Drake may very well surpass the legendry of Maestro Fresh Wes (remember him?) well it's been that long and Toronto has needed someone who can lift that hedge from off the head of Tdot's finest...

Yeah I missed the show too. . . Was spinnin at Excalibur for the Keri Hilson, Bobby V event... Heard Drizzy didn't hit the stage til like 3a according to DJ Toure (Mikkey Halsted's DJ)

At any rate, I got to tell you fam the alias "Chi Town" is only used if you got them girls on that strip *hell you prolly do, right on madison lol*It's Go IL USA Drizzy, remember that for the next time around!!!

Go iL or Go HOmeAnd as far the incident, hey man we the home of Al Capone shit happens, but "Dem hipsters gone have to get along wit dem hood niggas". Let the bullshit blow in the breeze, but it is unfortunate!

Twan G, what's poppin mane!?

I was right there front row center next to my friend who recorded this. We were standing well over five hours straight to be first in line(which we were lol!!)to be front row cneter(which we were!!)and standing waiting for Drake. May I say it was well worth it and would for sure do it over and over and over again!!!

I was dissapointed by the little freestyle bit at the start mayne, you gotta step it up and try to do some real emcee KRS One type shit on stage next time.

Jeston said...

Drizzy is one of my top 5 rappers. Probably top 2. But he looks and sounds hella uncomfortable freestyling and it still sounds written. But it's cool. When I rapper I could write, but I couldn't freestyle well. And it's cuz he's perfectionist and real freestyle never come out "perfect"

griftyed said...

you totally disrespected our city by showing up that late. the performance was good but you can't blame the crowd for being upset. sure people shouldn't been shooting but chicago is the city of everyday gangsters. you didn't make your club appearance either because by the time the show got out the club was closed. i "heard" you was chilling at another concert and basically said eff the folk who paid at 2 different venues to see you. people love Kanye because despite the bullshit he talks in the media, he stays true to his fans. Forever Loyal! i've seen Common, Kanye, and Talib at HOB in "Chi-City" not "Chi-Town" and never had the experience I had on May 15th. I really hope you get rid of some of those hanger-on mofos, they're bringing you down. You should be able to hold the stage on you own. i know peoples gon have a problem with what i just said but i don't blindly follow anyone for 3years and not offer a critique of the artist/art when it is needed. but hey if you not trying to be an artist anymore and now aspire to just some rapper, then hey disregard the shit i talk and keep doing you.

I went to the Chicago show and I want my money back. I only had parking until 3 and Drake didn't hit the stage until 3:20. The House Of Blue wasn't stamping peoples hands for re-admittance, so my girlfriend and I missed Drake's performance. After what I've heard about it, I'm not sure if that was a bad thing. The crowd performed more than he did. Also, We were posted by the rail to the main floor, 15 feet from the bar. The fight that broke out was right where we were standing. I would've been apart of it protecting my girl. I'm still bitter about missing the person I paid to see because he was close to 4 hours late for the show. Thats foul. Drake, I bought the tickets for my girl(who's a big fan) as her birthday present. She's very disappointed and you almost lost a fan in her. I definitely will be changing the station when I hear your music.

This routine has some George Carlin going on. I think today sex can still be a little subversive even with all these Seth Rogen comedies. I would like to see a little more of the common man reflected in the material though. I think the Nickelus F era Drake songs are great for that reason.

Houston loves drizzy!

Nelle said...

ok so i love drake and have been following him for a while as well...yes i was upset dat drake was late too but despite the fact it was a GREAT performance! @ grifyted i really hope that whoever told you dat he was at another show and just basically said forget us i hope it was a valuable source...2 me it just doesnt seem like somethin drake would do of course i dont kno him but to me he seems like a very humble guy and dat would be really stupid on his part as an up and coming artist who hasnt even released his first album to just disregard his fans...i really hope as a fan that that wasnt da case cuz i will look at him in whole different light!

