Late 28-year-old rapper Drakeo The Ruler was a top rapper from  Los Angeles’ who received recognition from top rappers such as Snoop Dogg and also personalities from the area such as Wack 100.  Over the weekend, he was brutally killed backstage at a music festival in LA, being fatally stabbed in the neck. His death has sent shockwaves through the hip-hop community, and those close to the rapper are suggesting that YG, a fellow LA-based rapper who had beef with Drakeo, could have been implicated in the fight that broke out before Drakeo’s stabbing.As we wait for more information about the circumstances that led to Drakeo’s killing, a candlelight vigil was recently held for the late rapper in his community. Fans of Mr. Mosley spelled out “Drakeo” with candles and gathered to honor the life of the great young star. Hundreds could be seen looking on and taking part in the ceremony.

Rest in peace, Drakeo. Watch the candlelight vigil footage below.

The late 28-year-old Drakeo The Ruler, real name Darrell Caldwell, was with a small group backstage at the time of the fight, including his younger brother, rapper Ralfy The Plug. According to witnesses she spoke with, Drakeo’s mom says people “swamped” her son at the same time YG walked into the same area.

“They said there were, like, 40 to 60 people,” said Corniel. “Everything just happened so quickly. They started trying to jump them. [Drakeo’s brother] was trying to fight, but when he turned around, he could see his brother with blood gushing out of him. He was like, ‘Did they stab you?’ It was like, there were so many of them.”

She believes that pride played a role in her son’s murder, and she signaled that she believes venue security failed their job that night.

“We plan to sue,” she said. “This happened backstage at an event. Someone has to be held accountable. […] It is such a shame how much jealousy and envy can make people stoop to such low tactics to try to destroy another individual because of fame and progress. When you start getting up there, people start getting intimidated. So, I believe, once his platform started going higher, people started getting upset. […] 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. 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.”

However, after this reported in the media, Wack 100 cleared the air about the scenario as he blasted HipHopDX, Rolling Stone, and cops for implicating his artist, The Game, into the situation. Check out the video below.
