The crazy thing about Drake’s show last night at New York’s Jones Beach is that the star-studded outdoor affair could have been bigger. Saturday’s edition of Drizzy’s Club Paradise tour was a major one, considering it’s his second concert since his alleged bout with Chris Brown in New York City nightclub W.i.P. last Wednesday. Many thought he’d use the platform to, at least subtly, address the rumors.
But even before the Hump Day rumble, he’d promised to make Saturday’s show the epic night heavyweight New York radio station Hot 97’s Summer Jam was not this year. “They fucked up Summer Jam,” he said. “So I’m just going to do Summer Jam how it’s supposed to go.” And really, he did. (We’ll get to his set in a bit.) Had it not been for Atlanta’s Hot 107.9’s Birthday Bash 17—a show where T.I. brought out two of Drake’s big gun friends in Cash Money captain Lil Wayne and Maybach Music buddy Rick Ross—happening Saturday night as well, he could have had the best show of the night.
Still, it was an amazing show with Meek Mill, Waka Flocka Flame, and J. Cole opening, while Drake brought several stars and local favorites to his club. Click through and find out how everyone’s set went.
