Live updates comin’ in from Toronto as the expected star-studded OVO Fest affair is going off without a hitch… and going on with a bevy of guest stars.
Widely expected surprise/not so surprise guests Kanye West, Skepta, and Future all appeared. (UPDATE: Pharrell too. Didn’t expect that one!) The former sounds like he had his own concert within Drake’s concert, in fact. And to top it off, Drake roasted Meek Mill with a slideshow of MEMEs. (I led it off above with my favorite, and I’m sure there’s more.) The tweets/clips below, to be updated throughout the night. At posting time, Kanye’s set is still going on. Wow. (UPDATES on the top now as the fest closed with “Know Yourself” and apparently “Back To back” again.)
I was runnin through the 6…Drake is joined on stage by all his woes…and Will Smith.
Skepta, welcome to the States. (Now have fun north of the border with Drizzy tonight for OVO Fest.)
But seriously, Skepta dropped by the Hot 97 studios and linked up with one of my favorite radio personalities: Peter Rosenberg. They touched on a number of topics including the recent passing of Skepta’s friend. A good listen in the background on this Monday below:
Skepta adds on Drake’s co-sign to the intro/outro for his new video and otherwise shows face to the camera with the homies from London. Thank Drizzy and Yeezy for co-signing Skepta and the grime movement to more listeners here in the States. Get ahead of the curve with “Shutdown” above.
