Drake’s usually really good with surprising people at his own shows and Monday night (August 8) was no different.
Performing for the final time during his Summer 16 tour, the Toronto native decided to pull out all the stops at Madison Square Garden. During Future’s normal set, T.I. made an appearance to perform “Live Your Life,” and it was on.
Of course no show could be totally New York with an appearance from Dipset. Minus Jim Jones, the Harlem group performed all of their classics including “Oh Boy,” “Hey Ma” and “Dipset Anthem” to an elated audience. Hopefully this gets fans more excited for Cam’ron’s forthcoming album, which is slated for this fall.
The peak of the night though began when Fat Joe and Remy Ma hit the stage and trotted out “All the Way Up.” This was followed by a surprise set by J. Cole, who really stole the show. Although not from NYC, the Fayetteville, North Carolina, native did spend time in Queens while he was in college at St. Johns. He performed "No Role Modelz," "A Tale of 2 Citiez" and his verse off of Jeremih’s “Planez.”
Before he walked off stage, Drake had quite the praise for J. Cole, calling him "one of the smartest, greatest, most legendary artists of our generation." While that’s a big statement to make, it’s not a reach. After all, Cole went double platinum with no features.
Check out all that went down during Drake’s final Summer 16 tour stop below.
