Police Shut Down Drake Show In California

Drake says that the police were behind his shortened set in Irvine.

Drake's "Club Paradise" tour hit a snag on Tuesday (May 8), as the rapper's show was cut short.

The Young Money emcee was performing as scheduled at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, California, but was forced to end the show early due to orders from the police, reports HipHopWired.com.

The show, which featured J. Cole, 2 Chainz, French Montana, Meek Mill, and Waka Flocka Flame, continues with a tour in Phoenix, Arizona on May 10. As for the shortened show, Drake reached out to fans on Twitter to provide an explanation:

Police made me cut the show short but I love you all for rocking with me Irvine!

In recent weeks, shows by the L.E.P. Bogus Boys and Young Jeezy were met with interference from authorities, though in Jeezy's case, it was reportedly because a concert-goer was shot.

      I guess only the stories about rappers from New York City are the real ones, huh? You need to get all of that hate out of your blood.

    The police must always shut down Drake's concers. In fact every cash money show.

  • lol

    the police couldn't stand that music any longer

  • frontdoor334

    JCole should do his remix to Drake's "successful" song, and he'll sing I'll always, I'll always be "Unsuccessfullllllll"

  • darealizondarize

    I wunda if he'll even give JCole a mic to rap on stage with or he'll just make him be a backup dancer

  • dentaldamboy

    It's nice to see a major superstar like Drake giving unsuccessful artists like J Cole a chance to go on tour and see what the rock life is all about. I think that Meek Mill will blow up and when he goes on tour, he will probably take J Cole along to open up the shows and help with equipment and stuff.

    • yocuz

      You guys forget that Drakes first album didnt go platinum.

    • Anonymous

      Sony lost millions of dollars from the J Cole album, so he is a flop. He couldn't make it on his on tour, so now he opening for Drake, to get some money and fans......lol

    • ETK

      ^hey buddy, stick up your ass much? all he did was commend Drake for bigging J.Cole and bringing him along on tour. better than him ushering Tyga or Gudda Gudda or any other YMCMB oaf granted it was silly to say J.Cole is unsuccessful.. his album went gold and he has a plat single, he's doing well so far

      @stupid kids, They're one of those people that just make you sick to your stomach. Make you wanna puke. They're the reason why mainstream rap/hip-hop is what it is today. Dumb, young(sadly quite often older persons), simple-minded, etc..., Whom have no grasp of reality. They're not even worthy of a hip-hop/rap "fan" title. More like blind sheep. They don't even understand the essence of hip-hop. If they did they would know that drake is only r&b & pop and will never mean as much as J COLE does to the real hip-hop/rap community.
