DJ Drama's Podcast Premieres July 20

Last month, it was reported that DJ Drama was the victim of an alleged robbery in Toronto, resulting in his chains being taken from his neck. Allegedly, Drake fans carried out the robbery, then indirectly told him "That’s what you f***ing get for not checking in." "Shout out boy, Drizzy, eh? Triple G’s, you know how we rock!," they added.

Two masked men showed off what appeared to be his jewelry in a clip. It was later rumored that the chains were on their way back to their rightful owner, however, according to Top5, it allegedly cost him a hefty fee. "$120K for the chain back, that’s a good deal," he wrote. DJ Drama later denied this, simply commenting a cap emoji under the report.
