Internationally acclaimed rapper Drake hasn’t been around forever. In fact, his stint in the music business (on a mainstream level) has been just over two years. That hasn’t stopped critics from calling him a legend, and a groundbreaking artist who is moving the genre of hip-hop into a whole new realm.
His new album, “Take Care”,leaked onto the internet prior to its release date last month, but that didn’t bother him too much. The album still went on to sell an impressive 659 000 copies in its first week, making this his second number one album. So when local fans found out the Headline rapper would be heading toSouth Africafor one performance, the tickets became little goldmines.
The star, signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment, jetted at the weekend, where he performed at the Castle Lite Feel the Beat of the Sub Zero Experience party. He was supported by a strong lineup of local artists including beat boxer George Avakian and DJs Naves and Sphectacular . Channel O MVA nominee Khuli Chana put on a fantastic performance too and the 4000 revelers also got a surprise when Morafe joined Chana on stage.
After patiently waiting, fans finally got to see the man of the moment. The Canadian-born star asked that “Joburg show me a … good time”, to which he launched into the hit single. There was a problem with the sound, which hampered his performance slightly, but that didn’t deter him from rocking the stage once it was all sorted out. There were rumors that his mentor Lil Wayne was at Gallagher Estate and those rumors quickly turned into murmurs that “Wheezy would be performing a track or two with Drake”, but that was not meant to be.
All in all Drizzy lit up the stage and blew those lucky enough to see him away.
With the crowd reciting his lyrics back to him, word for word, the star seemed humbled by the response to him visiting the country for the first time. There’s no doubt he’ll be back in the next few years.
