Drake‘s priorities right now: OVO Fest and finishing his high school diploma. Oh, and somewhere between the two is showing the world his love for Aaliyah by executive producing her posthumous album. But last night it was all about giving back to his hometown, the 416. Toronto, Canada was in for a treat with a lively two-hour set at the OVO Fest from the rapper who’d dropped the new track “Enough Said” featuring Aaliyah hours before his show. In all white Drizzy performed a range of his catalog including “Take Care,” “Lord Knows,” “Over,” “Practice,” “We’ll Be Fine,” “Marvin’s Room” and “Headlines.” The cherry with sprinkles on top of the already delicious sundae was the surprise guests like The Weeknd (also a Toronto native), 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, Rick Ross, French Montana, Snoop Dogg (er, Snoop Lion) and Nicki Minaj.
When Nicki joined Drake for “Make Me Proud” the crowd went bananas. Having as much love as he does for his labelmate he praised her endlessly. The YMCMB heir also used his time on stage to address the critics who deem his music too emo. “For anyone that says I make too much music for women, you’re f—– right I make too much music for women,” he said. “Who the f— else would I make my music for?” In other words, just enjoy the music.
