Above, you can watch some footage from Drake‘s 4th annual OVO Festival that took place in Toronto, Canada on August 5th, captured French Montana‘s cameraman. Drizzy can be seen performing on stage with Big Sean and Montana, watching Diddy and Ma$e perform with Wale, and having fun backstage with Miguel and Cassie.

In related news, Drizzy Drake chopped it up with MTV after the concert to discuss why he apologized for J. Cole‘s autism lyric on his “Jodeci” freestyle. Check out the interview after the jump below!

“I think we’re just both genuinely good guys. I don’t want anybody to be offended, and Cole is the nicest guy in the world, so I’m sure it was the worst day ever for him, as far as being attacked by people.”

“It’s a shame that he got attacked like that because he’s such a great guy and that’s why I chose to step in and say sorry as well because I felt like — I’m not gonna let him sink by himself, like, ‘Oh that wasn’t me.’ It was my song and at the end of the day, I think everybody knows me and Cole are both young guys that stand for something positive.”

“It was just important to reinforce that. A lot of people see it as a cop-out — ‘oh, you’re apologizing’ — but sometimes it doesn’t pay to be that rebellious. If an apology is what it takes, then fine.”

“At the end of the day, we rap, we say things, and sometimes you can’t factor in everybody that’s going to be personally offended by the bars that you write. Sometimes it’s just for the effect of finishing a punch line, so there is something to be said for being careless with your lyrics, but writing is a also free-mind thing. That’s what rap is — it’s just wherever your mind goes.”
