Drake on his own can carry a song—hate it or love it, but it’s true. The Canadian singer-slash-rapper-slash-actor certainly knows his way around a hit. A guest verse from Drake either adds a certain something to a track or ends up taking over the song altogether. It’s a gift and a curse in a wayre: a gift for Drake, but a curse for anyone who invites him into the fold.

As Drizzy readies the release of his third studio album Nothing Was The Same, we take a trip back to Drake’s role as a guest. Whether part of his YMCMB crew or another rap team, Drake shows up and delivers. Check out Drake’s best assists.
