By Larisha Paul

Larisha Paul

Drake is coming. The rapper added 12 new dates to his It’s All a Blur tour with 21 Savage, his first stretch of shows in North America since the “Aubrey & the Three Migos” tour hit arenas in 2018.

The It’s All a Blur tour will kick off in Memphis, Tennessee, on June 29 and extend through Oct. 7 with a final show in Toronto, Ontario. Drake will make stops in Nashville, Houston, Miami, Atlanta, Chicago, Boston, New York, Brooklyn, Montreal, Inglewood, Los Angeles, Vancouver, and more, bringing the tour to a massive 54 shows this summer.

The new set of dates includes a fourth night of shows in both Inglewood and Brooklyn, as well as second nights in Glendale and Nashville. Drake will now also perform on new dates in Columbus, Memphis, Denver, Austin, Milwaukee, and Charlotte. The tour will close out with back-to-back hometown shows at Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena.

The tour announcement follows the reveal of J.Cole’s 2023 Dreamville Festival lineup, which features Drake as a headliner. Since his last tour, Drake has released two mixtapes – Care Package and Dark Lane Demo Tapes – and three studio albums, including 2021’s Certified Lover Boy , the 21 Savage-assisted Her Loss , and his dance music opus Honestly, Nevermind.

Drake, full name Aubrey Drake Graham, is a Canadian rapper and actor from Toronto, Ontario. Born in 1986, Drake first rose to fame as an actor but was signed to Young Money Entertainment in 2009.

At the age of 20, Drake self-released his first mix-tape, “Room For Improvement”, which featured artists such as Lupe Fiasco and Trey Songz on the tracks. The quality of the work on this first mix tape won Drake a steady following on the underground rap scene which he grew with the release of his second and third mix tapes, “Comeback Season” and “So Far Gone”. The release of “So Far Gone” saw fans download the mix tape over 2000 times in the first two hours of its release. Two tracks from the album, “Best I Ever Had” and “Successful” hit the number one and number two positions on the US Rap charts, respectively.

This success sparked a bidding war amongst various record labels to get Drake onto their rosters. Young Money Entertainment, owned by Drake’s mentor Lil Wayne, came out successful and signed the rapper in 2009. Drake’s studio albums, including “Thank Me Later”, “Take Care” and “Nothing Was the Same”, have reached the number one spot on the US Billboard chart and each has been certified Platinum.

Drake has had multiple multi-platinum selling singles, but his most successful singles include “Hold On We’re Going Home”, "Headlines", "Take Care", "Make Me Proud", and "The Motto" (where Drake was credited with popularising the acronym YOLO).

Already the winner of one Grammy Award for his 2013 album, “Take Care”, Drake has also won a host of other awards from bodies such as the BET Awards, the MTV VMAs and the Juno Awards. Drake has won millions of fans across the world as a result of the six tours he has completed since 2010. With his work ethic and talent, there is no doubt that Drake’s hard-earned success will continue for quite some time.

Live reviews

Drake's energy on the stage is just incomparable to anybody I've seen. The way he connects with the crowd is unbelievable. I think that his energy on stage just get the crowd more hyped up so it's an all around good show whenever Drake performs. From "So Far Gone" to "Nothing Was The Same," his style and the way he gets his message across have stayed the same. That's the best thing about aging, you get better as time progresses and I think that his albums are a definite reminder of how lyrically and musically talented he is. Many artist make one or two good albums, maybe a song or two every now and then, but Drake has consistently been at the top releasing good music and is just on fire. It's easier to get to the top than to stay there, but he's proving to everyone that he has enough to get to the top and knock anyone down who try's to take him down.

I love how he makes his music to fit any type of mood that you're feeling. His music isn't just slow R&B, he has some up-tempo music that will get you feeling pumped up and ready to go. I also love how he isn't like a Lil Wayne type of rapper who just uses auto tune and throws random gun verses in his songs. Every song is well thought out, every line is placed just right, the words flow with the beat and it's just magic. Even if you don't like Drake, when "Hold on, We're Going Home" comes on you're going to start singing. His songs are just too catchy, and are just classic, so 30 years from now people will still be blasting "Take Care" in their car. From what I've watched, he gives the people their moneys worth and leaves them waiting to see Drakes next move or when he's dropping his next album. He's just an all around great artist and performer, strongly recommend seeing him.

I have never been a huge fan of Drake, but after becoming hooked on the 2013 song ‘Hold on we’re going home’, I decided to check out his back catalogue of work, and was really surprised with what I found, and immediately regretted discounting him previously.

The combination of chilled out tracks in contrast with his rapping and songs like ‘Headlines’ provides such great listening variation, covering a variety of musical genres. Drake’s recent performance at this years Grammys was simply breath-taking, drawing in the audience to the narrative of ‘Hold on we’re going home’ without being showy or over the top, yet managing to merge smoothly into the track ‘Started from the Bottom’, providing the audience with a more upbeat track.

Drake’s interaction with his audience, especially on this occasion is something which he deserves credit for, maintaining his vocal performance whilst attempting to greet as many fans as possible. For me, this injection of his personality really provides the fans with a motivation to watch him live, as the dedication to both performance and fans is something that he appears to have mastered.

