Today in Hip Hop News, new and vital information was revealed by Darrylene Corniel, the mother of Drakeo The Ruler, regarding the cause of his death during an interview with Rolling Stone on Monday, December 20, 2021.

As we know it, on Saturday, December 18, 2021, the sad and tragic death of rapper Drakeo The Ruler occurred after suffering fatal stab wounds at the Once Upon A Time Festival in L.A. According to reports, the L.A rapper was attacked by multiple men while backstage, and one of the men fatally stabbed the rapper multiple times.

Darrylene Corniel, the L.A. rapper’s mother, stated in an interview that she plans to take legal action as she reveals the following information.

Corniel shared that her son was backstage with a small group of people, including his younger brother, Devonte Caldwell, more popularly known as Ralfy The Plug. According to a witness, a swarm of people arrived backstage at the same time as the rapper and YG.

There were about 40-60 people in the vicinity, when members of an unconfirmed incoming group “swarmed” her sons and a smaller group of people they were with.

“Everything just happened so quickly” .”They started to jump on them”, she told Rolling Stone.

Drakeo’s mother added that her younger son attempted to protect his older brother. "He was trying to fight, but when he turned around, he could see his brother with blood gushing out of him," she explained. "He was like, 'Did they stab you?' It was like, there were so many of them."

She further adds that due to Drakeo’s death being reportedly ruled a homicide, she had to stand and look at her son through a window. No contact. Could not touch his deceased body presumably because due to it being a homicide, evidence couldn’t be tampered with.

Additionally, Corniel loudly expresses that she will not rest until her son’s killers are brought to justice. She plans to sue the venue as well given that they could have done better regarding security. “Someone has to be held accountable,” she said.

The motive for the L.A rapper’s death is still unknown to police, but his mother believed it stemmed from “jealousy and envy”.
