Eminem, Jay-Z Join Drake at OVO Fest

Drake

Hip-hop’s prince made a triumphant return to his hometown of Toronto for the inaugural OVO Festival at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre on Sunday night (Aug. 1). After Bun B, Francis and the Lights, and Young Jeezy warmed up the sold-out crowd, Drake performed a 90-minute set packed with surprise guests who flew across the border to lend their support.

Rick Ross swaggered across the stage for “B.M.F.,” Drizzy’s fellow Canuck Kardinal Offishall joined him on “Ol’ Time Killin’,” Fabolous pitched it with “Throw It in the Bag (Remix),” and Young Jeezy made it an “Unforgettable” night. Beyoncé was also spotted backstage.

But the 23-year-old phenom saved the best for last. Cell phones lit up the venue when Eminem emerged from the shadows to spit his verse on “Forever.” “Give me something for the man who’s inspired me more than anybody else in my fu**ing life,” Drizzy said before his mentor Jay-Z appeared onstage to the tune of “Run This Town.”

Hov may run New York City, but by the end of the night, it was clear who runs this town.

    why the hell do people call wayne king of hip hop. his music is wack he may have some decent ones but gees abit over rated! eminem is more on the side of a pioneer with his raps and the way he raps jay z as welll but his over rated too. drake is far more better then wayne. people who rate wayne as the best is a complete fool and no nothing about the hip hop industry. someone please bring back the days of tribe called quest, talib, mos def, common, and yet even snoop still schools all these fools.