He really is one of those artists that you have to see live to experience the full potential of his music.

I bought my tickets to Lil Wayne VS. Drake about 4 months ago and finally got to attend the show on Saturday. Wow. My mind was blown. First of all G-Easy Opened for them and really got the crowd warmed up for the headliners. The whole show was like a video game with Drake and Lil Wayne going back and forth with old and new hits which I was so impressed with how they really mixed it up. Drake flew above the crowd suspended holding on to a stripper pole looking stand which Lil Wayne later dogged on him for. They battled back and forth about being the most featured artist and at the end I had chills because they were both saying how grateful they were for keeping each other's music alive. It was inspiring and poetic. I was impressed it was definitely the best show I have been to this year!

jaime-kintonis’s profile image

Drake puts on a great show, honestly a great performer who is very talented.

However, if you’re really going to tour with migos, and they don’t show up to do their opening set, there really should be some kind of refund. I came to the show expecting to see migos and then drake and then when migos didn’t show up I went into Drakes set disappointed about missing migos. Sure two of them came out and did 2 songs but really not enough. Instead of touring with these unreliable guys, tour by yourself, I would have no problem paying exactly what I paid for just Drake.

ben-hamilton-2’s profile image

My son is Drake biggest fan and I would love to buy him tickets to Drake concert! I would love to see him shake Drake hand. He watch all of Drake documentary, interviews and reads all of his commentaries. This playlist is all Drake and the artist he signed. He even make me sit down and watch Drake life stories. He has all of his family, friends and girlfriend listening to Drake! He ware Drake clothing line “OVO” and has his family and friends wearing OVO too! Drake to your biggest fan ever Keldrick Mumphrey he a great young man and a wonderful son! Love mom

dimayawhitemon’s profile image

Tickets were very expensive. This was one of the most I have ever paid for a concert ticket, need to make it affordable for his fans. His stage presence was brilliant and loved how much he relates himself to the UK and a personal bond with Birmingham. He did lots of his lesser successful songs which was disappointing, songs like crew love which lots of his fans LOVE came on for 10 seconds then he switched into another one. Just felt it lacked real good performances of his better known and his best songs.

Sknight123’s profile image

I really liked the show! Drake was an amazing entertainer and made me feel seen and made the show worthwhile. He really suprised me in a positive way:) I loved the sequals were he talked between the songs and the drirecting of scenery was incredible. Some of the most impressive stuff I have ever seen on a stage. He was a good singer, and I liked his tribute to Rihanna. Thanks Drake, for an awesome experience. You are way coolet than I thought

Elisegjester’s profile image

One of the best concerts I've been to in a while... Then opening act: party next door wasn't very well known But when the main acts got on stage the party was really bumpin. Great set list. I can say that I was standing and dancing the whole night and rapping along. They had an interactive portion to help decide who won the rap battle between Drake and Lil Wayne through a downloaded app on your phone. Overall awesome experience!

loveshea10’s profile image

Amazing preformance! He's very enganging and interactive with the crowed, not to mention insanely talented! There was a really cool moving light show (globes of lights that were lowered and raised to create patterns above the audiance as well as change colors). Would have loved to hear more from some of his first albums but all in all a fantastic show. Definatly was worth spending the extra money for floor seats :)

Taylor808’s profile image

The Drake vs Lil wayne show was definantly a must see! The whole competitive feel of them trying to one up eachother really drove the energy up! Drake is amazing live but honestly Lil Wayne stole the show for me. Also the production value is through the roof! It's less of a concert and more of an experience! They played all of their hits as well as their old stuff! Definantly get a seat to this one!

In the midst of escalating tensions within the rap world, with Drake vs. Kendrick Lamar and Drizzy vs. many of his former collaborators, such as Future, Metro Boomin, The Weeknd, Rick Ross and even Kanye, 21 Savage’s stance has remained notably elusive.

Despite the appearance of the 20v1 beef as the 6 God likes to frame it, Savage has maintained a conspicuous silence. Like damn bro, ya’ll just went on a whole tour. Remember “It Was All a Blur” no pun intended but IYKYK.

Get this, amidst the turmoil, Savage’s recent performance in Los Angeles has sparked intrigue. Maybe he picked a side after all.

While on his American Dream tour, while performing the collaborative hit “Rich Flex” from his 2022 project “Her Loss,” Savage had the local crowd passionately singing along to Drake’s verse, hinting at a potential allegiance.

This nod, however subtle, has not gone unnoticed by fans speculating about Savage’s stance in the ongoing drama.

Meanwhile, Metro Boomin’s cryptic social media post last month, in which he made a lot of tweets, teased a potential third installment of his and Savage’s acclaimed “Savage Mode” series, adding fuel to the speculation fire. 

The original Savage Mode dropped in 2016, and its widely praised follow-up in 2020 made a new collaboration between the two artists possible, raising questions about where Savage’s allegiances truly lie. But at 21, you just played Drizzy at your show, right?

