Drake’s OVO Store Vandalized With Spray-Painted Message: “Leave L.A.”
Now, Drake's OVO store in Chicago has reportedly been the target of violence.
Drizzy's store location on 9 W. Walton St in the Windy City was hit by vandals who threw a brick through the window, XXL confirmed with sources familiar with the situation on Tuesday (Sept. 30). The incident reportedly happened over the weekend. Video that is purported to be of the men who committed the crime has surfaced. In the clip, one person whose face is not shown can be seen retrieving a handgun before two men start to walk down a street.
“You fucking with the wrong niggas, I don't do that,” one of the men says in the clip.
"They said OVO. OVO, who? Niggas talking this OVO shit," the person continues. "This my city. Stupid muthafuckers. You know what it is."
The actual incident is not captured on camera but the aftermath showing the damage that was reportedly caused by the gunman was documented on Instagram by a passerby. It is unclear if anyone was at the store at the time or if anyone was hurt.

One of Drake's signature stores has just faced a little adversity.
According to a report Hollywood Unlocked published on Friday (Sept. 27), his Los Angeles OVO store has been vandalized.
The gossip website reports that an insider told them that Drizzy allegedly sent a private message to the wife of Kanye West’s former manager Don C., and apparently, that made some people mad.
The vandals reportedly spray-painted "Leave LA" at the OVO store in the middle of the night and recorded a video telling Drake to leave Los Angeles. "Leave L.A. man. We ain't playin' with yo bitch ass, man. Fuck Drake," a person can be overheard saying in the clip.
The site also reported that the rap superstar, who toured Europe earlier this year, also had his home spray-painted. However, reps for Drake deny that claim and say that it was only his store that was spray-painted.
This news comes days after the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certified his 2018 single "God's Plan" as having sold 11 million units. The record is Drizzy's first to be certified diamond. While having your store vandalized is far from alright, Drake's clearly got a lot to be happy about these days.
Drake has yet to comment on the vandalism of his OVO store. XXL has reached out to rapper's rep for comment.
