Drake Calls Kanye West A "God" At OVO Fest 2013

Drake is also joined by Lil Wayne, Diddy, Ma$e, TLC, A$AP Rocky, French Montana, J. Cole, Big Sean and others at this year's OVO Fest.

Drake's OVO Fest featured several guest performers Monday (August 5). 

Kanye West hit the stage at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, Canada, performing "New Slaves," "All of the Lights" and "Can't Tell Me Nothing."

"This is one of my first mentors, one of the first people to embrace me, my role model," Drake said of West. "Y'all make some noise for the god that is Kanye West." 

West also spoke about Drake. 

"There's a lot of rappers that came in the game that wasn't able to do something like this for their city," Kanye said. "Me and [Jay Z] would've never made Watch the Throne if this nigga wasn't putting pressure on us like that." 

"That was probably the most important moment in my career to date," Drake said in a post-show interview with MTV. "I think me and Kanye have wanted to express our respect for each other for a long time and sometimes Rap, the business, the competitiveness and just the heart behind it, forces you to not talk to the people you quietly admire."

The interaction between West and Drake can be seen below via RealTalkNY.

Diddy and Ma$e were introduced as guest performers, as well. They performed "Feel So Good" and "Mo Money Mo Problems." "This is history," Diddy said. "Thanks Drake, for bringing us together." The two have been associates and at odds during different times in their careers. Last year, Ma$e left Diddy's Bad Boy Entertainment after disagreements with the label. "You know how Puff is," Ma$e said of Diddy. "I love him but you gon' cut your arm off to get free [from Bad Boy]." 

Lil Wayne also hit the stage for "HYFR" and "Good Kush & Alcohol (Bitches Love Me)." TLC performed "FanMail," "Waterfalls" and "No Scrubs," which featured Lil Mama performing Left Eye's material. Big Sean joined Drake for "All Me" and The Weeknd joined Drizzy for "Crew Love." J. Cole and Miguel hit the stage for "Power Trip" and French Montana performed "Ain't Worried About Nothin'" and "Pop That." A$AP Rocky came out for "Fuckin' Problems" and "Wild for the Night." 

Wale and James Blake performed as opening acts at the OVO Fest, which is in its fouth year. Last year's event featured A$AP Rocky and 2 Chainz, among others.
