According to the Los Angeles Times, Drakeo was attacked by a group of people but no one has yet been arrested.

The publication says he as “pretty badly hurt”. It’s thought he was in the backstage area when the attack took place.

And we later reported that the rapper had died from his injuries, saying multiple unnamed sources had confirmed his passing.

In a statement on Twitter, the Los Angeles Police Department said: “There has been an incident at the Once Upon A Time in LA festival at the Banc of California.

“The festival has concluded early. LAPD will be in the area assisting CHP with the investigation.”

Live Nation later urged attendees to head to the exits as videos later posted to social media showed festival goers scrambling as they attempted to climb over a fence.

An event spokesperson added 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.”
