Cole think he Drizzy Drake, he got his own plane, he raps. Moneybagg Yo caps off the big-money crime by enjoying a lavish feast with a table full of lady friends. Scared Money arrives on the heels of serious allegations levied against YG, who is accused of orchestrating Drakeo The Rulers murderat the Once Upon a Time in L.A. festival in December 2021. Both Drakeos mother and associate K7 have pointed the finger at the Compton nativefor setting up the fatal stabbing. However, as the $60 million wrongful death lawsuitfiled against Live Nation on behalf of Drakeos five-year-old son states, there is no evidence to indicate that YG had anything to do with the events that would lead to Mr. Caldwells murder.
