Drake Congratulates Chance The Rapper On Launching His Own Festival
“Always happy to see people making historic moments for their hometown.”
Drake has been throwing OVO Fest in his city for 7 years now, so he knows a successful hometown event when he sees one. Chance The Rapper’s very first Magnificent Coloring Day took place in Chicago Saturday, featuring acts like Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, Young Thug, Tyler, The Creator, LiL Uzi Vert, and even a very special surprise appearance from Kanye West.
Footage from the show illustrates just how great of a day it was, which comes through particularly well in a clip that shows fans gleefully rushing towards the stage when Kanye showed up. Obviously, it was enough for Drake to give the rapper props on his achievement, throwing up a picture of he, Chance, and Kanye together, writing, “Congrats to@chancetherapper on starting a festival and putting on an incredible show for your city! Always happy to see people making historic moments for their hometown.”
Drake and Chance still haven’t done a song together, but it seems like a lot has changed since Drake name-dropped the Chicago rapper on a song claiming he didn’t know him. “And if I left this shit to chance I would’ve picked a name like Chance the Rapper / Yeah, no offense cause I don’t know that n*gga,” he rapped on 2014’s “Draft Day.”
