Despite Drake’s recent involvement (or not) in a physical altercation with Chris Brown and camp, the show goes on. On Saturday Drake’s Club Paradise tour stopped at Jones Beach in NY where he performed in front of a crowd of 15,000 yelling fans. Earlier this week he promised them a second chance at Summer Jam. Unfortunately redoing Summer Jam didn’t mean YMCMB artists Nicki Minaj or Lil Wayne would come out as special guests. But Drake snagged the hottest upcoming rappers in the game–2 Chainz, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill and A$AP Rocky–to open his show. Cam’ron, Juelz Santana and Jim Jones of Dipset also reunited. “This is something that I gotta do for New York,” he said right before bringing out the “We Fly High” rapper who was later joined by his former Harlem group members. Even on stage Drake remained tight lipped about the now infamous Chris Brown brawl. But per PopDust.com, he was subliminally referencing the incident that we hope doesn’t spiral out of control.
Before launching into one of his songs Drake explains a hypothetical situation, “You were having a good night so far, you done had a couple drinks, you done met a couple thangs, and then the n*gga in the corner start looking at you funny and you feel a motherf*ckin’ way about it.” He continued on, “And then somebody going to the bathroom bumps you with their elbow and you like, ‘What the f*ck?’” We guess Drake has to prove he’s “hard” as to advance his street cred. Stick to the music Drizzy. And are you as excited as we were to see Dipset performing together again?
