According to numerous fan reports, Drake has been performing “All Me” at various Would You Like A Tour? shows, energetically rapping Big Sean’s verse verbatim with help from sold-out crowds.
That changed last night, as attendees of WYLAT’s Detroit concert got an early Christmas gift from Drizzy, who surprised fans by bringing out special guest Big Sean to perform his punchline-heavy finale on the hit record.
After the duo delivered a memorable moment, the Toronto-based artist acknowledged the G.O.O.D. Music MC as the “King Of Detroit,” and his throne was evident as his hometown crowd at the Palace of Auburn Hills agreed with an announcement-interrupting round of applause.
Big Sean then went on to recognize Drake as “one of the realest in the industry” and thanked him for his role as an idol and mentor in his career, claiming the Nothing Was The Same rapper is “as influential as Kanye West” to him. He also confirmed Drake would be not only a contributor but also “a huge part” of his next album.
With a catchy chart-topping anthem like “All Me” on their resume, these two stars should bring something worth the wait on Sean’s upcoming project.—Christian Bonoan
