Drake is having stranger and stranger objects thrown at him onstage. At a recent show at Madison Square Garden in New York, the Canadian rapper called out a fan who tossed their purse at him during his performance.
“Why would you throw your purse up here? You don’t have a life?” Drake joked, picking the purse up. “You don’t have, like, a life that you need to attend to? Your I.D. and s**t?”
“Why would you throw this? This was a terrible idea. Here take this back. You don’t have, like, work to go to tomorrow or something? You just throwing your purse up here and s**t? You really didn’t think that through, at all,” he added.
It’s not the first time Drake has had an odd object thrown at him on his It’s All a Blur Tour with 21 Savage. During a show in Brooklyn on Friday, someone tossed a 36G-size bra onstage.
“36G?” Drake joked. “Locate this woman immediately.”
Drake also had a vape pen thrown at him last week, and earlier this month someone threw a phone at him, causing him to momentarily halt the performance.
Other artists have also recently experienced a rash of objects being thrown at them onstage while performing, including Bebe Rexha, who received a black eye and stitches when a fan threw a cell phone at her face.
Drake recently called out a fan mid-performance for hurling a purse onstage. The God’s Plan rapper was performing one of his three sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden in New York on Wednesday when he took a moment to address the bizarre occurrence. “Why would you throw your purse up here? You don’t have a life?” the 36-year-old quipped, while holding up the bag by its strap. “You don’t have, like, a life that you need to attend to? Your I.D. and s**t!”
Drake continued, “Why would you throw this? This was a terrible idea. Here, take this back. You don’t have, like, work to go to tomorrow or something? You just throwing your purse up here and s**t? You really didn’t think that through, at all.”
The incident comes just a week after a fan threw her bra onstage at the Hotline Bling star during his show at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center on 21 July.
During the same run of shows at the venue, Drake slammed another fan who threw a vaping device at him, saying, “No way you’re taking life seriously if you think I’m gonna pick this vape up and vape with you at the f**king Barclays Center.”
Elsewhere during Drake’s Madison Square Garden concert, the rapper confirmed that his new album, For All the Dogs, is officially on the way.
“I will be back soon. I have an album dropping for you in, like, two weeks or some s**t. But until then, just know, you’re always with me and I’m always thinking of you. Everything I do is for you. Every time I step in that booth, I hope I make you proud,” he told the crowd.
