OVO boss Drake is currently in New York City for his Summer Sixteen tour, and decided to make the most of his trip by doing a surprise set at the Mad Decent Block Party in Brooklyn yesterday evening. He appeared onstage during longtime collaborator Boi-1da's set and ran through a batch of singles, including "Jumpman," "Energy," "Back To Back," and his recent hit with DJ Khaled, "For Free."
He performed at MSG on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, and will play his final show there tonight before moving on to the TD Garden in Boston on Wednesday.
Last week, English MC Skepta got an OVO owl tattoo, further cementing his bond with the Toronto crew. UK singer and producer James Blake dished on what it was like saying "no" to being sampled by Drake in a recent interview.
