London may be experiencing dizzying heat this week, but nowhere was hotter in the capital than the 2018 Wireless Festival. 

The annual extravaganza, which once again returned to Finsbury Park for a three-day stint, played host to performances from the likes of J.Cole, Stormzy, Rick Ross, Giggs, Davido, and Migos.

Few, if any, however could rival the rapturous response that greeted surprise guest Drake. 

Currently riding the wave of success with his blockbuster ‘Scorpion’ album, the Toronto titan had been rumored to make an appearance after Sunday headliner DJ Khaled dropped out due to “travel issues.”

Revellers were clearly elated with their replacement given the thunderous response which greeted his arrival on stage at the apex of Giggs’ performance.

Though brief, Drizzy’s set masterfully magnetised all in attendance, who in unison belted out smashes such such as ‘God’s Plan’ and ‘Nice For What.’

With music’s reigning royal closing out the multi-day spectacle, it made for a fitting climax to Urban music’s most resonating festival.

Once she announced online she was reduced to using a DJ at a recent show due to firing her band for allegedly ditching their performance, Tank came to their defense and wanted to assure readers they did no such thing. Once Braxton caught wind of his words (which ultimately implied she was lying about the incident), she didn’t take it too kindly.

When one is a titan of Drake‘s stature, promo is very much on their terms.

As such, the Canadian continues his love-affair with London by pairing up with one of the region’s most renown Rap video platforms – Link Up TV.

In his first “performance” since dropping new album ‘Scorpion,’ the star seized the stage to drop a freestyle — and he didn’t hold back.

He rapped:

“I know so much sh*t that I cannot expose. I keep it inside and I laugh on my own
Got all the tea and I’m hottin’ it up.”

While elsewhere, he threw jabs at G.O.O.D Music his competition when adding:

“You’re droppin’ some sh*t but that sh*t was a bust
They got no direction, they followin’ us
I come from a city that they never touch
Your man is a goofy and he can get brushed.”
