Drake's March 12 Show Listed at Karu & Y is a Fake

​Crossfade can exclusively confirm that Drake will not perform at Karu & Y on March 12. According to Drake's manager Cortez Bryant, who spoke with New Times Friday afternoon, the concert continues a trend of shady promoters impersonating members of his team. The story is developing, so keep checking this spot.

A release from Drake's management confirming that the date is bogus is after the jump:

From Drake's management:

It has come to light that an individual or groups of

individuals have been contracting and advertising false bookings of

Aspire/Cash Money/Young Money recording artist Drake for financial

gain. These individuals misrepresent themselves as management

affiliates of Drake in order to secure and pocket deposits for false

bookings and club appearances.

Statement from Drake:

It has been brought to my attention

that false promoters and booking agents are illegally using my name and

likeness to promote concerts and club appearances for their own

financial gain. It is frustrating for me to hear that many of my fans,

who like myself are innocent victims in these scams, have been misled

due to the greed of these promoters. I apologize to any fan that has

been a victim of these circumstances or feels let down by false

advertising. Please be assured that my team and I take these matters

seriously and are actively cooperating with authorities. I cannot thank

my fans enough for supporting my music and all that I do.
