The 31-year-old rapper and the hip hop music trio – made up of Takeoff, Quavo and Offset – have postponed their ‘The Aubrey and the Three Amigos Tour’ by 15 days to ensure they can deliver a “high standard” on the road.
A rep for Drake said: “In order to deliver the high standard tour experience our fans expect and deserve, we have made the necessary decision to slightly adjust the beginning of ‘The Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour’ schedule.”
A number of performances have been rescheduled, but their planned show in Chicago on August 20 has been axed, but those who bought tickets for original dates are entitled to a refund.
Offset – who is married to Cardi B, who welcomed their baby daughter Kulture earlier this month – was arrested for gun and drug possession last week after police officers said they witnessed him performing an improper lane change.
But his lawyer Drew Findling believes he was “targeted” by police.
He said: “It’s a common theme. We’re talking about a young, African-American man driving a shiny, beautiful luxury car and clad in designer clothes and watches and jewellery.
“Unfortunately people in his genre become a target for law enforcement who think that lifestyle is connected to some illegal activity … and that is a sad statement.”
Cardi is also said to believe Offset was “targeted” for being a “rich, successful black rapper”.
A source told TMZ: “She thinks he was pulled over for doing nothing more than being a rich, successful black rapper.
“She doesn’t think he broke any laws because he doesn’t own any firearms. It was a targeted attack from the hip-hop cops.”
