Rick Ross jumped by Canadian gangsters after performing “Not Like Us” at Vancouver show

Rick Ross jumped by Canadian gangsters after performing “Not Like Us” at Vancouver show

The problems between Rick Ross and Drake led to physical violence, even though Drake had nothing to do with the attack.

On Sunday (June 30), the Miami rapper was booked to perform at Vancouver’s Ignite Music Festival, where he decided to perform Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us.” Rozay left the stage while the scathing diss track was still playing, prompting a group of gangsters to confront the artist. The men pressured Ross and his team as tensions began to rise.

Video footage shows a heated argument between the MMG boss before one of the men stabbed the rapper, turning the scuffle into a brawl. Members of Ross’ team could be seen being pushed and falling to the ground as the Canadian goons continued to harass and mock them for their song choice. At one point, the clip shows an MMG affiliate appearing to be passed out on the festival grounds after apparently taking a hit from the chaotic Canucks.

VIBE has reached out to Ross’ representatives for comment but has not yet received a response.

Ross jumped into the middle of Drizzy and K. Dot’s feud to air his grievances with the Toronto-born artist. While it seemed random at the time, Ross would later reveal that Drake sent French Montana a cease and desist letter for a record widely speculated to be the unreleased track “Splash Brothers.” Their track featured all three men and had Drizzy taking a shot at Kanye West, alluding to the idea that he had sexual relations with Kim Kardashian.

The song was supposed to be released in March 2024, but Drake reportedly put a legal stop to it with a cease and desist order. Rick Ross rapped about it on his ‘Champagne Moments’ record, confirming the rumor that Drake legally prevented the record containing his verse from seeing the light of day.

“I unfollowed you, n**a, ’cause you sent the f**king cease and desist to French Montana, n**a. You sent the police, n**a, hated on my dog ​​project. That ain’t the same white boy I seen, n**a, when we made them early records, n**a,” Ross taunted him during the song’s outro.
