Last weekend, buzzing Los Angeles rapper, Drakeo The Ruler, lost his life. This was due to an altercation that led to him being stabbed in his neck. This occurred backstage at the Once Upon A Time In LA festival, right before Drakeo was set to perform.
Drakeo went on to be sent to a local hospital, in critical condition. He passed away overnight, as hip-hop was stunned about the news. Drakeo’s girlfriend, Noel Bianca, has since spoken on his death, and now, his mother is also doing the same.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Darrylene Corniel confirmed that Drakeo was stabbed in the neck. She also added that she wasn’t able to see him in the hospital, due to this being a homicide situation. Corniel also emphasized that she will do what she can do seek justice for Drakeo.
“He was hit in his neck. I saw him when I went to the hospital. They said it’s a homicide, so I wasn’t able to hug him or kiss him or anything like that. I had to look at him through a window. I need this to be out there. I need people to know. And I do want justice for my son. And I do believe that justice will be served. I will not rest until justice is served.”
Corniel also revealed that people flooded that backstage area, as soon as YG walked. in. Drakeo was with a “small group” of people which included his brother, Devonte Caldwell.
40-60 people walked in after YG entered, and soon, fights started to break out. Corniel also added that tried to fight as well, and soon noticed that Drakeo was stabbed.
Now, Ms. Corniel is planning to sue the venue, Banc of California Stadium in L.A.’s Exposition Park. she emphasized that someone needs to be held accountable, due to this stabbing occurring at an event.
“They let all these people in, and you’re not supposed to have all these people backstage. And your security is supposed to be in place,” Corniel said Monday. “The whole program should have been orchestrated a lot better than what it was. And there should have been more protection. Even if you have metal detectors, even if you pat them down, you let those people come in there. You had more people come in than you were supposed to. And you allowed them to jump my son. You didn’t protect my son.”
Corniel also explained how caring of a person that Drakeo was. He was planning to help the homeless and local children more, as well as simply taking care of his family.
“He planned to do so much. He wanted to help the homeless and do something for children who were needy. And he wanted to take care of his family. That is one of the reasons he got into the industry, because he wanted to help his family. He saw what his mother went through, raising him as a single mother, going to school, getting my degree with no help. Darrell wanted to help everybody.”
