Pusha-T Makes It Clear He Didn’t Get Attacked at Toronto Show
Last night (Nov. 20), chaos unfolded at the Danforth Music Hall Theatre in Toronto when Pusha's Daytona Tour stop was interrupted by several men who chucked beer at the Virginia rapper and rushed the stage. Shortly afterwards, Pusha hit up Twitter to clarify that he wasn't injured during the brawl.
"Don’t spread these lies!!!" Pusha tweeted in response to an article about the onstage melee. "Thats not Pusha-T getting punished on stage...👀"
The drama began midway into the show while Pusha-T was performing. As he's rapping the words to his 2015 song "M.F.T.R.," someone in the crowd hurled a drink at Pusha, and then proceeded to throw more drinks until they began rushing the stage. By this time, the Daytona rapper had already left the stage and his security stepped in to handle the violent hecklers and remove them from the venue.
Once the coast was clear, Pusha-T returned to the stage unfazed by the situation, and proceeded to continue on with the concert. According to one fan video, Pusha seemingly alleged that Drake, who is someone's he's openly feuded with this year, paid goons to throw beer at him before getting into his verse from "I Don't Like" and of course "The Story of Adidon." This comes after Pusha-T's Camp Flog Gnaw performance where he performed while the words "Fuck Drake" were projected onto the screen behind him. After his set, Pusha blamed the "corny ass tech dude" for the mishap.
"Corny ass tech dude fucking with my screens at @CampFlogGnaw," he typed on Twitter. "I speak for myself and all of you know how I make my statements!! Dissing anybody on screen isn’t part of my show... Otherwise great festival, thanx @tylerthecreator for having me out."
