Drake is using his “Summer Sixteen” tour stops to address issues he has with certain rappers. In cities such as Detroit and Washington, D.C., Drizzy cleverly sent some subliminal jabs at Joe Budden and Meek Mill—two MCs who have gone at him before on wax and social media.
On Sunday night, Drake and Future’s tour made its way to Philadelphia at the Wells Fargo Center. It wasn’t long until fans speculated that Drake would fire at Meek on his home turf. This Instagram he posted a few hours ago was already signs that he was ready to go. (The “lucky numbers” he’s referring to are his birthday, which is October 24, 1986 or 10 – 24 – 6.)

DJ Akademiks, who reportedly is in attendance, stated some details about Drake, writing on Twitter that he came out in an Allen Iverson jersey and opened with “Summer Sixteen.” He also claims Drake changed the lyrics to “Trophies” from “This a fuck-them-boys, forever-hold-a-grudge song” to “fuck-that-boy-forever, I hold a grudge son.”

In a video clip below via Twitter user @Todayinhh, Drake can be heard rapping on “Still Here” new lyrics: “Man you not really from Philly and they can tell nigga.” So for anyone keeping count, this is the second diss at Meek while on this tour.
Whether this is true or not, people are claiming he also said this:

Drake really said "born in Toronto but I feel like Philly adopted us" tonight in Philly?— RAD (@iAmRadomir) August 22, 2016
To add to his surprise guests such Kanye West, Fat Joe, Cam'ron, and Juelz Santana to name a few, he brought out Lil Wayne. Watch a clip of "HYFR" and "A Milli" below. They also teased a second Drake vs. Lil Wayne co-headlining tour, which would follow their Street Fighter-themed one in 2014.
For his performance of "Back to Back," Drake changed up the lyrics again. He raps, "I did another one, I did another one / I even did this shit in Philly, man another one." At the end of the clip, he makes a defiant point: "And just remember, when you watch that video over and over tonight, it’s not about your city, I love your city. You did that shit to your motherfuckin’ self boy.”
