Drake headlined his 3rd annual October’s Very Own festival this weekend to a sold-out crowd in Toronto, ON, and delighted fans with an impressive list of scheduled and surprise guest appearances.
According to an review posted Aug. 6, 2012, at Billboard.com, the Canuck rap superstar treated fans to solo and collaborative performances by The Weeknd, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, along with unscheduled appearances by Waka Flocka Flame, Meek Mill, French Montana, Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg and Nicki Minaj.
Drizzy, whose past OVO Fests have featured surprise appearances by A-list giants such as Lil Wayne, Stevie Wonder, Nas, Jay-Z and Eminem; proved his star continues to shine brightly on the heels of his hugely successful sophomore album Take Care.
Hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg, now performing reggae under the name “Snoop Lion,” performed hits including: “It’s Like This, It’s Like That,” “You’re My Baby Girl,” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot;” while Minaj joined Drake to perform “Make Me Proud,” and partnered with Ross and Montana on “Stay Schemin’.”
Drake’s next scheduled live appearance is on Sept. 2 in Philadelphia, PA at Benjamin Franklin Parkway.
