The two French rappers who managed to cause a portion of Orly Airport (ORY) in Paris to be shut down three weeks ago after a brawl erupted are now out on bail as of Thursday.

Booba and Kaaris, as the two rivals are known, were heading to Barcelona for a concert when they got into an altercation that started in the departures hall and eventually found its way into one of the airport’s duty free shops. The scuffle briefly shut down the area and was said to have “endangered the lives of others”.

In the footage posted to Twitter, which goes on for 1:15, viewers can see a massive, quick-moving mass of bodies from both parties throwing kicks and punches as bottles of alcohol are heard shattering on the floor and bystanders scream in the background. Police finally manage to break things up and remove those involved from the scene.

A judge originally sentenced the duo, who are “two of France’s biggest rap stars” according to news site RFI and who had been feuding on social media, to be held until September 6 due to the “persistent animosity between the two groups.” But, the rappers (as well as other members of their entourage) were released on bail — 30,000 euros — this week after an appeals court overruled the decision. The musicians also had to turn in their passports as part of the deal.

Let’s hope they’ve got it all out of their systems now.
