Drake pays respects to the late Nipsey Hussle.
Drake's currently overseas for the "Assassination Vacation" tour along with Baka Not Nice and Tory Lanez. Drake tours are in high demand and in international markets, the rapper typically has to book multiple shows in one city to appease his fanbase. Tonight, the rapper kicked off his seven-night residency at London's O2 arena, which the Canadian sensation managed to have switched to the "O3," as he mentioned in "God's Plan." During his first night in London, the rapper made sure to pay his respects to the late Nipsey Hussle.
"Somebody that provided for his people, somebody that always treated you with respect when they saw you. Somebody that commanded respect when you walk in the room. So I really want to do this show for Nip tonight," he said with a shot in his hand while projecting a picture of Nipsey Hussle. "London, as long as you’ll have me back I’ll stand in the middle of this building and give you everything I’ve fucking got. Cheers to my brother, rest easy my g. London, I love you."
Drake paid homage to Nipsey Hussle last on Instagram with a heartbreaking tribute. "I was so happy watching from distance fam nobody ever talks down on your name you were a real one to your people and to the rest of us," he wrote. "I’m only doing this here cause I want the world to know I saw you as a man of respect and a don. Rest easy my g."
His first night at London's O2 arena also included the premiere of the trailer for Drake's long-awaited Top Boy revamp.
