attack in Los Angeles two years ago.
