Drake Surprises Brooklyn Crowd for ‘Block Party’

This guy's up to something.

By Hayden Wright

Mad Decent Block Party attendees in Brooklyn expected a lineup that included Boombox Cartel, DJ Snake, Slushii and more. However, their ticket value practically tripled when Drake made a surprise appearance last night. The Canadian rapper took the stage during Boi-1da’s set and performed some of his biggest hits of late: “Jumpman,” “Back to Back,” “Energy,” and the DJ Khaled collaboration, “For Free.”
