Bad Boy Records CEO Diddy and protégé Ma$e reunited last night (August 5) when they hit the stage at Young Money superstar Drake’s annual OVO Fest concert in Canada.
Toward the latter part of Drizzy’s star-studded event, Puff and Ma$e shared the stage to perform hits like “Feel So Good” and “Mo Money Mo’ Problems.”
J. Cole and Miguel (the latter co-headlining a fall tour with Drake) swooned female fans with radio hits “Power Trip” and “Adorn” before the rapper-singer went into an acoustic cover of “I Get Lonely Too.” The moment lead into an appearance from TLC, who did a medley of “Fanmail,” “Waterfalls” (with Lil’ Mama), and “Scrubs.” After taking fans back to his early hits such as “Successful,” “Best I Ever Had,” “Forever,” and “Over,” it was time for a rare reunion as Diddy and Ma$e joined together on stage for the first time in years. The duo showed their chemistry of the 90s as they ran through No. 1 hits “Victory,” “Feel So Good,” “Mo’ Money Mo’ Problems,” and “All About the Benjamins.” (Miss Info TV)
The Toronto native also turned things up a notch by ending last night’s show with an unexpected performance by Kanye West.
Drake’s annual OVO Fest is tonight in Toronto, and naturally he’s brought some special guests. Though some have inferred from Drake’s recent lyrics about “your new sh*t,” that some subliminal shots are being thrown at the one and only Kanye West. Whether or not such is the case, the pair of superstar rappers make a move tonight that will silence all speculation, if at least only for a moment, taking the same stage in Toronto. After bringing a number of other stars, including The Weeknd, Big Sean, French Montana, TLC and Wale, Drake brought out Kanye West. (Complex)
Coincidentally, a photo of Drake and the former Bad Boy stud surfaced online hours prior to the concert starting.
No Instagram filter needed here: that’s Drake rubbing elbows with Mase you see. With Drizzy’s annual OVO Fest set to shake things up in his native Toronto tonight (August 5), VIBE obtained this exclusive photo, confirming that there’s no telling what Aubrey Graham has planned. Could Mason Betha be popping up for a special rendition of their forgotten 2009 “Best I Ever Had” remix in the Great White North? Could the two be cooking up a collabo for Drizzy’s forthcoming effort Nothing Was The Same or is the Bad Boy spitter flaunting his Versace threads in honor of Drake’s take on the Migos song? Either way, two fingers up for the candid shot. Let’s hope this Kodak moment means some studio time. (VIBE)
Drizzy recruited a slew of hip-hop heavyweights like Nicki Minaj, French Montana, Meek Mill and more for last year’s OVO Fest.
Drake headlined his third annual OVO Festival in his hometown of Toronto on Sunday night (August 5) with guests like Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, Snoop Dogg as his reggae alter-ego Snoop Lion, French Montana, Meek Mill and singer The Weeknd all sharing the stage with him. And as promised, Drake unleashed his featured guest appearance on Aaliyah’s posthumous single, “Enough Said,” debuting it as part of his huge concert last night. It has previously been reported that Drizzy would be executive-producing the late and loved singer’s posthumous album and “Enough Said” seems to be the first listen off the project. (XXL Mag)
