Fresh from hosting “Drake Night” at the Toronto Raptors game, Drake hopped a plane to Harlem to shoot a video for the remix to “Wu-Tang Forever” featuring A$AP Rocky. Noisey snuck onto the set on Sunday night and shared their experience along with some camera phone pics.
Here’s what we know: The clip was directed by A$AP Rocky (per Jessy Terrero) and shot on the rooftop of an apartment building. Both rappers performed in front of an egg white grand piano. Wearing a black hoodie and Timbs, Drake sipped hot chocolate between takes, while A$AP poured out a brown-bagged 40 in the final scene.
Members of the Wu-Tang Clan were rumored to make a cameo in the video, but weren’t spotted on set. The original song, which only features Drake, appears on his Grammy-nominated album Nothing Was the Same.
Drake will appear on “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” on Thursday ahead of his hosting gig on “SNL” this weekend.
Check out a few leaked photos from the set below.
