Drake revealed a surprise he had waiting for fans attending his Summer Sixteen tour stop in Columbus, Ohio on Saturday night, [August 13] when he brought out the king himself, Lebron James. As is to be expected from the hometown crowd, James walked out onto the Nationwide Arena stage to rousing applause.
“Ohio, if you don’t make some noise for ‘the King’ right now you’re out of your mind,” Drake said as he announced the presence of the Cleveland Cavs captain. He then led the three-time champ into assisting him in hyping the crowd for his performance of “Pop Style,” during which he substituted Lebron’s name in for one of the song’s lyrics, rhyming, “Bronny, Bronny had to handle that one his way.”
Fans in attendance had plenty to cheer about in light of James having signed a three-year, $100 million extension with the Cavs, earlier this week. Lebron returned the love, asking the crowd to clap for the headliner, along with opening act, Future. “And one more time, for the man who came back home and brought a motherfucking championship instead of doing anything different. Make some noise for the King; LeBron James is here tonight. It’s love, man. That’s a hometown hero right there,” Drake then hollered before the crowd saw James off with chants of “MVP!”
