Drake Closes Out SXSW
OVO Fans swarmed the Fader Fort Presented by Converse stage at SXSW as they shut down the festival with an appearance by October’s Very Own himself, Drake. The Toronto rapper, whose first mag cover ever was with The Fader in 2009 and who also covered their 100th issue late last year, brought out some of his OVO Sound acts to open up for him before sending the crowd into a frenzy himself.
The two-hour OVO showcase kicked off with Drake’s newest R&B act dvsn, followed by Chicago crooner Roy Wood$. Next up were cult favorites Majid Jordan and PartyNextDoor. Finally, the crowd lost control once the 6 God himself hit the stage with Energy:
Nice! We’re ready for that Views album now, Drizzy…
