The Savage Mode rapper surprised fans with Drizzy as a special guest on Wednesday night (October 19), where they performed their No. 1 single “Jimmy Cooks” for the first time. The performance took place at the Forbes Arena, with Drizzy also performing “Nonstop.”
Sponsored by Pandora, the show served as a joint homecoming concert for affiliate HBCU schools Morehouse and Spelman. While on stage, Drake took a moment to c
redit 21 Savage as the the one for making his appearance happen.
“Along with OVO, I really live this 4L shit,” he said. “By the way, I didn’t get invited to this show. Nobody from Morehouse asked me to perform. My brother brought me here, so make some noise for 21 Savage.”
21 Savage opened up about his relationship with Drake in 2018, revealing he was the only person who got him a gift for his birthday and gave him his flowers for giving new artists a spotlight.
“Drake brought me [a red Ferrari 488] for my birthday to ride around L.A,” he told GQ at the time. “He the only one that got me something for my birthday that year. Hell yeah, don’t nobody else get me shit but Drake. Drake just a genuine-ass good-hearted person.
“He did a lot of shit he didn’t have to do. He do a lot of shit for up-and-coming rappers, period. I don’t think he get his respect for that. Every fuckin’ year, he pull a new artist up. Ain’t no other artist on his level do that shit.”
