Jay-Z, Eminem make cameos at Drake’s Toronto festival

If there’s one thing we discovered about Drake this weekend, it’s that the dude delivers. The musician’s Toronto music festival, OVO—which we assume was scheduled in part to drum up some good press in the city after his negative comments in the New York Times—took place on Sunday with performances from the previously announced Young Jeezy and Bun B. But when Eminem’s part in “Forever” came, Marshall Mathers himself appeared onstage to thundering cheers. “I’m so fucking proud of my city tonight,” the rapper told the crowd. “I said I want you to give them the anthem that they deserve tonight.” And just then, Jay-Z emerged onstage to join Drake in a rendition of his hit track “Run This Town.” Don’t believe us? Take a look:
