Drake Fans Allegedly Attacked Rick Ross

The feud between Drake and Kendrick Lamar isn’t going to end anytime soon. The attack on Rick Ross by Drake’s alleged fans is a prime example of the bitterness between the rappers.

Some Drake fan-like hooligans allegedly attacked Rick Ross. The incident took place when Ross concluded his performance at the Ignite Music Festival. A group of people suddenly attacked Rick Ross and his support staff.

The sudden attack, as seen in the viral video, appeared pre-planned. However, there is no official confirmation regarding the physical altercation. No updates regarding a police inquiry or any arrests have been made.

The entire incident reportedly stemmed from a diss track by Lamar. “Not Like Us” is a testament to the rap battle and personal issues between Lamar and Drake. However, Rick Ross made the mistake of choosing “Not Like Us” to conclude his performance.

Performing Drake’s diss tracks in his home city resulted in disappointing consequences. Following the performance at the music fest in Vancouver, Columbia, Ross was reportedly sucker-punched, as seen in a viral video.
