Drake’s OVO Fest Set Includes 40 songs and Special Guests Lauryn Hill, Usher, 50 Cent & His Mom

By Shannon Carlin

Drake seriously knows how to throw a festival. First, he gets Outkast to headline the first night of the two-day fest, celebrating its fifth year. And then he takes the stage for the closing night. But, he didn’t take that stage alone, no way, he managed to wrangle up a few of his musician friends — 10 to be exact — for the 40-song set. He even got his dear ol’ mom to come out and make an appearance.

The night started off with Lauryn Hill helping Drake out with his “Draft Day,” which samples her song “Doo Wop (That Thing).”  She managed to show up on time for this one and not yell at the crowd.

Later, he brought out Trey Songz for two songs (“Successful” and “Oh Na Na!”) before bringing him back to help out with 50 Cent’s song “Smoke.” 50 Cent had his G-Unit boys help out on that track, along with “I Get Money” and “In Da Club.”

J. Cole performed his two tracks “Can’t Get Enough” off his 2011 debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story  and “Power Trip” off his 2013 album, Born Sinner. Drake even shouted out Kendrick Lamar during his portion in honor of all the young guys coming up.

Drake also had a little fun with himself during “All Me,” running a clip of him lint rolling himself at the Toronto Raptors game.
