Drake Calls Kanye West A

Drake is also joined by Lil Wayne, Diddy, Ma$e, TLC, A$AP Rocky, French Montana, J. Cole, Big Sean and others at this year's OVO Fest.

Drake's OVO Fest featured several guest performers Monday (August 5). 

Kanye West hit the stage at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, Canada, performing "New Slaves," "All of the Lights" and "Can't Tell Me Nothing."

"This is one of my first mentors, one of the first people to embrace me, my role model," Drake said of West. "Y'all make some noise for the god that is Kanye West." 

West also spoke about Drake. 

"There's a lot of rappers that came in the game that wasn't able to do something like this for their city," Kanye said. "Me and [Jay Z] would've never made Watch the Throne if this nigga wasn't putting pressure on us like that." 

"That was probably the most important moment in my career to date," Drake said in a post-show interview with MTV. "I think me and Kanye have wanted to express our respect for each other for a long time and sometimes Rap, the business, the competitiveness and just the heart behind it, forces you to not talk to the people you quietly admire."

The interaction between West and Drake can be seen below via RealTalkNY.

Diddy and Ma$e were introduced as guest performers, as well. They performed "Feel So Good" and "Mo Money Mo Problems." "This is history," Diddy said. "Thanks Drake, for bringing us together." The two have been associates and at odds during different times in their careers. Last year, Ma$e left Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment after disagreements with the label. "You know how Puff is," Ma$e said of Diddy. "I love him but you gon' cut your arm off to get free [from Bad Boy]." 

Lil Wayne also hit the stage for "HYFR" and "Good Kush & Alcohol (Bitches Love Me)." TLC performed "FanMail," "Waterfalls" and "No Scrubs," which featured Lil Mama performing Left Eye's material. Big Sean joined Drake for "All Me" and The Weeknd joined Drizzy for "Crew Love." J. Cole and Miguel hit the stage for "Power Trip" and French Montana performed "Ain't Worried About Nothin'" and "Pop That." A$AP Rocky came out for "Fuckin' Problems" and "Wild for the Night." 

Wale and James Blake performed as opening acts at the OVO Fest, which is in its fouth year. Last year's event featured A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz, among others.

    Excellent website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any community forums that cover the same topics discussed here? I'd really love to be a part of community where I can get advice from other experienced people that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Cheers!

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Kudos!

    Whats up are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and create my own. Do you need any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Per avere un look come il suo saranno necessarie le camicette di seta dall'aria maliziosa ma chic, abbinate a pantaloni o jeans skinny che esaltano le sue forme minute e perfette. Ad arricchire questi outfit da giorno non potranno mancare i gioielli all'ultimo geido o dall'eleganza classica dei diamanti e topazi, clutch colorate e super griffate.

    Awesome blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I'm completely confused .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!

      You're wrong about everything, Drake dickrider. Your hero's just paying homage because half of his style is from Kanye (the other half is from Wayne) and if it wasn't for Kanye, Drake wouldn't have a music career. Also, Drake is nottrue hip-hop, he's fake R&B/pop rap.
