Rap beefs may be cool to help stir excitement and debate in music, but what’s far better is Black people putting differences aside and working together for the greater good, and that’s exactly what Drake and Future are doing. After allegedly falling out over some critical comments that Future made about Drake’s “Nothing Was The Same” album, Drake fired Future from their upcoming Would You Like A Tour? But the two rappers resolved their issues before going on the road, and last night Drake and Future performed together in Drake’s hometown, Toronto, for his birthday. As reported by vibe.com:
“Old beef dies hard. Despite claims that Drake and Future were at odds over alleged comments the autotuney rapper made about Drizzy’s Nothing Was The Same album that nearly ended in a Future-less tour and a $1.5 million lawsuit, the ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ mates made like bros for a special rendition of ‘Tony Montana’ in Toronto. Not only was it a celebratory occasion as Drizzy put on for his city on his 27th birthday, it was also Mr. Freebandz inaugural performance in TDot. The two had rang in Drake’s born day the previous night together in Ottawa with fellow touree Miguel.”
Drake and Future bounced around on the stage together seemingly unfazed by the issues that they’ve put behind them. And for the people who think they were only doing it for show, the photo of Miguel, Drake and Future is of them celebrating Drizzy’s birthday.
