There are many rumors circulating on the internet that Drake will be arrested in Sweden. This came after the rapper came into the country at night on July 14.
Since then, fans on Twitter have been calling for the singer’s release from prison. But people who know the “Hotline Bling” singer say he wasn’t arrested.
Rumors that the rapper has been arrested in Sweden spread like wildfire after an anonymous source said the rapper and his group were arrested at a nightclub on marijuana charges.
After a video of the 35-year-old Baby Blue’s Boeing 767, nicknamed ‘Air Drake’, landing in Sweden was shared on social media, many people believed the rumor to be true. Local news outlets said the rapper was in the popular Stockholm district of Östermalm. Sources also said he went to well-known restaurant Ciccio’s.
But a rep for the rapper said in a statement to The Daily Beast that he was not taken into custody:
Netizens are furious over Drake’s false arrest
It seems the singer’s fans didn’t immediately read the headlines and took to Twitter to speculate. Fans of the singer who really liked him posted memes preparing to free the famous rapper from prison.
Netizens also made jokes like urging US Vice President Joe Biden to get the rapper out of jail. But some people online found it funny that Drake fans asked Biden to help out Drake, who is from Canada. Many people said that Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is the only politician who might be able to help the singer.
People on social media asked Biden to help him get the rapper out of jail as another rapper, A$AP Rocky, faced a similar problem in Sweden. In 2019, the Sundress rapper was jailed for assault. Back then, people online were talking a lot about former President Donald Trump because they wanted him to help get the rapper out of jail.
After the arrest of WNBA star Brittney Griner in Russia, some netizens suspected rumors of false arrests. The 31-year-old was arrested at the airport after it was discovered he was carrying cannabis.
Following the release of his new album Really, Nevermind, the music legend has announced an October World Weekend Music Festival. This will happen between July 28th and August 1st in Toronto, where he lives.
The singer will do shows with Young Money, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Lil Baby and Chris Brown.
Fans can buy tickets on ticketmaster.com starting July 15.
The singer’s latest album, Honestly, Nevermind, went straight to the top of the Billboard 200 when it was released.
