A well-known rapper was slapped with the word of God this weekend — quite literally. Lil Uzi Vert was on stage in Connecticut when a fan hurled a Bible at him.
Interestingly, however, the artist did not choose to ignore the Word of the Lord. Instead, he picked it up and flipped through the pages. The multi-tasking rapper managed to continue on with his performance of his hit single “XO Tour Llif3,” all the while taking a peek through the Good Book.

Fans captured images and footage of the incident and posted it to social media:

Unfortunately, on the same evening, fellow rapper Swae Lee succumbed to a much less fortunate projectile — taking an iPhone straight to the face while performing in Dallas. According to Page Six, the incident left Lee visibly upset and even bleeding from the mouth.
“I’m going to sue your a**!” he screamed. Later on, however, it appeared he had reassessed his response to the whole ordeal.
“I won’t be suing the fan,” he noted on Twitter. “Imma charge it to the game just be more careful.. I’m here to perform not dodgeball.”
It was definitely an eventful night on the rap scene!
