TORONTO — Sporting an October’s Very Own varsity jacket, black t-shirt, fatigue pants and a pair of black Air Jordan sneakers, Drake looked every bit the part of collegiate jock during his OVO Festival performance Sunday night (August 1).
The homecoming star basked in the adoration of the local audience, which cheered every line Drake either spit or sang, from his springy breakout “Best I Ever Had” to the hardened Thank Me Later number “Up All Night.”
It was quite a showing for the upstart MC; the show doubled as the inaugural OVO Festival and the last leg of his Away From Home Tour, which he launched this past spring.
But like a respectful freshman type, Drake made sure to welcome the upperclassmen — who threatened to steal the show — to his Caribana-tinged party.
Drizzy brought the capacity crowd to its feet when he invited both Jay-Z and Eminem to the proceedings as the two legendary artists joined the So Far Gone artist for back-to-back performances to close out his show.
