Kanye West And Drake reunited on stage in Toronto Monday night as part of West's "Yeezus" tour.

Kanye West wrapped up his 2013 North American "Yeezus" tour with a bang Monday night at Toronto's Air Canada Centre by bringing out the city's hometown hero, Drake.

As seen in a YouTube clip, Kanye does his portion of the Drake song "Forever" before Drake emerges onstage roughly 90 seconds into the clip. From there, the two work the stage as the crowd goes off.

"Toronto!" Kanye says before Drake performs his song "All Me" as West dances around behind him. "All hail Yeezus in the motherf--ker tonight!" Drake says to close before almost bowing before West and Drake embrace. The performance marked another collaboration between the two in Toronto this year after Drake brought West out during his OVO Fest at the Molson Amphitheatre this past summer.

But the rapping duo did more than perform while in Toronto.

Another YouTube clip shows the duo partying after West's first Toronto gig Sunday night at The Hoxton. West is seen beside Drake sporting a red hockey jersey with Toronto on the front and shaking some fans' hands nearby. At one point West was shown in another clip literally swinging from the rafters

The Toronto two-night stand began with a rather lengthy rant by West during the Dec. 22 gig. According to Canada.com, West began the speech during the closing outro to "Runaway" by trying to explain to fans the greatness and ambition they were currently witnessing.

"See the thing is, I'm talking to you all like, 10 years from now," West said at one point. "Ten years from now just remember what I said. Because, with the media at least, you know what I'm saying? You've got some older writers that understand what real music is like and all that shit like,' 'F--k it, that's 'Ye, let him do what he wants.' Then you got some people who are disgruntles and shit, sad about life, and they want to take everything I've ever said that might not be the right thing that they all thought you wouldn't be into and try to (damn) it. I think in the past three months, the shit I've been saying, you're all going to look at it in 10 years and be like, 'That was very inspirational, actually.' Just to take those risks, you know what I'm saying? I had to scale back and I took those motherf--king risks. But for me the only risk in life is not taking risks."

After a fan asked him to take his mask off, West chastised the fan briefly before getting back into his quasi-sermon, even referencing Tiger Woods and Barbara Walters at one point.

"I was looking at that Barbara Walters sh-t and somebody that I like a lot, I've never met him but I like a lot, is Tiger Woods and they show him saying, 'You know, I just feel like I'm a role model,'" West says. "You see, that's f--ked up right there. I don't feel like I'm a role model, I'm an artist. I'm expressing. If anything, if I can inspire people to express themself, that's great, and if they don't that's great too. I don't give a f--k. I don't feel no responsibility to nothing except to create what is on my mind and bringing it to you guys."

West -- who felt people would be "writing reports that were at this concert right now and they're going to feel the passion, the creativity, the surrealness that went into this" -- concluded by saying he was "into designing the future, I'm into motivation, I'm into inspiration."

As for Drake, the rapper will be both the host and musical guest during the Jan. 18 episode of Saturday Night Live. The announcement came during the Dec. 21 show featuring Jimmy Fallon and musical guest Justin Timberlake.
