Drake brings LeBron James onstage during Ohio concert


Fans captured the whole thing.

Just as Drake foretold, Summer ’16 has been a big one.

The rapper’s tour with Future has featured a lot of surprise celebrity guests these past few weeks: Rihanna and Kanye West appeared in Toronto, J.Cole and T.I. joined him in New York. But the latest star to drop in definitely took the cake in terms of hometown love. 

Fresh off of signing a $100 million contract ensuring he’ll stay with the Cleveland Cavaliers for the next three years, LeBron James joined Drake onstage at his Columbus, Ohio, show over the weekend. Needless to say, the crowd went wild. 

The rapper posted a photo to his Instagram Sunday:

But fans did him one better. YouTuber OhioIsOnFire was able to film the entire appearance and uploaded it to their channel. 

Drake even changed the lyrics to “Pop Style” for the NBA star: “Bronny, Bronny had to handle that one his way.”

For an Ohio Drake fan, it’s hard to imagine things getting much better.
