Ridiculous comparisons to Watch the Throne firmly aside, What a Time to Be Alive still feels quite historic. The joint album / mixtape / whatever-you-want-to-call-it quickly found itself perched atop the Billboard 200, and for good reason: WATTBA is pretty stacked with bangers documenting Drake's hitched ride to Pluto with Future. During his set at the Austin City Limits Music Festival on Saturday, Drake decided to enlist Future for a trio of collaborative performances, including the live debuts of WATTBA tracks "Jumpman" and "Big Rings," in addition to their DS2 pairing "Where Ya At." Sadly, the current batch of footage tests one's patience with 240p but history is worth the struggle:
"All I have for you tonight is a reward for being the best crowd I’ve seen all fucking year," Drake told the energetic Texan audience. The ACL Fest has hosted "only three hip-hop headliners," according to Billboard, making Drake's headlining stint an even bigger deal than it already was.
