The Young Money label’s musical trio, Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Lil Wayne reunited at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto on Saturday night.
The Reunion show was originally about to be scheduled for Aug. 1 as part of the October World Weekend but was delayed a few days after Drake tested positive for COVID-19.
The evening was indeed about giving Lil Wayne his flowers, and Drake and Nicki Minaj made sure that the Young Money founder felt their appreciation for giving them their careers.
According to the complex report, The Young Money Reunion concert may have gotten off to a slow start, then after two hours, thanks to Lil Wayne standing held up at the border. Still, nonetheless, fans were ecstatic to see the Big Three trio of Weezy, Drake, and Nicki Minaj together again at Toronto’s Budweiser stage on Saturday night.
Drake performed a few of his newer songs and addressed some criticism about his latest dance-heavy album “Honestly, Nevermind.”
“[The album] is one of the greatest things I ever did. I like to challenge myself, you know But I had a lot of people hitting me up like, ‘You know, that shit’s too fast, I don’t know… you makin’ like Zara music,” he explained, referencing memes and critics comparing the album to the music that plays in the retailer’s dressing rooms.
“And I said, ‘Would you like me to slow it down? Do you want the old Drake? That’s all you gotta say,” as he started to sing a piano rendition of “A Keeper.”
All three acts had their own solo performance time. Drake and Minaj performed “Moment 4 Life” and “Up All Night” together, while Wayne and Drake bounced between verses for “The Motto” and “Every Girl.” The trio also gave a performance of their wildly popular “Bedrock.”
