It’s no secret that the state of Texas loves Drizzy, and vice versa. Drake has been championing the Lone Star State, and in particular, the city of Houston for years, making direct references in his music. So it made perfect sense that the 6 God headline the Austin City Limits Music festival Saturday.
Throughout the evening, Drake ran through a number of hits, including “Blessings,” “Truffle Butter,” and paid tribute to one if his heroes, DJ Screw, reportedly launching into “June 27th.”
However, the highlight of the show came when J. Cole stepped foot on the Samsung stage, surprising everyone with his presence (Cole, just hours ago, was in Washington, D.C. for the #JusticeOrElse celebration). “This is my brother for real,” Drake told the crowd, before letting Jermaine launch into a few cuts from his 2014 surprise album Forest Hills Drive.
Drake also revealed that a video for “Hotline Bling” would be arriving soon, and that they just finished wrapping up shooting and editing for the visual.
