Rapper Drakeo the Ruler has reportedly died following a fatal incident backstage at the Once Upon a Time in L.A. Festival.

According to reports the 28-year-old was stabbed in the neck just before he was set to perform.

The L.A Fire Department confirmed that a man was transported to a local hospital in critical condition after being stabbed around 8:39 p.m. local time, who later succumbed to his wounds.

The festival promoters released a statement:

“There was an altercation in the roadway backstage. Out of respect for those involved and in coordination with local authorities, artists and organisers decided not to move forward with remaining sets so the festival was ended an hour early.”
