"PLEASE DRINK WATER I'M DEADASS" True, though.

Exactly

Most people doing MDMA don’t realize they’re over heating until it’s too late. Always take a break to cool down and hydrate.


Jreal22

And they take it when they're at a concert filled with thousands of people cramped into a tiny space lol. Always make a plan, saw a friend of mine end up in a hospital for 4-5 days from a seizure, their brain fried because they didn't drink water and wore heavy clothing. Once shit gets going, it's hard to keep an eye on everyone but I always tried to watch my friends, but some people just are naive. They're so happy they forget that overheating will cause them to seize.

Hello deadass, I'm Gilbert guyh.


sans_serif_size12

I’m putting that on a poster and hanging it up at work lmao


Aesk

A message Lil Jon was preaching years ago. [https://youtu.be/GlKL\_EpnSp8?t=85](https://youtu.be/GlKL_EpnSp8?t=85) Much respect for any artist that cares about their fans. It's just good business!


2002Valkyrie

Not my thing but I am a fan of anyone who cares enough to stop what they are doing for the good of a stranger.


IamDuckieee

Went to a Lamb of God and Megadeth show in Kansas City and Lamb of God stopped the show because of a fight, after all was clear they restarted. After the Astroworld incident I hope all artists do this.


AnActualWizardIRL

Yeah I think Metal and Hardcore bands have bitter experience on this one. You gotta be strict on the violence, or people die, esp at festivacls or stadiums, all it needs is for violence to spread, you get a panic stampede, and suddenly you got dead kids. And its posion for the scene when that happens, it bankerupts festivals and traumatizes staff. Theres no room for error with large crowds, and the heavy bands know that and are pro's at getting the audiences to back the f\*\* down.


Village_People_Cop

Lamb of God especially takes no chances anymore and even tells audiences to chill a bit nowadays. In 2010 a fan climbed on stage and was pushed off by Randy Blythe the singer of Lamb of God. Climbing onstage is something that is a big no-no in metal after in 2004 someone climbed on stage and shot 6 people including Dimebag Darrell. The guy at the Lamb of God show ended up dying 2 days later from the fall (he was fine during and after the show but had some internal injury). Then in 2012 Randy was arrested when entering the Czech republic because apparently there was an arrest warrant for him because of the guy's death. Randy ended up in prison for weeks and eventually was acquitted. Now they are more careful, not to prevent another court case but more to make sure that their fans are okay


RabidWolf-1

Yea my uncle worked for festivals back in the days of heavy metal 🤘 and in a mosh pit witnessed a guy get thrown into a brick wall and die he quit after yhat


Jacksonrr31

In my experience when you are in a mosh pit and you fall down most folks are quick to help you up and make room for you to get out of the pit of you need a minute.


PHBestFeeder

Depends, if it's grindcore the fans are way too fucking wild. People doing kung-fu shit, I even got rocked one time from a spinning backfist this kid was doing and the people who helped me after a solid minute or two weren't the ones inside, it's the wall of people circling the pit. Shit's fun though.


SciGuy013

Yeah, it’s not cool when grindcore fans are doing it to the people not in the pit too


weirdest_of_weird

At a metal concert years ago, we saw a dude punch a girl maybe early 20s. She wasnt in the mosh, but got caught at the edge of it and dude knocked her out. Her boyfriend jumped in the pit and knocked the guy smooth the fuck out. Split his lip, made him swallow a tooth. Security didnt even put hands on the guy, they just asked him to leave and dragged out the unconscious dude.


STDCLAPTRAP

Thats not a pit that's a special needs class.


Egglebert

Yeah it really depends. One of the scariest experiences of my life was getting caught in a push towards the stage, I'm 120lb and having an out of control mass of 300lb metalheads all around you is terrifying. I was trying my best to get myself and my similarly sized female friend away from the center of it was nearly impossible. None of them had the slightest awareness of what was going on or that 2 people were very close to being trampled to the floor. If either of us had actually gotten knocked down it would certainly have been very bad. That was one of the last shows like that I ever went to, it was just not cool and literally no one cared or had the awareness to pay the least bit of attention to the people around them. I've been to plenty of other events where people were much better human beings


desert_rat22

I'm thinking Randy Blythe may be a little more cautious about weird shit happening at shows nowadays anyway.


OldResearcher6

Metal and hard rocks hows ive been to have been notoriously cogniscent of fans in trouble or people getting hurt. Both fans and bands always look to make sure everyone is good. Its been like that for decades. Even the mosh pits have unwritten rules.


Faking_Faker

Unlike that other guy....


ReputationDesperate2

Yeah... I forgot who that was.... Was his name Travis? 👀 Eugh yuck..

