Drake‘s string of London stops on his Assassination Vacation Tour have been full of surprises. On Thursday night (April 11), Drizzy brought J. Cole out as a special guest, much to the delight of The O2 Arena crowd. The Dreamville king performed his latest single “Middle Child” in what looks to be the Rolex Drizzy gifted him, as the 6 God went on to compliment Cole’s place in hip-hop and hinted at the idea of them working together again.
Jermaine referred to Drake as “top five, if not, goddamn arguably the best rapper to ever come in this motherfucker.” The OVO rapper then returned the favor. “When I think of all my earliest memories there was always one guy that was always right there doing the same thing as me,” he said of Cole. “Taking care of his people, showin’ love, and it’s this man right here. He hasn’t changed since the first day I met him.”
After telling London that he had started working on a new album, Drake raised the stakes on having been in the studio with his “In the Morning” collaborator. “I can’t wait to make some new music with you. I know we been working. I can’t wait to let these people hear it,” he shared with the audience.
