Thrown drinks escalated into a brawl at Pusha T’s concert in Toronto, and the rapper thinks the rowdy concertgoers were ‘paid’ by a certain someone. Witness the smackdown!
Pusha T, 41, wasn’t warmly welcomed in Drake’s hometown of Toronto! The rapper, infamous for revealing Drake’s then-secret son Adonis on his track “The Story Of Adidon,” had a concert at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall on Nov. 20. All was dandy until Pusha got to a verse about “water” and pandemonium ensued. Unidentified concert attendees started spraying the stage with drinks and even hurled plastic bottles in Pusha’s direction! He left the stage unharmed, but several men jumped the barricade to engage in an all-out brawl with Pusha’s entourage. The smackdown looked gnarly, and the Toronto Police Operations Centre confirmed on Facebook that “numerous ppl [were] injured from a fight inside a concert hall in the area” and “performers [were] attacked by a group of ppl.”
Pusha didn’t name drop who was the mastermind behind the drink throwing, although fans on Twitter were quick to speculate that it was Drake. However, it’s possible that the attendees could’ve just been troublemakers! After the fight broke apart, the president of G.O.O.D. Music resumed the stage to perform “Infrared,” another song that features sly disses about his Canadian rival. He then claimed that someone “paid” the concertgoers to “throw beer” at him, as you can watch in the second video below. Despite initial reports of the concert being cancelled, Pusha confirmed that the show went on! He told The Shade Room that he was “untouched in the altercation and continued to perform after they cleared the stage.”
Eyewitnesses soon took to Twitter to describe their wild night. “3 guys rushed the stage and tried to jump Pusha T,” Twitter user @95_TIL_INFINITE claimed. “Pusha’s boys quickly stopped and beat those guys down and then as the guys who were trying to rush Pusha ran away got beat by the crowd as well. 10 mins later cops came and stopped the show.” However, as stated earlier, the concert went on. And another attendee emphasized that Pusha was unscathed, writing, “I was at the Pusha show tn. Pusha NEVER got jumped. Some soft a** goons tried rushing the stage and they got MASH up by Pusha’s security. I’m talking they got STOMPED.”

The brawl followed another controversial concert of Pusha’s at Camp Flog Gnaw in Los Angeles, California on Nov. 10. “F*** Drake” flashed on the visual screen behind the record producer during his set! He immediately blamed the shocking call-out on a behind-the-scenes worker. “Corny a** tech dude fu**ing with my screens at @CampFlogGnaw , I speak for myself and all of you know how I make my statements!!” he tweeted after the festival. “Dissing anybody on screen isn’t part of my show.” Nope, Pusha only throws shade on stage, as tonight has proven!
