Headlined by Snoop Dogg and performances by Ice Cube, 50 Cent and more, Drakeo was also scheduled to perform. He was 28 years old.

According to the Los Angeles Times, paramedics responded to a call about a stabbing around 8:40 PM. The victim was taken to the hospital in critical condition and was identified as  Darrell Caldwell, known as Drakeo the Ruler in the music scene. Caldwell was reportedly attacked by a group of people at the music festival.

A Live Nation spokesperson said in a statement, “There was an altercation in the roadway backstage. Out of respect for those involved and in coordination with local authorities, artists and organizers decided not to move forward with remaining sets so the festival was ended an hour early.”

Drake, who collaborated with Drakeo earlier this year on “Talk To Me” took to Instagram Stories his feelings on the tragic loss. Nah man this shit isn’t right for real wtf are we doing. Always picked my spirit up with your energy. RIP Drakeo.”

Cardi B Sparks New Album Rumors



Cardi B

Last month, Cardi B was on Instagram Live where she was very honest about why she has yet to release her sophomore album.

“I know y’all been saying that I gotta drop this album, that I’ve been lacking,” she said. “I’ma have to be real with y’all: I feel like I have gotten too comfortable because I’m just a mom! I’ve been having a lot of anxiety ’cause I know right after I drop my album, I have to go on tour and I have bad separation anxiety from my kids.”

“And then when it comes to music, I just feel like I don’t like anything,” she continued. “I feel like I got so many songs and I don’t like nothing, I feel like nothing is good enough. I got so much fucking money saved up that I just be like, ‘Whatever.’”

She added: “Now, making music to me has become a job that gives me anxiety because everybody just critiques everything that I do. Sometimes you just don’t want to do something that gives you that much anxiety, so I just be like freezing myself. But I have to let that go, I have to release more music. I have to just go out there.”

However this month, the Bronx native was spotted in the studio with Brooklyn Johnny. Brooklyn Johnny is A&R that played an instrumental role in bringing Cardi and Kodak Black to Atlantic Records.

“Y’ALL READY?! #CardiB,” he wrote in the caption.

Back in 2018, Cardi B dropped her debut album, Invasion of Privacy. The album featured contributions from  Migos21 SavageSZA and more, debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 after moving 225,000 units in the first-week. Since then, she’s dropped les — “WAP” with Megan Thee Stallion and “Hot Shit” featuring Kanye West and Lil Durk.
