Drake Collapses During Live Show

Drake

Drake may find himself in a wheelchair like his character Jimmy Brooks on “Degrassi: The Next Generation” if he doesn’t take it easy. The “Best I Ever Had” rapper took a fall onstage in Camden, New Jersey, on Friday night.

According to Miss Info, Drake was performing his hit song with Lil Wayne on the “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival” at the Susquehanna Bank Center when he attempted to spin while moving across the stage. He immediately collapsed to the floor as a result of an existing knee injury.

After Drake was carried offstage, a confused Lil Wayne told the crowd, “Hold up, this ni**a really got a bad leg. I thought that shit was only on the TV show. I’mma have to get some extra insurance for this ni**a, man.”

Drake injured his ACL prior to the tour and was limiting his set to 30 minutes. He decided to join the outing despite his doctor’s recommendation. A torn ACL can cause significant pain and take up to a year to heal.

“It’s too much of a risk if I hit that wrong turn [doing] 30 minutes every night,” Drake told MTV News prior to the tour. “If I tear my ACL again, the doctors say I might not be able to walk again. I have to be cautious.”

UPDATE: Drake has commented on his injury via his Twitter page. “All is well…on the bus laying down…getting surgery this week but I’m walking. Thank my whole YM family for the help! Lion Hearts!”

    I thinks its dumb, but Lil Wayne acting like a diva-b*tch. I can’t believe he would say that, my idol is no more, jk, but he acting all bad. Idk why he signed Drake to his label when all he does is give him a nose dive. 1st is the lame whack a$$ video then the condom endoresment now this. I think Wayne scared Drake gon knock him off the top. Drake needa switch label if he wants success.
