Fan footage shows audience members hopping the barrier and brawling with the rapper’s crew
Pusha T vs. Drake has been one of 2018’s most exhausting rap feuds. After trading back-and-forths on diss tracks like “Infrared”, “Duppy Freestyle”, and “The Story of Adidon”, Pusha seemingly laid the beef to rest in a Vanity Fair interview back in June – only for the words “Fuck Drake” to appear behind him on-stage at Tyler, the Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival. (Pusha denied that he was behind the visual, blaming a “corny ass tech dude” for the text display.)
Last night, Pusha played at the Danforth Music Hall in Drake’s hometown, Toronto, as part of his ongoing Daytona tour, and it seems that the Canadian audience didn’t necessarily take too well to him. Pusha was forced to shut down the sold-out show after a fight broke out between concertgoers and members of Pusha T’s crew.
Toronto police said that there were “numerous” people “injured from a fight inside a concert hall” after a group of people “attacked performers”, according to USA Today. Paramedics were called to the venue.
Fan footage shows Pusha being pelted with liquid and objects, followed by a group of audience members hopping the barrier and attempting to rush the stage. While they didn’t make it to Pusha, they ended up fighting with members of his team. Although the gig was taking place in Toronto, it’s not currently clear if the incident is related to his beef with Drake or not.
