New Jersey was shocked to hear what happened on Friday night during the concert at Camden. Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa were on stage when something horrible happened.

There was a problem with the security barrier. Its collapse was followed by a lot of people falling onto a pathway where it happened. There were about 50 victims who got seriously injured.

According to the sources, it happened at 10 pm. The railing loosened because there were too many people pushing it in order to come closer to the performers.

There was too much pressure so the barrier just broke. The organizers decided to stop the concert as the incident happened. Snoop Dogg was also one of those who didn’t want the concert to go on.

He gave a command to stop the music. The announcers tried to calm people down. The police and the emergency arrived and started investigating what happened there, at New Jersey's BB&T Pavilion.

After the injured people were taken away the concert officially stopped. According to NBC, 42 people were injured and about 15 broke their legs/arms. There was even one person who nearly died.

His condition was critical so he was taken by emergency. The fans expected Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg to comment this incident somehow but none of them did.

According to the latest news, the further events will still take place at Camden. The Pavilion itself didn’t suffer that much. It was only the railing that broke loose.

The organizers don’t see any danger in continuing the performances of the other singers. It wasn’t that easy for engineers to understand how the crowd made it possible for the barrier to collapse.

However, right now they’re figuring out how to strengthen the security so that no one gets hurt during the upcoming events.

As for the incident that happened on Friday’s night, it actually caused people fall about 10 feet onto the concrete which is very serious. There is another theory why it happened.

The organizers say that the rappers were pointing at the small stage and asking people to come closer. However, the crowd was so excited that the pressure was dramatically high.

The workers of the Pavilion have reassured that it’s totally safe to host another concert there as everything was fixed.

But they are still not sure about the reasons why the railing couldn’t hold the pressure as it’s supposed to be resistible.

The other events that were planned to be held in this concert hall included "I Love the 90s" concert and a show by Fifth Harmony. It was held on the weekend and it seems like everything went well and safe.

Moreover, that person who got taken by the emergency on Friday was already released on Saturday. The company also said that even some of the workers were injured.

According to the details that were revealed later, Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa were almost done with the concert when this horrible incident happened. They stopped performing and just went away.

People expressed their discontent with the fact that the concert was stopped but there was no way it could keep going.

The victims needed to be taken to the hospital and the police had to restrain the others from getting in trouble.

On Saturday morning there were a lot of experts in the Pavilion who were asked to investigate what actually happened at Camden but there are no exact answers yet.

All morning the crew was working on fixing the railing and checking the safety once again. Right now they claim it to be safe to let in the crowd again.

Hopefully the fans have also heard about this incident and it will make them remain calm during the concerts.

The two rappers talking about politics

When the journalists asked both rappers how they felt about politics, their answers were identical. "I don't give a fuck about that shit” was their answer.

It is a well-known fact that they are having a tour around America so the interviewers want to take a chance to talk to Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg on their way.

Snoop Dogg says that he doesn’t care who is going to be elected as the next president as they will still be doing what they are doing now.

However, he also expresses his gratitude to Obama, he thinks that he has made a lot for their country.

Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa seem to respect the current president of the United States but they don’t have any comments about the candidates.

"He's doing barbecues, basketball games. He's in there just really livin' it up.", said Snoop about Obama.

There is a video of those two expressing their thoughts on politics. On this tape Snoop seems like talking to Obama himself – he says he is really thankful for what he has done for the United States.

He has “set a tone” for the other upcoming presidents. Moreover, both rappers said that they would still respect him and think of him as the president even after he is gone.

The new album of the two rappers seems to be really cool! It’s the reason why there are so many fans attending their concerts in the United States right now.

Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg seem to be good friends right now. Let’s hope that they won’t stop working together and will release even more albums!
