Wheelchair Jimmy Drake?

Everyone has been buzzing about up-and-coming rapper, Drake, painful fall. Drake and Lil Wayne was performing at the "America's Most Wanted" show in Camden, NJ when the rapper injured his knee for the second time. If you watch the video he really took a fall, and that shit look like it HURT! Poor Drizzy had to be carried off the stage. Lil Wayne then came out and I guess try to keep the crowd in a chipper mood. Darn, and he was about to perform "Best I Ever Had". Too bad the worst case scenario had to happen. =/. However, just last week he did tell MTV that he would still be going thru with the shows even with his injury. Peep what he said:

I didn’t really get any approval from my doctor, but I made a personal decision 48 hours ago that I’d be letting a lot of people down if I didn’t show up and at least show them I’m there for them… I’m not doing my own set. That’s one thing I have to apologize to my fans about. It’s too much of a risk, if I hit that wrong turn [doing] 30 minutes every night. If I tear my ACL again, the doctors say I might not be able to walk again. I have to be cautious.

Even with pushing himself to the limit, you gotta respect his hard work. I guess everything will pay off in the end. Here's the video that made me flinch and put on my sad face =(.
