Drake is reacting to the “mass casualty” that took place at Travis Scott‘s Astroworld Festival Concert.

On Saturday (November 6), it was confirmed that eight people had died and hundreds were injured after the audience surged towards the stage during the 30-year-old rapper’s performance the night before, leading to a stampede in the crowd due to the mass panic.

Drake, 35, performed alongside Travis during the festival on Friday night.

On Monday (November 8), Drake released a statement saying his “heart is broken” over the tragedy.

Drake concluded his message by writing, “I will continue to pray for all of them, and will be of service in any way I can. May God be with you all.”
