The Summer Sixteen Tour featuring Drake and Future has had many motivational moments, and fans who attended performances have been more than enthusiastic about their experiences. Some ways that these two rappers have motivated others include:
1. More Effort Means Greater Rewards
At a recent performance Drizzy showed that when you put more effort into something you will reap greater rewards as a result. As the performance went on into the night and 11 pm came around the Toronto rapper still had plenty of adrenaline and energy to spare so he asked the crowd if they wanted him to continue. As the crowd was loud with cheers Drake continued to perform for another half an hour, ending his set with Legend. It is obvious that Drizzy has put a lot of work and effort into his tour and his performances and he is being well rewarded for it.
2. Being an Underdog With a Chip on Your Shoulder can be Something Positive
The 6 god has made no secret of the fact that the industry has not always expected him to succeed, but in spite of this Drake is at the top. Fans can relate to working hard while it seems that everyone is against you, and there is no doubt that Drizzy has reached the top of his game in spite of the obstacles that he has run into in the past. Instead of counting on others Drake counted on himself and he definitely picked a winner to back.
3. Don’t Forget Those Who Rose Up With You
Drake understands that his fans are responsible for his success, going so far as to go into the crowd at a performance and giving a shout out to those who showed their support for his music. According to the Toronto rapper “I’m nothing without you, trust me.” Drake knows who has helped him reach stardom and he appreciates these people, showing that appreciation every chance that he gets.
4. Setbacks can Set the Stage for Comebacks
When Future has a setback with the debut of Honest he did not let this get him down, instead he picked up Anthony Saleh as his manager and then released some very popular and incredibly strong mixtapes. Now Future is sharing the stage with Drake, performing in front of tens of thousands of fans and showing just how strong his music and his motivation is.
5. It is Important to Take a Stand for What You Believe In
During his Summer Sixteen Tour with Drake Future paired his performance of his popular hit track March Madness with an image that showed him standing on top of a police car and police shooting at him. The rapper draws attention to the lyrics in the song “cops shooting n—-s, traffic”. Future shows that he stands for something, and then during the show closing Drizzy reminds everyone to show love and embrace each other like they do during the concert.
6. The Company That you Keep Reveals Who you Are
Drizzy has shown many times that the company you keep reveals who you really are, and the Toronto rapper is above reproach in this area. Drake has given Future compliments, calling the Atlanta rapper a great tour partner and stating that he does not tour with anyone else. Metroboomin was mentioned a number of times during the performance, and the 6 god also thanked GP-SK Design & Production’s Guy Pavelo and Steve Kidd for show production and lighting.
