Drake Brings Out Dipset & 21 Savage At Apollo Theater

Hip Hop News with Wanda Davidson

On Saturday (January 21), Drake invited 21 Savage and Dipset to perform at his SiriusXM-sponsored Apollo Theater show. At the iconic Harlem theater, he performed one of two shows scheduled. He is also rumored to be doing a summer tour with 21 Savage, which has yet to be officially confirmed.

However, any performance between OVO and Slaughter Gang is bound to attract attention. The release of their collaborative album, Her Loss, last year established both rappers as almost iconic duos. When 21 entered the stage, the crowd helped them sing “Rich Flex.” A whole theater asked 21 to do something for them.

In the crowd and on social media, Dipset’s appearance generated a lot of excitement. Cam’ron, Jim Jones, Juelz Santana, and Freeky Zeeky performed “I Really Mean It,” “Dipset Anthem,” and “We Fly High (Ballin’)” together. The “Nice For What” artist even wore Cam’ron’s iconic pink fur coat and hat.

“These guys right here from Harlem made us dress different, talk different, walk different, rap different — all the way in Canada,” he said.

However, some attentive Drake listeners might not be surprised by the link-up. In fact, his previous single “Diplomatic Immunity” might not be directly about the group, but it’s a reference nonetheless. Also, he’s not part of Dipset, but Drake recently gave Fabulous his flowers, another New York rapper of a similar era.

On the other hand, 21 Savage helped Drizzy perform “Privileged Rappers,” “Spin Bout You,” “Jimmy Cooks,” and “Knife Talk” as well. Other classics he performed at his show include “Marvin’s Room,” “Best I Ever Had,” “Legend,” “Know Yourself,” and many more. In fact, he performed about 41 songs during his set. With one more show scheduled for this Sunday (January 22), Drake’s likely to have another fantastic performance in the books.
