Drake injured during concert stage fall

Canadian rapper Drake took a nasty fall on stage, further damaging his already-injured knee during a set for Lil Wayne’s ‘Americas Most Wanted’ Tour in Camden, New Jersey on Friday. 

The rising hip-hop artist, who reportedly tore his Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) while playing basketball last month, ignored doctors warning to rest-up his leg and sit the tour out to prevent such an incident.

Prior to the fall, Heartbreak Drake spoke to MTV about his decision to perform, he said: “I didn’t really get any approval from my doctor, but I made a personal decision 48 hours ago that I’d be letting a lot of people down if I didn’t show up and at least show them I’m there for them.

“For the last two weeks, I’ve been really going hard, getting all types of acupuncture, trying to bring the swelling down. I’m walking around — no cane. I’ll put a brace on it tomorrow night. No one will probably even know I’m injured…I’m not doing my own set. That’s one thing I have to apologize to my fans about. It’s too much of a risk, if I hit that wrong turn [doing] 30 minutes every night. If I tear my ACL again, the doctors say I might not be able to walk again. I have to be cautious.”

Video footage of the fall sees Drizzy ramping up the crowd with Lil Wayne in the run up to perform his hit song ‘Best I Ever Had’ before he takes a tumble. Stagehands run to his aid before escorting him off the stage and leaving an awkward Weezy to finish up the set. 

Shortly after his slip, the 22-year-old tweeted: “All is well. On the bus laying down…Getting surgery this week but I’m walking. Thank you my whole YM [Young Money] family for the help. Lion Hearts!”

Good to hear Drizzy Drake is recovering well. For those of you who may remember him from his ‘Degrassi’ days playing a young, wheel-chair bound Jimmy, all I have to say is…oh the irony.
