Exclusive: Watch Drake Perform 'Successful' in New Doc 'Homecoming: The Lost Footage'
A 23-year-old Drake performs in Toronto in this new live clip.
The new Drake documentary is showing in select AMC theaters for tonight only, so there's a good chance you won't be able to catch Drake's Homecoming: The Lost Footage. But Billboard has an exclusive premiere of a special clip, featuring Drizzy performing "Successful" in his home town of Toronto.
The film features the rest of this 2009 Sound Academy performance (from just before he signed with Young Money) and more archival footage. However, Drake has tweeted that he does not support film and that neither he, nor OVO had any part in it. For these comments, Drake has been sued for trade libel by SpectiCast, the production company behind the film.
The Los Angeles Times reported March 16 that Drake agreed to let the concert be filmed back in 2009 and was paid $15,000 and promised a 15% royalty if the footage was ever used. One of the film's co-executive producers, Mark Berry, told The Times he thinks Drake is lashing out at the film because he thinks he deserves a larger cut.
A rep for Drake hadn't responded to Billboard's request for comment at press time.
Drake's Homecoming also features appearances from Bun B, J. Prince, and Jas Prince, the CEO of Young Empire Music Group, which discovered Drake before he signed with Young Money.
