Drake’s Security Guard Shot Outside Rapper’s Toronto Home


The victim was taken to the hospital, but paramedics said his injuries were not believed to be life-threatening

Drake‘s security guard was injured in a shooting outside the rapper’s home in Toronto early Tuesday morning, a source close to the situation confirmed to Rolling Stone. Drake, however, was uninjured in the incident.

According to the CBC, it’s believed the victim was shot in a drive-by attack, suffering a gunshot wound to his upper chest. He was found unconscious and taken to the hospital for emergency surgery.

On X, Toronto police said they received reports of a shooting at around 2:09 a.m. ET in the city’s upscale Bridle Path neighborhood. The suspect reportedly fled in a vehicle, but no descriptions of either the person or the car were provided. 

While the motive of the shooting is unclear, it comes in the midst of Drake and Kendrick Lamar’s ongoing and increasingly hostile feud. Drake’s Toronto home even figured into one of Lamar’s most recent tracks, “Not Like Us,” with the cover art featuring a satellite photograph of the Bridle Path mansion, dotted with markers used for the homes of registered sex offenders. 

While Drake and Lamar have been in not-so-quiet competition with each other for years, their simmering feud erupted earlier this year when Lamar called him out on Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That.” Drake responded a few weeks later with “Push Ups,” setting off a deluge of diss tracks filled with increasingly vicious bars and some unsettling allegations. 


The feud arguably took a turn towards the harrowing and bleak with the release of “Family Matters,” in which Drake repeatedly claims Lamar has been violent towards his fiancé. Lamar quickly responded with “Meet the Grahams,” in which he claimed Drake has a secret 11-year-old daughter (which Drake denied on social media) while also accusing the rapper of being a sex criminal and a gambling addict. 

Lamar’s “Not Like Us” followed the next day with lyrics pertaining to Drake’s very alleged relationships with underage girls (to say nothing of the final verse that accuses Drake of being a hip-hop colonizer). Drake fired what is, at least as of now, the final salvo with “The Heart Part 6,” in which he rebuffed both the secret daughter allegation and the “certified pedophile” line in “Not Like Us.”
