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.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
