Will [artist id="2545682"]Drake[/artist] return to Young Money Presents: The America’s Most Wanted Music Festival ?
The [artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist] protégé took a nasty spill onstage in Camden, New Jersey, on Friday night and had to be carried off. On Saturday night, the tour — which is headlined by Lil Wayne and features Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy Tell’em, Jeremih, Pleasure P and the Young Money family — rolled into the Nikon Theater.
Usually, Drake would lead off the Young Money musical parade, which takes place during Weezy’s set. Instead, Jae Millz led off, followed by Lil Twist, Lil Chuckee, T-Streets, Tyga, Gudda Gudda and Nicki Minaj.
Wayne then announced that Drake would not be performing.
“I must let you know, we had a technical difficulty yesterday,” Wayne said of Drake’s status. “The n—a fell.”
Weezy went on to say Drake injured yet another ligament in his leg. “He goes in surgery tomorrow,” Wayne said. “This is for my n—a Drake.”
Wayne also asked the audience to pray for his friend. Organizers for the tour have not put out a statement yet about Drake’s tour status, but Drizzy did tweet Miss Info after the fall: “All is well … On the bus laying down … Getting surgery this week but I’m walking. Thank my whole YM family for the help. Lion Hearts!”
Last Sunday, on the eve of the tour’s launch, Drake told MTV News he would be performing despite a torn ACL and a prognosis from the doctors that he may not walk again should he reinjure himself too severely.
