blame it on JES7 March 20, 2016

Saturday evening served as part of the bookend for SXSW 2016 — with Sunday marking the festival’s official closing for the year. Obviously, something big was expected to go down, and there was a sense of excitement which seemed to envelop the atmosphere, and that same ambience also lit up social media.

Shortly after Yo Gotti closed out his set at the Fader Fort, Drake — fresh off joining Rihanna on the Miami leg of her ANTI World Tour — and his OVO cohorts hit the stage, much to the surprise of fans.

Recent (and mysterious) OVO signees dvsn opened things up, with Roy Wood$ following up a short set, including his recent release “How I Feel.” Majid Jordan and PARTYNEXTDOOR closed things out before Drake entered the stage to perform one a few songs — with an announcement that Views From the 6 will be arriving soon, along with an upcoming tour.
