According to emerging reports, Pusha T was attacked on stage during a show at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall. From videos surfacing on Instagram, we learn that a group threw water, beer and paint at the rapper before trying to rush the stage.

It appears that security was able to subdue many of the group members before an individual made it onto the platform — only to be met by Pusha’s crew. After the attack, though Pusha himself doesn’t appear to be touched, he left the stage to wait for the group to be apprehended by police. Moments after, Pusha returned to perform “I Don’t Like” and “The Story of Adidon.” Sometime after the altercation, Pusha addressed the crowd and allegedly claimed that people were “paid” to throw beer at him. There has yet to be an official statement regarding the attack. HYPEBEAST has reached out to Pusha and Drake’s representatives for comment.

Pitchfork reports that a spokesperson from the Toronto Police Department confirmed that they received a call about an assault in progress at the event with reports that performers at the venue were attacked onstage “by a number of people.” Three people were sent to the hospital in connection with the incident with non-life threatening injuries.

Catch clips of the attack below and stay tuned for more details as the story develops.

In case you missed it, Pusha T blamed a “corny tech dude” who worked for Camp Flog Gnaw for the Drake diss visuals that appeared during the rapper’s set. The words “Fuck Drake” flashed on the screen behind Pusha during his performance, which the Virginia vet later tweeted that he didn’t approve of. “Dissing anybody on screen isn’t part of my show,” he wrote.

Previously the beef between Pusha T and Drake was reopened when Drizzy addressed Pusha and “The Story of Adidon” in a conversation on LeBron James’ HBO show. Last month, Pusha went on The Joe Budden Podcast and revealed that the source of information for “Adidon” was Drake’s longtime producer Noah “40” Shebib.
