Tonight, Drake made his first appearance at Brooklyn's Barclays Center as part of the Jordan Brand Classic, an annual high-school basketball tournament. While he was only allotted fifteen minutes to perform, the Toronto superstar delivered a medley of some of his biggest hits. He also shouted out both Michael Jordan and Jay-Z, part-owner of the arena. A couple of people in attendance have thus far offered a run-down of what transpired at the Brooklyn venue.
Perhaps the biggest part of the night was Drizzy's announcement at the end: this will not be his last time performing at the Barclays Center this year. Ostensibly announcing a full-on tour to begin in the Fall, Drake said that his New York tour date will be held at the Barclays Center, which will possibly happen in either October or November.
It is only a matter of time for footage to surface.