Same here, not my type of music but fuck that guy is one great human being. Killing it professionally and personally with his fans.


the_localcrackhead

Yea this is something i wasn't expecting especially after the last concert with whats his name just not giving a fuck as people are suffucating and being trampled on


CoolinAllDay

Started handing out water afterward too, that’s so dope.


cosmic_nobody

I’ve always thought Lil Pump was trash with his music but I gotta admit this made me respect him. It’s cool for an artist to do something like that.


Plastic-Strike7149

Stopping to call paramedics is crucial either way. Checking on the person then explaining his condition, followed by advice to help try and avoid it happening to other people and handing out water is an extra step above and beyond. I also hate his music but if you respect your fans that goes a long way


Glynnc

I think I remember seeing another angle of this incident where he told everybody to get the fuck away from the person who was Ill, and made everybody make space for the paramedics so they could get to the person. Then again, my memory is wack so I could very well have made all of that up.


heckastupidd

His music isn’t for everyone. But this isn’t the first time he’s done something that was pretty nice. He seems to be a good dude that just does some wild shit. He does porn now lmao. But that obviously doesn’t make you a bad person.


SKaiPanda2609

Hopefully his name doesn’t check out lmao


SniperOwO

Hopefully it does so us lil pumpers can have some representation. LETS GO LIL P


lavishjax

Porn????


marcdel_

it’s this thing where people have sex on camera for money


cosmic_nobody

Did I miss something?


green_mango_and_sour

Lol lil pump as his pornstar name


cosmic_nobody

Lmao that’s news to me! Did not know he did porn but can’t hate on that cuz we all be watching the nasty lol


wolfman579

Yeah, hate the art, not the artist


Critical_Sweet_3734

For real better than Travis Scott lmao


Aesk

That's an incredibly low bar. But good on Lil Pump all the same.


Alarkinspace

Yeah it's Cool that he did that. Not a fan of how strongly he pushed drug culture (even more so than other rappers or rock stars) by basically making lean and Xanax this whole personality. But he was a teenager then so I blame the people around letting him do that more


Glynnc

They won’t get you on the radio if you don’t sing/rap what they want you to. When you sign on, they take full control of your public presence, and even your personality becomes part of your contract. Not to mention the fact that rap culture has never been kind to people that come off as “soft” or “deep”. Those kinds of rappers still make it through on occasion, but the vast majority of them don’t, and they certainly aren’t as popular as the others.


depressedadult_

"Drink some water" is the best advice you can give to someone doing recreational drugs. Shrooms, LSD, Molly, amphetamines, or coke. Dehydration is also one of the main causes of hangovers too so drink two glasses of water after a night out.


devtastic

Although also be careful not to overdo the water if you are taking ecstasy/MDMA. There have been a few deaths from that over the years. [https://www.talktofrank.com/drug/ecstasy#the-risks](https://www.talktofrank.com/drug/ecstasy) >Drinking too much (including water) can also be dangerous. This is because ecstasy can cause the body to release a hormone which stops it making urine. If you drink too quickly you might affect your body's salt balance, which can be as deadly as not drinking enough water.


AnActualWizardIRL

Sure its possible. But its very rare, and even rarer. that its anything serious, particularly at a festival where theres paramedics who are trained for all these sorts of things.


[deleted]

14 deaths total from water none drug related


[deleted]

I mean are there any reported deaths attributed to drinking too much water while taking to hydrate while taking drugs. And before anyone says well if you chug 5 gallons of water you’ll die yeah no shit BUT i am positing that no one has died from hydrating during from use. Drug Overdose sure, water overdose nah


Amstervince

It has happened a lot. Nowadays techno festivals in Europe warn against drinking too much water


devtastic

Here are at 2 attributed to ecstasy. * [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death\_of\_Leah\_Betts](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Death_of_Leah_Betts) * [https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11265566/](https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11265566/) The Leah Betts one was very famous at the time in the UK. It was somehow sadder and more tragic because she was following the advice of the time to drink water as ravers had been dropping from dehydration/exhaustion. To quote the Wikipedia article: >She had apparently been in observation of an advisory warning commonly given to ravers which stated drinking water would help her avoid dehydration as a result of continuous dancing


SuperSpeshBaby

You're mistaken. There have been reported deaths from too much water, usually by people on ecstasy. It happens because they drink so much water that their electrolyte balance gets out of whack, and they don't replenish their salts (because ecstasy also kills your appetite for food).


lucifusmephisto

Yo only on Reddit is everyone all "yeah, brah, drinking water is good" and you can deadass 1000% expect someone to swoop in and say some shit like this. You forgot to mention that people drown or choke, or fall asleep in the bathtub.


SwimmingIndependent8

No ones saying drinking water isn’t good, you just need to moderate. We’re not being asshole Debbie downers, this is legit a concern. Growing up, at school they made us all read a story called [Anna’s Story](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anna_Wood_(born_1980)) where she took ecstasy but drank way too much water and died from water intoxication. Even at raves when we’re rolling and we pass out water we always tell each other “sip it!”


