Last September at a concert for MTV's Wonderland, Joey Bada$$ found himself sharing the stage with a Hillary Clinton impersonator and a Donald Trump one. That latter, Phillip Wilburn, is alleging that the Brooklyn rapper shoved him off the stage and owes him $1.5 million as a result.

"Wilburn says he had to shell out $1k in medical expenses after the fall and might possibly need surgery so things could add up to $25k," TMZ reports. "He thinks he'll lose around $50k in lost profits due to his injuries."

Roll the clip for yourself:

Wilburn has done a number of high-profile Donald Trump impersonation stints, including on Conan, Kimmel and Funny or Die. After the event, he shared an Instagram post of himself and the "Devastated" spitter onstage, writing, "My Trump is so good I guess he thought I was the real thing." 

He also fired off some tweets:

All-Amerikkkan Bada$$ drops this Friday. The 22-year-old told Pharrell over the weekend that he thinks he "might be blacklisted or something like that" once music industry folk hear the things he's talking about. "It’s really topics that I think need to be discussed more in music,” he said.

Watch Joey Bada$$ tell Fuse about guest starring on Mr. Robot, and how the show is like The Matrix:
