Drake Heads Back To The Disabled List

drake Drake Heads Back To The Disabled ListThe up-and-coming MC Drake, a.k.a. Degrassi alum Aubrey Graham, was playing hurt on the “America’s Most Wanted” tour, nursing a torn anterior cruciate ligament (a.k.a. ACL—it’s one of the main ligaments of the knee) that was preventing him from doing a full set. “No one will probably even know I’m injured,” he told MTV News the day before the tour’s kickoff last week, adding that he’d be wearing a brace on stage during his abbreviated set. Well, as anyone who’s ever had a fantasy team knows, the ACL is a very delicate part of the body, and it does not take kindly to being aggravated. And during the tour’s stop in Camden, N.J., on Friday, Drake kicked off the performance of his hit “Best I Ever Had” with a spin that reaggravated the injury and sent him to the floor. Of course, there’s video!

Ow. Owww. Meanwhile, Drake blogged about the incident, and how he’ll spend his recovery in a productive way:

This bottle of Opus One is low but my spirits are high my friends. I am about 2 hours away from Toronto, CA where I will be spending the next chunk of time recovering from a surgery that I now must have. I embarked on this tour with a torn ACL, MCL, and LCL and due to the events that happened the other night lord only knows what other damage I have done. On the bright side I will begin the reflecting and soul searching that its going to take to make this album and my outfit on the night I fell was crack. I will forever push myself beyond the limits despite advice and recommendations given because even with this new found success I am still the kid who wanted this more than anything in the world. Its funny when I read comments from previous fans who have lost interest because of the radio play and exposure I have. I just want to assure anyone reading that nothing has changed on my end. I refuse to get comfortable, I refuse to fall in line and follow anyone elses formulas. I still work as if So Far Gone had never dropped and I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to gain entry to this game.

Well, Drake, let’s just make sure that you actually recover this time—put all your energy into that aforementioned soul-searching. Because really, you don’t want to force people to start having to revise their Yahoo! Answers responses about the parallels between your real life and your Degrassi character!