SoylentDave

This isn't a pedantic correction being issued to make people feel all smug; it's literally a thing to be aware of ***in this exact situation.*** Lots of people will - as in the OP - recommend 'drink lots of water' if you're taking drugs, and it's not actually safe to do that if you're taking certain kinds of drugs, because you'll effectively ***overdose on the water***. Being aware of that is smart drug-taking too.


Daan0man

And you just know the statement “don’t do drugs” ain’t gonna do shit at that point. The water tip was honestly the best advice that could have been given there


sleepySQLgirl

As a concert-goer in Texas, this applies to drinking alcohol, too. Alternate between drinking a serving of alcohol and water. This includes beer. You’ll be able to go longer and harder plus you won’t feel as bad the next day. Even if you’re stone cold sober, hydration is important!


lukii508

I wouldn't put psychedelics in the same category stimulants, and I'd argue the setting is way more important than what substance you use. When you do Molly chilling at home on your couch, you can get away with not drinking a lof of water. Being out on a party/concert/festival however where you move and dance a lot, you need tons of water, even if you're completely sober.


P33L_R

Yeah but alot of the time you don't realize how dehydrated you are whole you're on psychedelics for obvious reasons


lukii508

That's true but they don't necessarily hype you up to dance and move more than usually (at least for me). Psychedelics make you unaware of dehydration, but stimulants make you unaware of dehydration AND cause you to lose more water, so still a different caliber imo.


ThePlottHasThickened

I always sense dehydration on stims. I got one of those nice yeti gallon jugs I like to keep with me. Shit keeps ice, actual ice for literal days


Teddyturntup

Nurse the water though. Chugging 2 glasses just gonna make you hurl and sleep like shit

TDS-Androxus

Tell that to Travis Scott


pnutbutterfuck

Every time I see a video of a performer stopping their show to help someone, it makes me hate Travis Scott more.


Python-Token-Sol

you can tell which rap artist actually care about their fans.


aiemaironmen

Y'all have no idea who travis scott is and still pretend to know everything about what happened to his concert, for sure I should have act different, but say that is all his fault is objectively wrong for so many reason


SirSkittles111

Did you even watch what ***actually*** happened at that concert?


eternallnewbie

I don't even really know who he is, but I'm a fan now


Doubledeesbongmilk

Spend 30 seconds on Google and you won’t be lol


ffaceroll

Just checked his wiki and it’s not that bad. I think the worst thing is he got banned from JetBlue for not wearing a mask in 2020. No violent crimes or anything. Idk, though, don’t know anything about him.


Doubledeesbongmilk

Full disclosure I liked him until he became a MAGA person out of nowhere. He was one of those people raving about communism and praising trump publicly during election times. That’s all I was talking about really


Veid_

He legit just did that out of fear of losing popularity which happened anyway lol


DisgruntledYoda

Wow yeah, it’s so terrible that he has a different political opinion than yours… what are you, 5?


Aporkalypse_Sow

Different political opinion/not a fan of people that support sedition and traitors...


-Dyleix

This is Reddit. They don't care about different opinions, it's largely a hive-mind with a few hubs that disagree (but then bam, they become quarantined which is pretty close to being deleted)


jdoublee123

Oh no minority has different opinion . Such a bad person .


Strength-InThe-Loins

I mean, a white person with the same opinions is also a piece of shit, so...


Doubledeesbongmilk

Yes people who intentionally spread false information for the purpose of their own personal gain are genuinely very bad people


Mythical_Moonshine

Good thing it wasn’t Travis Scott up there, he probably would have told the crowd to beat up the guy having a seizure


[deleted]

Wow ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|grin) I had to laugh a little because of the ubsurdity of this. But yes, I think you might even be right. Sadly


Lolijustdidthat

What?


MrMcPhee3

Travis Scott should take notes

So I could be wrong but I think because of Travis Scott’s incident, lot of artists are learning from his mistake.

Lil pump's concerts aren't as breathtaking as Travis Scott's


PrincesaNeko

It’s worth dying for


MiQueso_SuQueso

I remember being at an indoor house music event. Did some Ketamine, and was feeling like shit. I went to recoup myself at a high table near the bar. For some reason I could hear 2 girls talking 10 feet or so away from me, and one of them says I look like I need help, so they come toe.and watch me while I drink water. I want to say thank you, and I always remember that memory of a random strangers making sure I was doing fine.


