This Sunday, Drake will present his 3rd annual OVO Fest at the Molson Amphitheatre in Toronto. As with past OVO Fests, surprise guests are a huge part of the show. In the weeks leading up to the event, people start to speculate who might show up. At past Fests, Drake has already brought out surprise guests such as Jay-Z, Eminem and Stevie Wonder. Who might show up in 2012? 10 Possible Surprise Guests At Drake's OVO Fest 2012.
SNOOP DOGG AKA SNOOP LION AKA STOP THIS
Snoop Dogg...um excuse me...Snoop Lion will be in town for this weekend's Caribana festivities and it's highly likely Snoop will show up for Drake's OVO Fest on Sunday. I mean, it would literally be like Drake having Bob Marley there...except not like that at all.
The Bawse is riding high with news that his latest album, "God Forgives, I Don't" will make a massive chart debut next week. What better way for Ross to celebrate than to surprise thousands and hit the stage at OVO Fest? Meek Mill was just added to the bill (along with French Montana) so Rozay would only make sense. Drake better have that cheese backstage though.
Yes, Jay-Z already shocked everyone with a surprise appearance during the first OVO Fest:
Could 2012 bring appearance #2? Here's why it might: Drake was a late addition to Jay-Z's upcoming 'Made In America' Music Festival...is it possible there was a little you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours? (NO FRANK OCEAN). I mean if Ross shows up, all we need is Dr. Dre and we could see "3 Kings" live for the first time...big!
RASCALZ, CHOCLAIR, KARDINAL AND THRUST
One thing Drake hasn't really done with OVO Fest (yet) is showcase other Canadian talent...and what better way to do this than recreate the greatest Canadian posse cut of all-time live on stage this Sunday:
Drake himself said he's "keeping it cleaner than Little X direction" and...well...Little X directed this video. Kardinal is still making moves but Canadian Hip-Hop fans haven't seen Choclair, Rascalz and Canadian Hip-Hop pioneer Thrust for a minute. Not only would Drake receive MASSIVE props for this from the real Hip-Hop heads (and it might help to make people forget some of his more off the wall recent comments), but this would be an EPIC OVO moment.
TIMBALAND & MISSY
This one just kinda makes sense. Reports suggest that Drake will debut a new single at this Sunday's OVO Fest featuring the late Aaliyah. This is a big deal and Drake should really have some of Aaliyah's original team members co-signing this. I mean sure, Drizzy has a tattoo of Aaliyah on his back...but then again, The Game had a butterfly tattooed on his face. And God, who made butterflies, didn't co-sign the tattoo so The Game had to remove it. Drake can't let the same thing happen to him (especially since he's also executive producing Aaliyah's upcoming posthumous album). It would be cool if Timbo and Missy came on stage to intro the new track, and then once Drake performs, Timbo and Missy could get into some old shit and just demolish the Molson Ampitheatre in Toronto.
Ok I admit, this one is a bit of a long shot (especially with Meek Mill there as well), but what better way for Drake to say "I'm squashing the softest beef of the year" than to bring out Chris Brown? Drake could even spit his "Chris Brown line" leading into Breezy's appearance:
"On my Chris Brown shit, I'm still here, gimme that"
For good measure, Drake should bring out Common too and just wrap up all his loose ends at once.
