Drake finally breaks his silence on the Astroworld deaths that occured on Friday. He allegedly encouraged festival attendees to jump off the barricade. At least eight people died and hundreds were admitted to the hospital. The ‘God’s Plan’ rapper started to feel pressure from fans as they were wondering when he was going to speak up.
The ‘Nice For What’ rapper issued his first response to the horrific deaths that took place ‘on his watch’. The guilt he and Travis Scott must feel right now. Drake and Travis Scott performed together on ‘Sicko Mode’ and have worked together on various projects. On Friday, it was no different when he made a surprise appearance forTravis Scott’s concert at NRG park & stadium. The tickets to the event started at $349.99 for a two day pass to the festival. A crowd of 50,000 people showed up, and ended up literally crushing one another to the death of 8 people, and sending several fans to the hospital.
Travis Scott responded, and is securing the funeral costs for the victims families. But there was still no word from Drake, until Monday night, after he posted on Instagram.
