Drake Previews ‘Trophies,’ Brings Out Busta Rhymes, A$AP Mob at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center

Subscribe to Hot 107.9 on

Toronto took over Brooklyn last night as Drake‘s ‘Would You Like a Tour?’ rolled into town. Following sets from PARTYNEXTDOOR, Future and Miguel, who serve as the opening acts on the ongoing fall roadshow, the OVO star performed a plethora of hits from his catalog in front of a sold-out crowd at the Barclays Center.

Drizzy had a few tricks up his sleeve for this show, though. During an intermission, tour DJ Future the Prince treated the audience to an extended preview of ‘Trophies,’ a Hit-Boy-produced track that was first heard in the trailer for Drake’s new album, ‘Nothing Was the Same,’ and has been eagerly awaited since.

Unlike the first time it was previewed, though, here we get to enjoy a snippet of Aubrey’s first verse. “Got hit records on my demo / Did y’all boys not get the memo? / I do not stay at the Intercontinental / And anything I got is not a rental / I own it, motherf–er,” he opens over the majestic, horn-driven beat.

Later in the night, Drake mixed it up by bringing out a few hometown heroes. Brooklyn’s own Busta Rhymes was met with roaring applause as he hit the stage and played his 1997 classic, ‘Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See.’ Then, Harlem’s finest A$AP Ferg got the place amped with ‘Work’ and ‘Shabba’ before A$AP Rocky performed a duet of ‘F—in’ Problems’ with the host.

The OVO leader apparently wasn’t shy in praising Lord Flacko in front of his own people, either.
