The show must go on.
It's a cliche, sure, but it's one that Rae Sremmurd -- and, specifically, Slim Jimmy -- seemed to take to heart on Friday, Jun. 5.
As the energetic duo hit the stage around 1:30 p.m. at the first day of this weekend's Governors Ball on Randall's Island in New York City, they were forced to brave the elements. Uncharacteristically cool June temperatures weren't the worst of it, though -- the rain was coming down in NYC, too.
It looks like the slippery conditions got the best of Slim Jimmy, and caused him to fall and hurt his leg on some glass.
SLIM JIM FROM RAE SREMMURD JUST FELL OFF THE STAGE AND SPLIT HIS LEG AND THEYRE STILL PLAYING— Assata Monet (@monetlmao) June 5, 2015
If you're at all familiar with Rae Sremmurd, you know their energy is completely off the charts no matter the setting, so especially with an adrenaline rush like they must get onstage, are you really surprised that Slim Jimmy got back on the mic?
He didn't just keep rapping, though. Apparently he did it while being worked on by the medical staff.
Now he's rapping while being worked on by doctors. The last rap show I saw, Boosie threw up one song in. I think I am very bad luck now.— ItsTheReal (@itsthereal) June 5, 2015

And he must want to see what happened, because he asked fans to post the footage if they caught it.

Eventually, Swae Lee finished the set without his partner-in-rhyme.
Here's some (presumably pre-fall) turn up.
Sounds like a little more than a "pretty good show."
Get well soon, Jimmy.
