Drake Pays Tribute to Mother & Daughter Killed After His Show

Laticha Bracero and Alyssa Cordova were leaving Drake and J. Cole's tour stop in St. Louis on Feb. 13 when they were hit by a speeding car.

Drake is sending love to a mother and daughter who were tragically killed after his concert at Enterprise Center in St. Louis, Mo.

“You never know what somebody else’s reality will be when they walk out of this building,” the rapper told the crowd in Buffalo, N.Y., on Wednesday night (Feb. 28), according to TMZ. “Rest in peace to that young mother and her child,” he added, encouraging fans to show love to the strangers around them.
