The incident arrives less than a month after Durk was hospitalized for severe dehydration, forcing him to cancel tour dates as he focused on his recovery.

"Since I'm still awaiting to get full clearance from my doctors to travel and perform again, I have no other choice but to cancel my headlining Rolling Loud performance," he wrote at the time. "While I'm home resting, I am looking forward to my two homecoming shows on the 11th & 12th in Chicago. For the rest of the the [sic] country, I'll be announcing new dates soon. #StillHealing"
