Last night saw a fight break out on stage at a Pusha T show in Toronto, with one man left with life-threatening injuries.
Pusha was performing at the city’s Danforth Music Hall yesterday (November 20) when his set was interrupted by what appeared to be fans storming the stage.
According to TMZ, a man was rushed to hospital with serious stab wounds after the show ended. Although it was confirmed he had been present at the concert, it was unclear whether he was injured during the onstage attack or in a separate incident.
Pusha blamed Drake for the attack, telling the crowd after he had returned to the stage that he believed the Toronto rapper had “paid” attendees to throw beer at him. He also performed the track ‘Infrared’ when he re-emerged after the incident, a track which takes aim at the ‘Scorpion’ star.

Toronto Police confirmed that they were called to an assault in progress amid reports that performers were being attacked onstage “by a number of people.” It was also confirmed that three people had been sent to the hospital in connection with the incident.
Pusha T and Drake are yet to respond to the incident.
This comes shortly after Pusha T denied any involvement in the “fuck Drake” message which appeared on-screen during his recent performance at Camp Flog Gnaw Festival.
Pusha T and Drake are known for hurling insults at each other. Recently, Drake said in HBO’s The Shop that Pusha’s diss track, ‘The Story Of Adidon’, crossed a line. The song, released in May, hears Pusha rap about Drake having a secret son, which Drizzy confirmed weeks later.
Drake responded to Pusha’s diss track, which also featured artwork of the Toronto rapper in black-face, with a song called ‘Duppy Freestyle’.
In June, Pusha said the pair’s beef was “all over”, saying that he was ready to “be back to the music for real”.
