Drake’s OVO Sound Radio Show Dedicated to Kanye West Today
The show is a tribute to Yeezy, according to Olver El-Khatib, who tells Fader, "This is a tribute to Kanye West songs and production that I think have shaped the game today.” Kanye is also set to perform on SNL tonight.
The NBA All-Star Game is all the rage in Toronto right now, with Drake and Kevin Hart coaching the celebrity game last night. Drake even took the opportunity to take a jab at Meek, who is legally unable to say anything back at this point.
The last OVO Sound Radio episode found Drake premiering "Summer Sixteen," the first taste of the rollout for his upcoming Views From The 6 album, as well as announcing that people could expect the project in April. With advertisements beginning to pop up for the album around his hometown, it wouldn't be a surprise if Drake played some new music of his own - or perhaps premiere an exclusive from someone else.
Today is also the seventh anniversary of So Far Gone, so surely Drake has something special up his sleeve. Notice the "GOOD" on the license plate of the promo image that OVO Sound tweeted out.
OVO Sound Radio and the DJs and curators that participate in it tend to play new, lesser-known music on the show, often breaking artists (knowingly or otherwise) into somewhat larger fame. Kodak Black, Lil Yachty, and Ramriddlz are just a few examples.
We'll be livetweeting the show on XXL's twitter in case you want to find out what that crazy new song is that they're playing. We'll also be updating a live setlist in this post for you to refer to below, and once an official stream and tracklist is available, we'll have that for you too. Plus, we'll drop any rips of new Drake music in here in case he plays any.