Big Mike said...

I got word today that drake had a obligation to fill for a promoter at a club and couldn't leave until 2:00. Supposedly, this was the reason for his being late to his own show. His manager scheduling to many appearances at the same time. I still want my money back. That show was horrible from top to bottom. I see some Drizzy Drake stans on here. I bet Drake could do no wrong in some of yall's eyes. Half the time this dude was on the stage, he wasn't even performing. The crowd was. Glad yall had fun at the sing-along. Yall could've done that on the block for free and had just as much fun.

40 said...

Remember one thing. if were ever late its because of the promoter.

When we got to sound check at 1130. they had forgot all of our equipment to do the show.

They didnt get it all together until 230AM

Sorry, i apologize to anyone in that crowd that was frustrated waiting. but we cant do a show with no turntables and keyboards!!!

kam. said...

omg. its done with. he was late, my feet hurt, we waited. it was worth it. im not salty. wasnt his fault ppl were fighting or that it started super late for that matter. whatev. he rocked it.

griftyed said...

@nelle it looks like 40 just confirmed that he didn't show up because of prior obligations and mismanagement. he doesn't have a deal so in my mind who he associates with professionally or allows to make decisions for him seems be his choice. i wonder if that club happened to be the same Excalibur that the concert's afterparty was at and drake said he would be at on his myspace? he should humbled himself to the fans at HOB not some promoter.

excuses and the inability to take responsibility are symptoms of bitchassness. i don't want my money back, $40 mickkey halsted and the bits of so far gone were worth it. but i'm still disappointed that he couldn't even man up and apologize for being late. i'm still gon buy the album, if it ever come out. but i'll leave the repping him to stans since he got em now.

MJ said...

Aight ya'll, can you please get over it!!! Yeah he was late as hell, but 40 jus explained the situation, n i dont think it matters anyway cause Drizzy killed it!!! Seriously though, if you had the chance to see the likes of KERI HILSON, DREAM, and KEYSHIA COLE, wouldn't you??? Yeah it would've been nice if he apologized cause my cousin (who shot this), her friend n me were the first in line n waited like 5 hours but i honestly believe his performance was apology enough cause it was fire! Wish he did im goin in though, but the wait was well worth it!!!

Nelle said...

thanx 40 for confirming that anyways like i said GREAT PERFORMANCE DRAKE...well worth da wait!

sopastelle said...

Drake has the best team, and it's cool that 40 takes out the time to come in and clear things up.

Can't wait until Drizzy comes back for more..

WEST UP OR VEST UP
H-TOWN BE THA TRUTH!

@ griftyed
Drizzy was definitely not at Excalibur, that's where I was spinnin. Keri and Bobby V were both there by 2a. Also, I holla'd at Mike Irv after we ended and we were both surprised to hear that he didn't go on til 3a.
Apparently his scheduled appearance was at Green Dolphin but according to Vince Adams he didn't make it there either. They did have sound issues cause DJ Toure (Mikkey's DJ) hit me about some cdj's.
I wasn't there but I couldn't get home before hearing about all the commotion, and hell I saw all the squad cars lol. Shit happens that's the game

One thing I can say is the negative comments in this post seem to be genuine disappointment and not pure malice, so for that you gotta give it up for them expressing their grief
But this is not good press for anyone and it's unfortunate

I will admit, I was frustrated to the point of being near tears at times, but I had been there since 10. Yet, there was no way in hell I was leaving, and truthfully, when Drake hit the stage all of that anger and frustration dissipated. It was So Far Gone because he absolutely KILLED IT!

If people on here would be honest, the frustration wasn't so much out of the wait, but the garbage opening acts that hit the stage. I sincerely hope Drizzy comes back to Chicago. We LOVE him here, and we love the ATF. I was excited to see 40 and Future. You all worked hard, and it was well worth it, fight aside. Can't wait for Thank Me Later!
