New York, NY -- Drake surprised fans with a new project on Thursday night and while we are all grateful for If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late, we have a few questions surrounding the release. Thankfully the 6 God answered the number one question on our minds when he took the stage at Irving Plaza in New York on Friday (Feb. 13) night. So, is the project a mixtape or an album?
"Trust me, it's just a mixtape, I'm still working on an album," he said as the crowd at the Sprite-sponsered show cheered.
Friday night's NBA All-Star Weekend show was Drizzy's first since dropping the tape and after a DJ set from Q-Tip and a new MC competition with Nitty Scott MC and Timeless Truth, the Young Money star stormed the stage shortly after 10 p.m. He began rapping along to "Legend," If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late's opening track.
From there Drake tore through a number of hits and brought out some special guests too. Ob Obrien, Makonnen, Travis Scott and Kanye West all joined Drake on stage. West hit the stage, presented Drizzy with a pair of his new Adidas 750 Boost sneakers and then rapped his verse to his "Don't Like" remix.
When Drake was done he turned the stage over to the night's headliner Nas, who ran through his 20-plus years of hit records and classic album cuts.
