Sony Music is reportedly reviewing the security protocols at its London HQ near Kings Cross following an altercation last week between rapper Headie One and another musician. Or at least so reports the Mail On Sunday.

According to the tabloid, a fight broke out between the rapper and a rival artist following a chance encounter in the cafe at the major’s newish London base last Wednesday.

The Mail reports: “Police were called after plates were thrown amid a clash between top ten selling rapper Headie One and another musician visiting the building for a meeting. Some employees were forced to hide under tables, but nobody was hurt”.

It then quotes one Sony staff member as saying: “When it all kicked off in the canteen, some people ran, and others hid. These two people clearly hate one another but for it to take place while you’re eating your lunch was shocking. There was food everywhere, as well as blood. It was terrifying”.

The fight – which the Mail speculates is linked to gang rivalry – resulted in both artists being removed from the premises by security.

As well as confirming the review of security protocols, a spokesperson for the music firm said: “Sony Music takes the safety of its staff very seriously. This is now a police matter so we cannot comment further”.
