Dressed in Cam’Ron famous pink mink, Drake showed homage on stage for the group by telling the crowd, “These guys right here from Harlem made us dress different, talk different, walk different, rap different all the way in Canada.” Before the group left the stage, Dipset gifted Drake with a customized OVO x Dipset bracelet.

“I appreciate all of those people that stick by me…but I deeply appreciate everybody for continuing to support us.” He added, “I’ve thought about a bunch of things in life, but at this moment in time none of those things are stopping making music for you, so I’ll be here for you a little at least.
