Speaking of Drake, at least for one night, Toronto was the epicenter of the Hip-Hop universe. Drake’s T-Dot homecoming yesterday was dubbed as the OVOFest – a concert that was weeks in the making and took only a few hours to become legendary. For a man who has been around the world and back since his rise to superstardom last year, it seems as if this show meant the most to him out of any performance. Back in front of his home crowd, the loyal fans were treated to several acts including Francis and The Lights, P. Reign, Bun B and Young Jeezy. And this was all before Drake was even spotted on stage.
Given close to two hours of stage time, the OVO frontman made sure he didn’t disappoint with more special guests than people in attendance could count. Judging from Niko’s tweet before hand, I sarcastically thought he was going to bring Barack out, thus changing the scope of music, entertainment and politics forever. Barack didn’t happen, but everyone else did.
