Drake doesn’t take his fans for granted, that’s for damn sure. From the moment he stepped out on his futuristic stage at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn last night (October 28), Drake was doing all that he possibly could to make sure every single person in that crowd had the time of his or her life. Certainly not an easy task, but one Drake was more than willing to attempt.
The Canadian rapper might not have the mic skills of say, Kendrick Lamar or the artistic vision of Kanye West, but for what he lacks in those departments he more than makes up for in showmanship. Perhaps this harkens back to his Degrassi days, which he told the crowd was the bottom where he actually started from.
Drake’s setlist is for those who have a bit of ADD. He tends to switch songs after only one verse, picking out, what can only be imagined are his favorite bits. And from the looks of the crowd last night, they are their favorites too.
