Yesterday, Kanye West played three Drizzy Drake songs during his set at the 2014 Wireless Festival in London, England.
This was because Drake had to cancel his appearance last minute at the UK music festival, due to being sick, and so Yeezy replaced him.
You can watch Kanye play “Trophies“, “We Made It“, and “All Me” for fans in the clip above and read what Drizzy said about Ye playing his songs below!
Unfortunately, Drake will not be able to attend and perform at the 2014 Wireless Festival in London and Birmingham this weekend, which he was due to headline. You can read Drizzy‘s message to his fans below:
“To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won’t be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can’t wait to come back to make more incredible memories together.”
