Drake performed his second of back-to-back shows in New York City Wednesday night (Sept. 29) at Radio City Music Hall, and to wrap up his two-night stand in the Big Apple, the Toronto rapper brought to the stage some of music’s heavyweights.
Jay-Z, Trey Songz, Fabolous, Francis from Francis & the Lights, and Young Money/Cash Money members Baby, Tyga and Mack Maine joined Drizzy for the nearly two-hour long set, as part of his “Light Dreams & Nightmares” tour.
Jay-Z came out and fans got amped for Light Up. Jay emerged from behind the stage to a boisterous standing ovation, bringing the capacity crowd to its feet.
The Brooklyn MC rapped a portion of his verse on the “Thank Me Later” track before going into his own “On to the Next One,” sans Swizz Beatz — although Beatz joined Drake later for “Fancy.”
Drizzy also paid tribute to the late Aaliyah over a medley of “I Miss You,” “At Your Best” and “Let Me Know,” as an image of the late R&B star was displayed on the set.
“New York City, everybody sitting down, stand up and put your lighters up one time,” he asked in tribute of the deceased singer.
Drake wrapped up the set with “Find Your Love,” followed by “Over.” “They’re telling me my time is up and that I have to leave the stage,” said Drake. “But I waited way too long to short-change my New York City family like that. So, on behalf of Drizzy Drake, can you please tell these people it’s far from motherf***ing over?”
Lights flickered and fireworks came out the back of the stage as Drake stood looking at the ground, taking it all in, while the excited throng clapped and hollered.
