Drake Reunites W/ Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne For 'Young Money Reunion' Concert At His OVO Fest In Toronto
Drake finally reunited on stage with his former Young Money label mates, Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, for the first time in 8 years.
The highly anticipated performance, which Drake simply dubbed the "Young Money Reunion," brought the trio back together to sing their individual and collective hits. The reunion was a big piece of Drake's OVO Fest, his three-day festival in his hometown, Toronto, ON Canada.
As previously reported, the reunion concert was initially planned for August 1, however, things were postponed due to Drake testing positive for COVID the weekend of the performance. After a negative test, the Canadian rapper quickly rescheduled the event to last night (August 7) at Budweiser Stage.
The highly-anticipated concert began with a message on-screen reading "Unfortunately, Lil Wayne had issues at the border." Shortly after, more text appeared, reading:
"Luckily, Drake runs the border."
Lil Wayne then popped out on stage and ran through his greatest hits, including "Blunt Blowing," "Mrs. Officer," "A Milli" and "Loyal."

After Wayne left the stage, Nicki Minaj took to the stage and delivered her greatest hits to a screaming crowd.
Nicki Minaj rapped songs like "Beez In The Trap," "Chun-Li," and brought out Jamaican artist Skillibeng to perform their song "Crocodile Teeth." She also gave the audience a sneak peek performance of her new single "Super Freaky Girl."
