Drake to Undergo Knee Surgery

Drake has taken the fall and must now pay for it. The injured singer-rapper is taking some time off to recover from a torn ACL after falling on stage Friday.

In a blog entry on his site Sunday titled “Angels and Demons,” the “Best I Ever Had” hitmaker said he will undergo surgery in his hometown of Toronto, Canada, after he collapsed while performing at the “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival” in Camden, N.J. He also addressed fans who are not happy with his quick rise to fame.

This bottle of Opus One is low but my spirits are high my friends. I am about 2 hours away from Toronto, CA where I will be spending the next chunk of time recovering from a surgery that I now must have. I embarked on this tour with a torn ACL, MCL, and LCL and due to the events that happened the other night lord only knows what other damage I have done. On the bright side I will begin the reflecting and soul searching that its going to take to make this album and my outfit on the night I fell was crack. I will forever push myself beyond the limits despite advice and recommendations given because even with this new found success I am still the kid who wanted this more than anything in the world. Its funny when I read comments from previous fans who have lost interest because of the radio play and exposure I have. I just want to assure anyone reading that nothing has changed on my end. I refuse to get comfortable, I refuse to fall in line and follow anyone elses formulas. I still work as if So Far Gone had never dropped and I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to gain entry to this game.

See you soon.
