Watch Drake and OVO Surprise SXSW on Saturday Night

SXSW 2016 has pulled us in so many different directions, bringing massive crowds together for the love of one thing: music. On top of the ridiculous official (and unofficial) showcases happening every day, Drake was rumored to show up at the FADER Fort Saturday night... and the rumors held true.

Word got out that Aubrey was spotted in the Austin airport and that certainly solidified his performance. FADER Fort instantly packed out hundreds of OVO fans and if you weren't there ahead of time, you certainly weren't getting in.

“I got nothing else to do but be here,  with you all in Austin.”


Tracks like "Know Yourself," "Summer Sixteen," "Work" and "Jump Man" had the entire crowd bouncing -- so much hype the crowd did most of the rapping...


Additional performances were given by OVO-signed DVSN, Partynextdoor, Majid Jordan and Roy Woods. Drake was undoubtedly one of the biggest shows of the week, joining acts like John Legend, Erykah Badu, and Deftones. Champagne papi really ended SXSW on a crazy note.
