Though he was noticeably absent from the second night of Jay-Z and Eminem’s recent Detroit double-bill, Drake had good reason. The Toronto native headed over to Oakland, Calif., to headline KMEL’s Summer Jam 2010 at Oracle Arena on Saturday (Sept. 4), where he shared the stage with fellow performers Jazmine Sullivan, E-40, Lloyd Banks, Miguel, and more.
Rocking a varsity jacket, cargo pants, and shades, Drizzy showed Cali love by performing hits from his discography, removing his jacket near the end of his set and shouting “Free Weezy!”
Bay Area legend E-40 repped for his Sick Wid It Records imprint, donning a glittery chain that hung over his black tee, while a gorgeous Jazmine Sullivan sang her heart out during her set, looking sharp in a cropped teal jacket, shiny shirt, and ragged jeans.
