Chaos broke out at Danforth Music Hall in Toronto's East end last night during a Pusha T concert. The American rapper, known for his longstanding beef with Drake, took the stage in front of 1,400 audience members. Things took a violent turn during Pusha T's "Infrared," in which the rapper takes shots at Drake.
In the video, concert-goers are seen throwing their drinks at Pusha T while he performs the song. Shortly afterwards, a group of audience members attempt to charge the stage, at which point a violent group fight breaks out on and just below the stage.

According to Pitchfork, Toronto Police allege that they received a call last night about an assault at the venue and that performers were attacked "by a number of people."
Emergency crews arrived on scene just after 10 PM and transported three people to the hospital. Police did not specify whether those injured were performers or fans, but the injuries are said to be non-life threatening.

- numerous ppl injured from a fight inside a concert hall in the area
- performers attacked by a group of ppl
-EMS/Police on scene
-closures: Broadview/Danforth to Playter Blvd#GO2140689
But, the story gets even more twisted. Allegedly, Pusha T told the crowd that audience members were "paid" to throw their drinks at him. Many people now speculate that those audience members were paid off by Drake himself.
One thing's clear - rappers that have beef with the 6ix god are seriously taking their chances by stepping on his home turf.
