August 5th 2012, Toronto OVO Fest. My boo thang Drake slayed at his own, yes his own, music festival third year running.
All true Drake fans know about OVO Fest. It’s Drake’s annual music festival he holds in his hometown of Toronto.
He invites a number of guest artists to perform with him – this year it was Young Money crew member Nicki Minaj (no surprises there), Snoop Dogg aka Lion, A$AP Rocky, Rick Ross,Waka Flocka Flame, French Montana, Meek Mill, Weeknd and 2 Chainz.
For all those outside the TO who didn’t get to go to OVO Fest this year, don’t worry I got you covered with photos and killer video footage that’ll have you scrambling for tickets next year.

Massive shout out and thanks to Kevin Morris for this valuable footage.
Intro, “Crew Love” and Tattoo Reveal
“Pop That” Drake ft. French Montana & Rick Ross
“Make Me Proud” Drake ft. Nicki Minaj
“Beez In Da Trap” Nicki Minaj ft. 2 Chainz
(I can’t even lie at this point if I was there – my panties would be thrown on stage, just sayin…)
“Amen” Drake ft. Meek Mill
“No Lie” 2 Chainz ft. Drake
If we don’t, I will regret for the rest of my life that I didn’t see him in Nashville when I was in Tennessee this year during his Club Paradise Tour – unless we can get a group together and we head to TO for OVO Fest in 2013!
Until then, I will wear my Drake tee with pride that my girl bought back from New Orleans Voodoo Festival where she saw the man himself perform. Swoon!
What do you think of the 2012 OVO Fest footage? Are you encouraged to go?
