Drake and Kanye West are making the most out of the unique fashion week/NBA All-Star weekend mash-up that’s turned New York into the ultimate celebrity playground. After a two-day battle of one-upmanship, the fellow rap gods finally joined forces Friday, during Drake’s ultra-intimate, ultra-exclusive concert at Irving Plaza, where he performed cuts off his brand new mixtape If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late. First, West joined Drake on stage to perform his blistering verse from “Don’t Like,” after which Ye bequeathed Drizzy with a shiny new pair of Yeezy Boosts.
And that wasn’t even the show’s high point.
“Kanye West, that’s like a mentor to me,” Drake told the crowd after West left the stage. “He’s one of the greatest artists. Period, in life. He’s got this song I really like.” That’s when rapper Drake morphed into singer Drake, to cover West’s latest hits “Only One” and “FourFiveSeconds”. So yeah, New York City is like, really fun right now.
