DJ Drama might have run into some trouble with some Toronto goons, who are claiming to have snatched his chain for “not checking in” with them after a recent performance.
In a video posted on Saturday (June 10), three masked men — who all appear to be wearing matching jeans and T-shirts — can be seen holding what appears to be the Philly DJ’s iced-out Generation Now chain, while also shouting out Drake.
“This is — that’s what you fuckin’ get for not checkin’ in!” one masked robber says as he flashes what appears to be a Rolex watch. “Shout out boy, Drizzy, eh? Triple G’s, you know how we rock! Braap! Braap!”
The three goons then flash some cash seemingly as further proof of their successful snatching spree.

The incident allegedly happened after DJ Drama’s performance at the popular Century nightclub on King Street in Toronto. An eyewitness who was reportedly at the scene of the attack claimed that the snatching happened inside the club itself.
“A man messaged the betting group last night saying “Biiiiiiig fight at my club tonight lol. Man’s jumped dj drama and this guy is still GUSHING blood like 20mins later” and then another man called me saying he witnessed it live,” he wrote. No actual footage from the alleged attack has yet turned up.
HipHopDX has reached out to DJ Drama directly for comment, but as of press time, he has not responded to the request.
The GGGs shouting out the 6 God seems a little curious considering DJ Drama and Drake squashed their longtime beef last month.
Many were surprised to see Drake appear on the tracklist for Jack Harlow’s sophomore album, Come Home The Kids Miss You. Harlow is signed to Drama’s Generation Now label, but the DJ clarified on Twitter when the album dropped on Friday (May 6) that the beef between him and the Toronto mogul had finally been laid to rest.
“We gotta stop this narrative lol,” Drama tweeted. “Me & Drake been put that to rest. Grown men shit, and beyond that Jack & Drake cultivated they own relationship. Now erybody go stream that ‘Churchill Downs’!!”
The Drake and DJ Drama feud dates all the way back to 2015 when word spread that the Gangsta Grillz mixtape king had allegedly been the one to tell Meek Mill that Drake hadn’t penned his own verse for the Philly rapper’s 2015 single “R.I.C.O.”
The ghostwriting allegations surrounding the Dreams Worth More Than Money cut would ultimately snowball into a now-notorious beef between the two rappers, which culminated in Drizzy penning his Grammy-nominated diss track “Back to Back.”
The two rappers have since settled their differences, but there long remained indications from both Drake and Drama’s camp that the pair had no interest in repairing their relationship. Drake seemed to take aim at Drama on DJ Khaled’s 2016 single “For Free,” and when Drama sat down for a Drink Champs interview with N.O.R.E in 2021, he confirmed the OVO head retaliated against him at one point by having sexual relations with his girl.
“We’ve had small talk — we’ve talked,” Drama told The Breakfast Club in 2021. “We haven’t seen each other since the ‘tiff’ but we’ve been in communication lightly. At some point, I’m sure we’ll get the opportunity to sit down and really just build. I feel like he’s past that and we’re past that. That’s where it’s at really.”
