Drake issues plea to media after Kendrick Lamar feud and intruders at Toronto home

Drake has appealed to the media following what has been a controversial fortnight for the rapper.

In recent weeks, the Canadian star has made headlines for his feud with Kendrick Lamar, which saw both men launch personal attacks at each other. A few days later, a drive-by shooting occurred outside Drake’s residence.

On Tuesday, May 7, a security guard was shot in the chest and police found him unconscious when they arrived at the scene.

The guard was said to be at the gate in front of the property when he was shot at around 2am. He was then transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.

A suspect fled in a vehicle, police said. Authorities could not confirm whether Drake was home at the time of the shooting, but said the rapper’s team was cooperating with the investigation.

A few days later, an intruder attempted to break into Drake’s mansion, and another was spotted outside the residence a few hours later. The second intruder got into an altercation with security guards and was taken to hospital with serious injuries, but his life is not in danger.

On Saturday (May 11), the Toronto Police Service said TMZ a third intruder was escorted off the rapper’s property.

Drake has now referenced the frenzied interest in his residency on Instagram via a message to Canadian news agency CP24.

He wrote: “Can we discuss flight times for the helicopter over the house because I’m not going to lie, I’m trying to sleep. Anytime after 3 p.m. works just fine for me.

The incidents came days after his rival Lamar doxxed Drake’s house in a diss rant against him amid an ongoing feud between the two rappers. Lamar created three similar diss songs about Drake in just 36 hours.

A rivalry between two of the world’s biggest rappers has been brewing for years, has been reignited in recent weeks thanks to surprise tracks.

The feud between the two stars began a month ago when Lamar attacked the Canadian rapper and J Cole in his song “First Person Shooter.”

Drake responded with a diss track accusing Lamar of domestic violence. Lamar in turn accused Drake of having a secret daughter.

In another song titled “Not Like Us,” the “Humble” rapper calls Drake a “certified pedophile” and makes several references to alleged interactions with younger women.
