8. When “0 To 100” ignites the crowd, you start to realize that the loosie track is surpassing “Started From The Bottom” as one of Drake’s most beloved anthems. Mostly because it’s a more versatile flip on the same formula. Zero to 100 could represent the transition from chill to amped, broke to rich, passive to aggressive. Classic one-size-fits-all Drizzy. Definitely one of the concert’s early peak moments.
9. Wayne’s shoutout to Capone and Noreaga in “Believe Me” felt so right in that small Queens stadium, only a 10-minute drive from the duo’s Lefrak stomping grounds. Nevermind the fact some portion of the crowd only knows CNN as a news station.
10. Spotted at the performance venue: Rihanna, J. Cole, Timbaland, Serena Williams, L.A. Reid, NBA ballers Klay Thompson and David Lee, Boi-1da, Omen, Bas. And the newest recipient of a Drake remix: Makonnen. How he didn’t bring dude on stage to perform “Club Goin' Up On A Tuesday” is beyond me. The show took place on a Tuesday, for Drake’s sake!
11. That’s not the only track you’ll wish you’d heard. But there’s just too many hits to fit into an approximately two-hour run time. My wish list: “5 AM In Toronto,” “Successful,” “Miss Me,” “Lord Knows,” “Sh!t” (Drake). And “Tha Block Is Hot,” “Hustler Musik,” “I’m Single,” “Back That Azz Up,” "Where da Cash At" (Lil Wayne).
12. And how did “Hello Brooklyn” not get any play during the battle of the hooks segment, in New York City?
13. But Wayne did pull out “Duffle Bag Boy,” quite possibly the greatest hip-hop hook of the past 10 years.
