Check Out All of Drake’s Special Guests on the Summer Sixteen Tour
The Summer Sixteen tour kicked off on July 20 in Austin, TX and has been star-studded ever since. Everyone from Lebron James to Rihanna has stopped through to show Drizzy support on his 32-date trek and Future has even brought out a few guests too. With the tour still in its infancy, many more guests are likely to come along but so far, the guests have been top-notch.
The first few dates were more about Drizzy and Future establishing the tone of the tour and fans didn't get to see a big guest until Kanye West met up with the WATTBA collaborators during their Chicago stop on July 28. Ye performed "Pop Style," "Famous" and "Father Stretch My Hands" before taking time to comment on his highly publicized back and forth with Taylor Swift. “I’m so glad my wife has Snapchat," Ye told the crowd that night. "Now ya’ll can know the truth & can’t nobody talk shit about Ye no more.”
The next guests fans saw on the Summer Sixteen Tour were the those featured on the A-list packed OVO Fest stop. Fans lost their minds at the sight of Rihanna, who performed both nights, both times treating the crowd to a grind session with Drake. Kanye returned for OVO Fest and even announced collaboration album with Drake. French Montana also hit the stage for the seventh annual show.
NYC was just as celeb-filled and amidst beef with Hot 97's Funkmaster Flex, saw appearances from freshly announced Knick Derrick Rose, T.I., Dipset (sans Jim Jones), Remy Ma, Fat Joe, A$AP Ferg, A Boogie, J. Cole, Charlamagne Tha God and others. Future even brought out Young Thug to publicly display their reconciliation for the first time.
Other recent guests on the tour were the reigning champ of the NBA, Lebron James, who was a surprise guest at the Ohio stop on August 13 and Eminem graced the stage with Drake in Detroit on August 16. The Young Money don himself, Lil Wayne, also joined Drake in Philly. Weezy popped up again in Houston with Bun B and in Los Angeles with Rihanna and DJ Khaled. In Oakland on Sept. 14; Steph Curry, Draymond Green, Nef the Pharaoh and Too Short were guests. And at his most recent show in Inglewood on Sept. 29, Drake called upon all the big dogs, bringing out Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, Big Sean and French Montana.
Along with the host of surprise appearances, the tour has been full of drama trickling from lingering beefs. With both more guests and likely more drama in store for the tour, check out the celebs that have stopped through the Summer Sixteen tour so far.
