After West’s first night at London’s Wireless Festival garnered attention for his lengthy rant regarding racism and the fashion industry, a highlight of his second set includes a tribute to Drake. Following Drizzy’s cancellation of his headlining performance, West took over the slot and sent the Young Money rapper a hearty salute last night (July 5).
Playing “Trophies,” “We Made It” and “All Me”, West chimed in with a few of Drake’s lyrics as the crowd rocked out. Yeezy segued back into his set with “Mercy.”
Drake got wind of West’s gesture and took to Instagram to thank him:
“Man I appreciate Kanye playing Trophies at Wireless so much. I want to be at all the shows more than anything in the world right now. I just keep watching the video over and over. Slow motion for me right now but I promise all the fans an incredible experience as soon as I am back. I am so sorry once again I love you all dearly. Thank you Ye for giving me that joy tonight.”
Aww, rap bromance.
