A rowdy fan at a recent Lil Boosie concert in St. Paul, Minnesota fell victim to strict security after attempting to climb onstage during the rapper's performance.

Video footage of the incident, which took place at a gig on 20 February (15), only surfaced online this week (begs02Mar15) and depicts an excited audience member attempting to pull himself up on the platform using the front stage speakers as support.

Boosie ignored the man and continued with his show, but a bodyguard moved quickly to protect the hip-hop star from the overzealous fan and appeared to smack him in the face, causing him to fall back into the crowd.

According to Tmz.com, the male was eventually kicked out of the venue.
