Students at Ryerson University in Toronto were shocked yesterday when the 6ix God himself showed up at their 6-cent concert.
But before Drake stole the show, it was Much Digital Studio’s Creator Sickick who warmed up the crowd with his set of EDM tracks, including his versions of Rihanna’s “Work” and Drake’s own “Hotline Bling.”
“I had a blast performing and opening for @champagnepapi and this show today,” he said in an Instagram caption. “I will continue to push boundaries and grow my Sickick Army!”
I read a quote once that said, "If you don't fit in, you're probably doing something right." Being different is a beautiful thing. They may not understand you right away, but if you don't break, you will win them all over. I absolutely love performing in this fashion and using very obscure methods to create sound and entertain audiences. I had a blast performing and opening for @champagnepapi and this show today. I will continue to push boundaries and grow my Sickick Army! 👊💪 #PandaPandaPandaPanda Huge shoutout to @rajangahunia love u homie
Hot off the release of his highly anticipated album Views, Drake was all over the city this weekend, making appearances court-side at the Raptors’ Game 7 last night and surprising everyone the night before with an impromptu performance for basketball fans at Jurassic Park outside the Air Canada Centre.
But his Ryerson stint at the 6-cent concert wasn’t the first time Drake has shouted out this Toronto institution. Back in September of last year, Drizzy Instagrammed a Drake-themed banner Ryerson had posted on campus during frosh week.
As if that wasn’t cool enough, he surprised the student body again by showing up at Future’s frosh concert, accompanied by the notorious Drake fan/social media mogul/City Councillor Norm Kelly.
If you’re reading this, it’s probably too late to enroll as a Ryerson University student.
