According to MissInfo:
Drake and Lil Wayne were performing “Best I Ever Had” when Drake was moving across the stage and did a spin move…he must have turned his already-injured knee while spinning, because Drake suddenly collapsed on the stage. “He put his head down because he was in so much pain,” and then 4 guys ran out on the stage and had to carry him off. Lil Wayne was left onstage in a state of confusion.
Sources say that Weezy then said to the stunned crowd, “Damn, I knew that n—a’s knee was bad, but I didn’t know it was that bad! I thought he was just in a wheelchair on T.V.” [really?!]
Then Wayne had to keep the show going, so he performed “Mrs. Officer,” with Shanell and T. Streets (normally, Drake performs the song with Wayne.), and then “Every Girl In the World,” again, sans Drake.
Meanwhile, backstage, paramedics cordoned off a section and were examining the injured star.
The day after the fall, Wayne announced that Drake would not be performing. “I must let you know, we had a technical difficulty yesterday,” Wayne said of Drake’s status. “The n—a fell.” Weezy went on to say Drake injured yet another ligament in his leg. “He goes in surgery tomorrow,” Wayne said. “This is for my n—a Drake.”
Wayne also asked the audience to pray for his friend. Organizers for the tour have not put out a statement yet about Drake’s tour status, but Drizzy did tweet Miss Info after the fall: “All is well … On the bus laying down … Getting surgery this week but I’m walking. Thank my whole YM family for the help. Lion Hearts!” (source)
Drake recently took to his blog to pour out his heart to his fans about the incident. Check out what he had to say below:
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.

See you soon.
