A man is fighting for his life after being stabbed during a series of fights that broke out at a Pusha T concert in the city on Tuesday night.
And the Toronto Police confirm that they are aware of online reports that violence at the Danforth Music Hall, which saw the beer released to the American artist and at least one man took the stage, is linked to an ongoing dispute with the Canadian rap rival Drake.

"No investigation begins with the opinion", Const. Const. David Hopkinson said on Wednesday.
"He has to go where the evidence takes us."
"It may be that there is some kind of meat," he acknowledged. "Will that be looked at? Of course it will be watched.
"But researchers will be investigating all possible scenarios."
The chaos, captured in numerous videos published on social networks, broke out around 10 p.m. when numerous people in the crowd suddenly bathed the stage with beer and water, which caused Pusha T to leave the stage.
Several people managed to jump on a metal barricade, with the intention of keeping the fans at a safe distance from the artists, and a fight broke out on the ground in front of the stage.
In the videos of a fanatic, you can see one of the men who climbed the barricade jumping to the stage where he was immediately attacked by the security personnel who kicked him and punched him until he managed to break free and disappear again between the exhausted crowd of about 1,400.
Hopkinson said that it is believed that there were fights inside and outside the place.
And some assistants were trampled on in the failures.
"There were officers and paramedics on the scene who were already working on the event," Hopkinson said, adding that other officers also responded to Danforth Music Hall to deal with the violence.
He said that initially it was believed that 5 people were injured, three were transferred to the hospital with minor injuries and two refused to receive treatment at the site.
However, another victim later showed up at a local hospital with "significant stab wounds," Hopkinson said, adding that he believes the man was left by friends.
"Two officers who were in the hospital for another incident began to investigate and could determine that he was stabbed at the Danforth Music Hall," he said.
"Where it happened, whether inside or outside, we still do not know."
Shortly after the failures on stage, Pusha T replayed a couple of other songs while flanked by security personnel, one of whom was armed with what appears to be a two-for-four video.
Before the show was closed, vibe.com Pusha T reports accused Drake of buying tickets for his show and paying his supporters to cause problems during his performance.
The public dispute between the two rappers has been ongoing for more than a decade, but it warmed up and became personal earlier this year when Pusha T surpassed Drake as father in his song. The history of Adidon and accused Drizzy of using ghostwriters in another song.
Drake responded with his own track of Diss, Duppy Freestyle, taking photos of both Pusha T and Kanye West, who produced the New York rapper's Daytona album.
Meanwhile, police say the wounds of the stabbed victim are life-threatening while hunting their attacker.
"It's in a very bad state," Hopkinson said. "If he survives, it will be an assassination attempt."
