Drake performed a historic set at the legendary Apollo Theater, and the superstar helped set things off with a little help from his friends. With celebs from Kevin Durant to Ice Spice in attendance, Drizzy ran through hits and brought out high-wattage guests 21 Savage and Harlem's own Dipset as part of SiriusXM and Sound 42’s exclusive event.
Dressed in Cam’ron’s famous pink mink, Drake performed with Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana and Freekey Zekey, rocking hits like "I Really Mean It," "Dipset Anthem" and "We Fly High (Ballin)." Before they left the stage, Dipset gifted Drake with a custom OVO x Dipset braclet.
“These guys right here from Harlem made us dress different, talk different, walk different, rap different all the way in Canada,” Drake announced.
21 Savage helped Drake close out the show, as the collaborators tore through tracks like “Rich Flex" and “Spin Bout You” from their 2022 album Her Loss.
“I appreciate all of those people that stick by me.… but I deeply appreciate everybody for continuing to support us," Drake said. “I’ve thought about a bunch of things in life, but at this moment in time none of those things are stopping making music for you, so I’ll be here for you for a little bit at least. And I hope I can strike up more emotions for you, maybe this year. I might get bored and make another one, who knows!”
Drake returns tonight (Sunday) for day two of his Apollo performance.
