Left and right, other artists in the industry have been choosing sides, and now, Rick Ross is the latest big name involved.

Rick Ross was attacked in Canada after playing a Kendrick Lamar song at his show.

After playing the Ignite Music Festival in Vancouver on the night of June 31, 2024, Rick Ross made the decision to close out their set by blasting "Not Like Us" by Kendrick Lamar, a Drake diss track that calls the Canadian rapper a pedophile. This angered a group of around 15 Drake fans known as the "BC demons," who cornered Rick and his crew after the show.

What began as a verbal altercation quickly devolved into a brawl, according to a video shared by TMZ. While there's currently no update on the state of Rick's health or whether he was severely injured during the fight, it definitely looks like he may have been punched directly in the face.

Adding a bit of fuel to the fire, it seems that Drake himself liked the video of Rick's assault on Instagram, as well.

Fans in the comments had plenty to say about the situation, with one warning, "[Drake] better stay out of [Los Angeles] and [Florida]."

"This is Canada. Don’t you know Drake is our future prime minister?!" another fan commented.
