Last night, Toronto rapper Smoke Dawg - who is a Drake affiliate - was shot and killed in broad daylight. That marks the SECOND Toronto rapper tied to Drake that was MURDERED in the last few months.
Smoke Dawg had been building up a lot of BUZZ on the streets of Toronto - and was reportedly planning to GO ON TOUR with Drake this fall. Drake and Smoke were said to be "cordial", ""respectful", and "fans of each others work".
But yesterday someone ran up on Smoke Dogg and killed him. The video of the aftermath fo the shooing is below.
A few months ago, another Drake affiliate - Anthony “Fif” Soares was shot an d killed in a similar manner.
Soares had just arrived at the lobby of a high-rise building on Glamorgan Avenue, near Kennedy and Ellesemere roads, on Sept. 14 when two suspects pulled up in a vehicle and “rushed him,” firing bullets through the glass windows.
That was caught on video too:
According to reports, "three people were shot in the area of Queen Street West and Peter Street, in Toronto’s Entertainment District, shortly before 8:00 p.m. EST. Police said the suspects may have fled in a black SUV or a white car. Two male victims and one female were transported to a local hospital in serious to critical condition; one of the male victims were subsequently pronounced dead."
Associates of Smoke Dawg confirmed on social media that he was the deceased victim.
