Drake's Music Career On Hold, Rap Artist To Recover From Surgery

Hip hop's newest prodical son, Drake, is enroute to superstar status in the rap game, too bad he has hit a momentary set back. During a performance infront of a sold out crowd of over 25,000 fans in attendance at the America's Most Wanted Music Festival, the rapper had an unfortunate accident. This undoubtedly dissapoints Drake who will be missed along side of Young Money on the rest of the tour, which still has a number of scheduled performances remaining.

Against the advice of his doctor, Drake embarked on the 21-gig tour with Young Money and LiL Wayne. Four shows deep, the rapper collapsed on stage during a show filled to capacity. Now, Drizzy is headed back to his hometown of Toronto, Canada to have reconstructive surgery on his ACL and MCL. The official announcement came directly Drake's Blogspot, Octobers Very Own.

This is terrible timing for Drake who is in high demand right now. The rapper/singer will be back performing with Young Money soon enough, but is now forced to take extra time out to think about his debut album while he recovers. Drake has gained massive amounts of popularity through lots of exposure from his hit single "Best I Ever Had" which continues to reign on the Billboard top 10. Also, his last mixtape "So Far Gone" continues to garner new fans. Parodies and spoofs have been made and posted all over YouTube, as well as criticisms about the artist who despite all of this has continued to become successful with a good career laid out infront of him.

With a string of upcoming features on tracks and remixes with some of hip hop's hottest stars, and a debut album which is expected to turn some serious heads, the artist still has some ways to go to turn his music business ventures into one successful enterprise. So far, the young star has proven to be quite the rising entrepreneur achieving much of his success on his own with the help of good management (Hip Hop Since 1978).
