There’s no beef in paradise. Drake’s star-studded Club Paradise Tour touched down in Atlanta on Sunday night, and, among other guests, the Young Money rapper summoned Future to the stage for a performance, although there had been some mild friction between the two last year.
Drake first linked up with Future on the Atlanta rapper’s hit single “Tony Montana,” but when Drizzy failed to show up for the video shoot, Future had a few words for him, calling the non-cameo a “slap in my face.”
Time heals wounds, however, and when MTV News caught up with Future outside of Aaron’s Amphitheater at Lakewood in Atlanta, he confirmed that all was well between him and Drake. “It was nothing. [I got a call] like, ’Man, I’mma put you on the jet, come through,’ ” Future said of the conversation with Drake that made the guest appearance possible. “I was in Orlando, Florida, because I [had] a show so it was just a matter of the time, and we timed it down to the T, and I’m here.
“[It’s the] first time we performed together onstage; it’s turnt up,” he added. “[There are] no issues, and we’ve got a lot more to come, so stay tuned — me and Drizzy got some more sh– coming.”
French Montana, Meek Mill and J. Cole gave opening performances at the Atlanta show, but the night was heavy with local talent from ATL. In addition to a set from 2 Chainz, Waka Flocka Flame joined Drake for “Round of Applause,” T.I. popped up for the “Spend It” remix, and Future followed suit to perform “Tony Montana.”
If a new collaboration between Drake and Future is really on the way, chances are we’ll be seeing them on the stage together again soon enough.
Are you glad Drake and Future have put the friction behind them? Let us know in the comments.
