Pusha T Toronto Show Attack
According to emerging reports, Pusha T was attacked on stage during a performance at Danforth Music Hall in Toronto. From the videos that surface Instagram, we learn that a group threw water, beer and paint on the rapper before trying to shake up the scene.
It appears that security managed to subdue many of the party’s members before an individual reached the platform – only to be encountered by Pusha’s crew. After the attack, although Pusha himself did not appear to be affected, he left the scene to wait for the group to be apprehended by the police. A few moments later, Pusha returned to perform “I Don’t Like” and “Adidon’s story. Some time after the altercation, Pusha addressed the crowd and allegedly claimed that people were “paid” to throw beer at her. There is no official statement regarding the attack yet. HYPEBEAST has contacted representatives for Pusha and Drake for comment.
Fork reports that a spokesperson for the Toronto Police Department confirmed receiving a call about an ongoing assault at the event with reports that performers at the venue were attacked on stage “by a certain number of people ”. Three people were sent to hospital in connection with the incident with non-life threatening injuries.
Watch clips of the attack below, and stay tuned for more details as the story unfolds.
In case you missed it, Pusha T blamed a “nerdy tech guy” who worked for Camp Flog Gnaw for the Drake visuals that appeared during the rapper’s set. The words “Fuck Drake” flashed on the screen behind Pusha during her performance, which Virginia’s vet then tweeted that he did not approve of. “Dissing anyone on screen is not on my show,” he wrote.
Previously, the beef between Pusha T and Drake had been reopened when Drizzy addressed Pusha and “The Story of Adidon” in A conversation on LeBron James’ HBO show. Last month Pusha continued Joe Budden’s podcast and revealed that the source information for “Adidon” was Drake’s longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib.
