Jay-Z, Eminem Make Surprise Appearance on Drake Tour

Hip-hop's hottest rookie also joined by Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Fabolous at Toronto gig

August 2, 2010 3:47 PM ET

Drake finished out October's Very Own Tour with an all-star lineup of surprise guests at Toronto's Ovo festival last night. Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Fabolous, Bun B and Kardinall Offishall joined the rapper for his headlining set — but the biggest surprise came when Eminem and Jay-Z made surprise cameos as well, proving once and for all that Drake is easily this year's hottest new MC.

Eminem, who is gearing up for a string of September shows with Jay-Z, was the first of the two hip-hop heavyweights to appear onstage, joining Drake for a killer version of "Forever." Later on, after teasing appearances by Kanye West and André 3000, Drake asked the house DJ to play "something from a man who's inspired me more than anybody else in my fucking life." After a few bars of Jay-Z's "Public Service Announcement," the man himself came out to treat the Toronto crowd to his hit "Run This Town."' Check out video of Drake with Eminem above and Jay-Z's appearance below.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
