Drake Turns OVO Fest Into a Political Rally And Declares Victory

While federal politicians began campaigning across Canada on Sunday, the following day Drake handily won the re-election as hip-hop's prime minister after a recent scandal threatened to derail his rule. OVO Fest has always been less a festival than a political rally for its founder Drake, the self-declared 6 God of a city he single-handedly rebranded The 6. The event sells out on the strength of Drake's name alone--all the headline-making sure guests are kept under wraps until they hit the stage.
