Drake stays ready for any show and any performance and for last night, he was there ready for ACL (Austin City Limits) in Austin, Texas.
“I knew I was coming to Austin, Texas, so I tried to put something special together,” he said after blazing through three brief renditions of “Legend,” “Trophies,” “Headlines” and “Over,” a couple of which were marked by dazzlings bursts of pryo.
The 28-year-old hip-hop star gave his fans a treat when he began the words, “I consider Texas my second home … there’s no love like Texas love,” he proclaimed – before the reveal of that “something special,” all the while barreling through a dozen career spanning snippets, including critically acclaimed cuts “Tuesday,” “Blessings,” “HYFR” and “Started From the Bottom.”
“All I have for you tonight is a reward for being the best crowd I’ve seen all f—ing year,” he said after leading a thunderous a cappella chant-along to the latter track’s final chorus.
With that being said, Future came onto the stage to perform a hat-trick of his own material, “F–k Up Some Commas,” “Trap N—-s” and “Where Ya At,” with Drake’s verse on that final song to serve as the connection to the live debuts of two of their latest songs, “Jump Man” and “Big Rings” off the duo’s brand new mixtape, What a Time to Be Alive.
