Drake Brings Out Kanye West, TLC, Big Sean, Miguel, A$AP Rocky + More at OVO Fest

Drake was full of surprises at his annual OVO Fest in Toronto Monday night (Aug. 5). The Young Money rapper shocked audiences when he brought Kanye West onstage.

It’s been long rumored that the two had some sort of beef with each other but it was never really confirmed.

Drizzy and Yeezy put all the pesky rumors to rest as they both stood together onstage in a show of solidarity.

West praised his fellow rap peer for praising his city of Toronto and bringing heat to the rap game.

“It’s been a lot of rappers that came in the game that wasn’t able to do something like this for their city,” he said. “Me and Hov would have never made ‘Watch the Throne’ if this n—- wasn’t putting pressure on us like that.”

The Throne rapper then performed a medley of hits including ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ ‘All of the Lights’ and ‘New Slaves’ from his latest album, ‘Yeezus.’

Afterward, Drake told Revolt TV that West’s appearance at his OVO Fest was a monumental moment in his life.

“This is probably the most important moment of my life to date,” he said. “Because at the end of the day, I do look up to ‘Ye and he’s been a major influence, if not the biggest influence in my career.”

“So to hear him say that and just to feel like, OK who knows where this could goes, maybe we could do music now like we were supposed to or maybe we just start talking more. It’s a good thing,” he added.

Yes, indeed.

Other surprises of the night included Drake bringing Diddy and Mase together onstage, which hasn’t happened in 15 years. The 26-year-old rhymer also welcomed TLC to perform a medley of their classic hits.

Other special guests were Big Sean, French Montana, Wale, A$AP Rocky, Miguel, Lil Wayne and the Weeknd.

Overall, Drake gave Toronto fans a show they will most likely never forget.
