Pusha-T’s concert in Toronto on Tuesday night was cut short after a group of men rushed the stage in an apparent attempt to jump the rapper.
According to reports on social media, several individuals began throwing beer, water, and paint at Pusha-T mid-way through his set at Danforth Music Hall. Eventually, three men jumped onto the stage. They were quickly intercepted by members of Pusha’s security team as Pusha himself watched from the side of the stage.
Police and paramedics responded to the scene, and took three people to a local hospital with injuries. Update – Nov. 21st at 10:00 a.m.: According to TMZ, a fourth person checked himself into the hospital with life-threatening stab wounds and has been in surgery since last night. Another three people sustained minor injuries, but declined medical treatment.
Pusha-T eventually returned to the stage and proceeded to accuse Drake, his longtime rival and a native of Toronto, of orchestrating the incident. “This nigga paid some niggas to throw beer,” Pusha alleged. “What the fuck is that?” He then launched into his Drake diss track “Infrared” along with “I Don’t Like” before ending the show.
The longtime rivals saw their feud come to a head earlier this year, after Pusha-T revealed the existence of Drake’s secret love child. As of now, there’s no evidence to support Pusha-T’s claim that Drake was behind the incident (more thank likely, it was some overzealous Drake stans taking matters into their own hands). Still, it certainly adds a dramatic new chapter to the year’s most compelling feud.