Emilysue2000

This shows what a shit person Travis Scott is


CalebD32

Still dislike his music lol, but dudes good in my book. My boss had a seizure at work once and everyone just wanted to fuckin stand around and stare. I cant fucking stand that shit. Had to start ordering people around to make sure he got cared for and was safe. I respect anyone who cares about and makes an effort to help people who's health is obviously in immediate jeopardy. Good on you, Lil Pump.


deci1997

If he would've stopped his social media antics and just dropped good music, which he has done on a few occasions, he could've made it and not looked like such a clown nowadays


incollala

The problem is, he's a shit musician and all of his fame is built on the antics.


deci1997

There's a few songs that show he can actually do more than be repetitive. iSHYNE is a good example.


incollala

I'm gonna listen to that, thx! Btw in this video I was very pleasantly surprised, I thought he's always a giant douchebag, but apparently he has his good moments too.


blxckhoodie999

gotta consider the production tho - the *lyrics* and flow of iSHYNE are pretty meh, but carnage absolutely demolished that beat so it hits


deci1997

Lyrics are never gonna be good on a pump song but the energy fucking hits


GeoffAO2

Not every musician wants to be an artist, some are primarily entrepreneurs. If repetitive music and antics are showing a solid return, then it makes sense that those efforts are where he invest his time.


djch0

Haters gonna hate


Python-Token-Sol

thats his style though you just sound like a straight hater.


9Sylvan5

Damn I wasn't, and prob still won't be a fan,of lil pump's music. But he just gained my respect


Sjeezem

Lol he did not do anything admirable. He was just doing the human thing. no one gains my respect by doing the most logical thing there is.


moratapinella76

Seriously im reading these comments wondering what hes getting insanely praised for. Not letting someone die? Or get trampled on? Have standards fallen this low lol?


Sjeezem

Right? What will be the next thing? Someone filming a young person helping and elder cross the road? SUCH ADMIRABLE


moratapinella76

Or for simply holding the door for someone? I mean if you see someone having a seizure you dont just ignore it. Its not that spectacular. Hes not a hero for this lmao. Hes just maybe not a scumbag.


Sjeezem

Hahahaha i made a sound when i read your comment 🤣 Ffs its a seizure maybe even caused by his own flashing lights and stuff. I agree with maybe just not a scumbag. At the highest its that!


lilrat2348

Are you guys done jerking each other off?


moratapinella76

Not yet


lilrat2348

Respect ✊


moratapinella76

Thanks fam. We good now 😌


Mithras_

Personally checking on the fan was an extra step, as was handing out water bottles


Goggles32

What’s the purpose in mentioning you don’t like his music? You couldnt have just said he gained your respect and moved on? People always have to bring out the negativity in a positive situation.


9Sylvan5

Don't get your panties in a twist. I'm sharing my opinion, that's what comments are for. If you don't like it you can always follow your own advice and move on.


Fshskyline

“YAAAYY WOOOO THIS GUY IS DOING SOMETHING ANY OTHER RATIONAL HUMAN BEING WOULD DO YEAAAAAA!!!”


Effective-Ad8833

The opposite of a Travis Scott concert


Archer957Light

I don't care for his music but he's got my respect for this.


Riadur

If I was Lil Pump, I'd feel awkward at people cheering me for helping to save someone. I'd feel like I'm putting in a show that's staged. Idk


Mithras_

I think they were cheering because he said the guy was going to be ok, so it’s really for the guy having a seizure rather than the rapper


CyberShiroGX

Even fucking Lil Pump can do it... Meanwhile Travis Scott will be singing moaning while he watches a dead body being carried


CoronaBoeing

Compare this vs Travis Scott. Need celebrities that genuinely care about their fans/people in general. Love to see this


Tremelune

It’s almost as if water should be freely available at all large gatherings instead of sold in bottles for $5.


RepresentativeBig178

Travis scott take notes buddy


bottleofvino

You have this guy and then you have the fuckhead named travis scott


natorious__

Better than travis scott


SpikesGuns

The EMTs and paramedics on scene who dedicated their lives to training to help people and handle energent situations like this are the ones who potentially saved his life. Good on the rapper for pointing out the situation, but he's not the one people should be praising


ExpressEffort7916

Those who died at the Travis Scott were the precedent of giving a shit about safety


JerbearCuddles

Not a fan of his music, but a fan of the person now. I'm deadass.


Knackwarrior07

Take notes Travis.


flamewolf393_2

I may hate his music, but gotta give mad respect to him for his good heart


MisterBaked

it's the simplest advice but so many people forget to drink water or don't prioritize it enough at festivals

As much as I don’t care for his music, something like this earns my respect instantly.


Wide_Extent5636

Pretty sure the paramedics helped him but it was still a cool thing to do


Aceswift007

Paramedics wouldn't be helpful if the guy having a seizure was trampled or they could actually get to the guy


DrugzRockYou

Why is anyone acting like he didn’t do that just to play off the Astroworld tragedy?..


PericlodGD

who cares? even if that's the case he still did a good thing stopping the show to help the fan

I didn’t say he didn’t do a good thing, lots of good things are done for bad reasons.
