Video: Drake Sets Date For Knee Surgery

He took to Twitter on Sunday (August 16) and sent word that he’ll be undergoing surgery on his knee — which suffered three torn ligaments — on September 8.

“In the studio … working on Thank Me Later … magic … surgery September 8th,” he wrote. “Then we’re back in business.”

Drake spoke to MTV News recently about his second injury, which he said rivaled the pain of his initial mishap. In June the rapper tore his ACL, MCL and LCL while playing basketball. He was set to join Wayne, Young Jeezy and Soulja Boy Tell’em as one of the America’s Most Wanted headliners. After his injury, though, he shortened his set from a full production to a reduced medley of hits during Wayne’s time. But excitement got the best of Drake when he ran across the stage at Camden’s Susquehanna Bank Center during his performance of “Best I Ever Had.”

“The stride that I had, I planted with my right and I had a brace on,” he recalled of the moment. “I would say it was borderline more painful than the initial tear. It was bad. It buckled, popped. I was down. I remember slapping the ground. I couldn’t believe it. I saw the lights coming down. [And I was thinking] ‘Did I just fall?’ I was in so much pain then that I didn’t care at the time. They actually cut a nice pair of jeans that I had, all the way up. Bad. But it’s all part of my story. I feel like maybe it needed to happen. I came out on that tour for one reason and one reason only — I didn’t show up for the money or the fact that I even needed it right now. I showed up there for the fans that genuinely saw me on the tour [bill] and said, ‘That’s why I’m going.’ “
