Drake Tips Hat to Kendrick Lamar At Nicki Minaj Show In Toronto

In a whirlwind of online chatter on April 30th, Drake stole the spotlight, thanks to a nod from Kendrick Lamar. Lamar’s colossal diss track, “Euphoria,” left no corner untouched, stirring fans’ excitement. But amidst the buzz, Drizzy kept his cool. The “Jimmy Cooks” maestro pleasantly surprised fans during Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday 2 Tour stop in Toronto. Reuniting onstage, the duo radiated joy before Drake subtly hinted at the next chapter in his exchange with Kendrick Lamar.

While Drake’s appearance was somewhat expected, given the show’s Toronto locale, it wasn’t guaranteed. Nicki Minaj‘s tour had seen several dates without the 6 God due to scheduling constraints. Yet, this time, Minaj brought him out, showering him with praise. “Make some noise for the king, Toronto,” she declared. “Make some noise for this icon, this legend.” Together, they debuted their latest collaboration, “Needle,” before Drake took center stage to perform his hit “Rich Baby Daddy.”

As Drake bid farewell, he reciprocated the love Minaj and her fans had shown him. “Toronto, make some noise for the greatest female rapper of all time,” he hailed. “Nicki, I love you.” Yet, as he exited, Drake left a tantalizing hint about his ongoing exchange with Lamar. “You know what time it is,” he assured the crowd. “You know what I gotta do.”

Both Drake and Minaj find themselves embroiled in rap rivalries. Drake squares off against Kendrick Lamar, while Minaj engages in lyrical sparring with Megan Thee Stallion. Strangely parallel, Lamar’s “Like That” and Megan’s “Hiss” soared atop the Billboard Hot 100, emerging as favorites in their respective battles. Drake and Minaj have fired back with their own disses, though not yet matching their competitors’ chart performance.

Nevertheless, fans find comfort in the enduring camaraderie between these Young Money icons with a friendly kiss that erupted the audience.
