News of the $20 Million lawsuit hit online today after being announced on KTLA 5 news. Popular Instagram channel @OnthisdayinHipHop posted a video of the news segment. Drakeo The Ruler’s family has filed a law suit against Live Nation, one of the largest concert event organizers in the nation.
The law suit reportedly claims that Live Nation failed to secure the venue space properly, which resulted in Drakeo being stabbed by a group of rival gang members. All though Drakeo was not a gang member himself, he was associated with people that had ties to the streets.
The “Flu Flamming” rapper rose to notoriety after being arrested for a murder at a house party. Ultimately he would beat the charges and be released from jail. After his release Drakeo would go on to drop several popular songs that would add to his emerging buzz as a top new talent in Los Angeles, even getting a feature from Drake.
The Once Upon a Time in LA festival was being organized and promoted by Live Nation and Bobby D Presents. Throughout the night there were questions as to the setup of the venue, and the lack of security at the venue. Apparently Drakeo showed up to the festival which he was scheduled to perform at. He didn’t have a security detail with him and his team. And was immediately confronted by rivals he had issues with over a diss song he did called “Ingleweird”. Which seemingly was taken as disrespect to the entire city of Inglewood.
In the video clips that were posted online as the fight was taking place, you can see Drakeo and his Stinc Team being backed down by a large group of people. It looks as if most of his crew left out a gate, which left Drakeo surrounded by his attackers. He would end up being stabbed in the head and neck, and succumbed to his injuries the same night.
Rest in Peace to Drakeo The Ruler, condolences to his family.
