The A$AP Mob member, whose real name is Rakim Athelaston Mayers, is almost struck in the face by a flying cell phone when he performs in a Latvia concert.

AceShowbiz - A$AP Rocky melts people's hearts with his act at a recent show in Latvia. The A$AP Mob member earned praise for staying calm instead of getting upset after he was almost hit with a phone during his performance.

In a video surfacing online, Rocky was seen inviting a male fan who threw his phone to join him on stage. After giving the fan a warm hug, the emcee said, "You almost hit me with that phone and caught my face. You gotta be careful baby."

The "Good for You" spitter, whose real name is Rakim Athelaston Mayers, put his hand on the fan's shoulder while saying, "I love you too. So you ready to go crazy?" He then warned, "Look, no more throwing phones man."

A number of online users have since applauded Rocky for his calm reaction. "We need ppl like him," one person gushed. "He's a sweetheart. I have no bad things to say about him. Good spirit," another raved, while a third added, "he handled that incredibly well."

The compliment did not stop there. More came forward with one writing, "Wholesome moment." A different user then jokingly commented, "If I went home to clap Rihanna every day I would never get mad anymore."

Things went differently with Lil Uzi Vert. Earlier this month, Uzi broke the Internet after tossing their phone at the Wireless Festival crowd in the U.K. Sharing videos from the incident was TikTok user @ccornonmycob a.k.a. Drilla G.

The first clip saw Uzi hyping the crowd up before performing their 2016 song "Money Longer". As they turned around, the musical artist bent down to pick up a phone and threw it high and far into the crowd. The woman also showed a series of photos showing her bloodied head. There was also a video of her being escorted by security, presumably to get medical treatment for her injury.

In the wake of the incident, a source explained, "During Uzi's set at Wireless Fest, fans threw multiple cellphones onto the stage and inadvertently struck [them]." The source added, "[They] merely attempted to clear the phones from the stage, avoid slipping and safely continue [their] performance - [they] never intentionally directed it at a specific individual."
