The Pusha T concert at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall was shut down tonight after a fight broke out onstage.  

Shocking video of the melee was quickly posted to YouTube, which shows Pusha T and his entourage targeted with punches. According to witnesses, the show was canceled after about 20 minutes.  

A post from Toronto Police Operations Centre confirms performers were attacked and numerous people were injured as a result of fighting inside the concert hall. It's unclear if the hip-hop star and GOOD Music president was injured in the clash.

 

Local news channel CP 24 posted on Twitter that “three people taken to hospital with minor injuries after fight took place at Danforth Music Hall. Officers said performers were "attacked by a group of people.”

Pusha T and Drake have, of course, a long-standing beef with each releasing diss tracks. So when Pusha visited Drizzy's hometown, all that bad blood was ready to spill over. According to Pitchfork, Pusha addressed the crowd and alleged that people were “paid” to throw beer at him.