Amidst all the drama, 21 Savage is kicking off his newest tour, bringing his signature performances to cities nationwide. With dates already announced in major cities like New York, Atlanta, and Chicago, fans eagerly anticipate the opportunity to witness Savage’s talent firsthand while speculating about the subtle messages he might be sending through his music and performances.

50 Cent's Final Lap Tour Makes History, Becoming Only Third Rap Trek Ever to Cross $100M

Over two decades since 50 Cent strapped on his bullet-proof vest and dropped his iconic Get Rich or Die Tryin' debut, the G-Unit boss is still making history.

According to Billboard Boxscore, 50's The Final Lap Tour has eclipsed $100 million in earnings, making him only the second rapper to ever surpass that mark. The "In Da Club" rapper's 2023 global trek grossed $103.6 million, with 1.05 million tickets sold across 83 shows in North America, Europe, Oceania and Asia.

Prior to 50 joining the exclusive $100 million club, Drake was the only rapper to accomplish the feat, which he did with his last two treks (2023-2024's It's All A Blur Tour and 2018's Aubrey & the Three Migos Tour).

In his decorated touring career to date, 50 Cent has grossed $150.3 million and sold 2.5 million tickets, placing him at No. 8 on the list of highest-grossing rap acts in Billboard Boxscore history. The most lucrative stop on 50's Final Lap trek brought in a combined $4.4 million gross from a pair of dates (Nov. 11 and Nov. 23, 2023) at The O2 Arena in London.

There are a couple of rappers who could possibly be joining 50 and Drizzy in the $100 million club. Kendrick Lamar's Big Steppers Tour grossed $85.4 million, though that sum doesn't account for 16 shows in Europe and Australia that haven't been reported to Boxscore.

Jay-Z has been part of two $100 million-grossing tours, but he's excluded since both (On The Run I and II) were co-headlined by his wife Beyoncé .

Elsewhere, Travis Scott is set to score his $100 million membership card this summer when his Circus Maximus Tour heads to Europe for a slew of sold-out dates. Currently, he's on the doorstep with $95 million accounted for on the North American leg.

50 isn't the only rapper making touring history these days. Nicki Minaj ‘s reunion with the Barbz in "Gag City" on her Pink Friday 2 World Tour has been lucrative, grossing $67 million and selling 439,000 tickets. It's now the highest-grossing and best-selling rap tour by a woman in Boxscore history - and it's not even over yet.

Ranking Every Song in Kendrick Lamar and Drake’s Beef

Drake and Kendrick Lamar have been trading shots for weeks now. We ranked all of the diss tracks between them.

What started with the verse heard ‘round the world has spiraled into hip-hop's most epic rap battle.

Kendrick Lamar’s verse on Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That” dropped on March 22, and it’s been pure chaos ever since, with Dot and Drake trading blows for the last month and a half. This battle has been a long time coming and has taken wild twists and turns along the way, from Drake responding and trolling Kendrick ( and half the rap game ) with “Push Ups” to Dot accepting that challenge and dropping four diss tracks in one week. Jokes have been fired, shoe sizes have been questioned, and some dark allegations have been traded.

This battle has already been cemented as one of the most exciting and impactful rap beefs of all time. With plenty of songs to wade through, here’s our ranking of the best diss tracks from both Drake and Kendrick Lamar. Since Drake fired at several rappers on his diss tracks, his songs are being graded based on his specific bars for Kendrick.

10. Drake, “Taylor Made Freestyle”

drake the tour

View this video on YouTube

Most memorable line: “Kendrick, we need ya, the West Coast savior” (Tupac voice)

Artificial intelligence became even more entangled in the rap war than it already was when Drake used AI voice augmentation technology to make himself sound like Tupac and Snoop Dogg in the first two verses of his “Taylor Made Freestyle.” The thought behind the tactic was…different, rapping through two West Coast icons to try and bait Kendrick into responding to him. 

Drake made AI Pac and Snoop sound disappointed in Dot’s silence before adding his own verse that implied Kendrick was forced to dodge Taylor Swift’s The Tortured Poets Department release date, reminding us all that he’s good at twisting internet narratives in his favor. The actual concept of using artificial intelligence in a song, on the other hand, is very wack, especially considering we’re at a moment in history where hundreds of Drake’s peers just signed a petition to protect music from the dangers of the technology. Plus the bars themselves aren’t great, and the Tupac estate threatening to sue Drake effectively shuts the whole track down.

9. Drake, “Buried Alive Interlude” Pt. 2

View this photo on Instagram

Most memorable line: “It feel like Twitter ghostwritin’ your reply”

Drake announced “Family Matters” with an Instagram post where he flips his Kendrick-assisted Take Care cut “Buried Alive Interlude” against the Compton rapper. The track itself doesn’t have an actual title and wasn’t released on streaming, but it is completely different from “Family Matters” in both sound and subject matter. In the track's first half, Drake mocks Kendrick’s flow, rapping about bringing Dot on his Club Paradise tour as an opening act back in 2012. “It feels like Twitter ghostwriting your replies,” he raps, leaning into the narrative that Kendrick’s bars on “Euphoria” had already been said by fans on social media. The track doesn’t feel like a complete thought, but it’s the perfect appetizer for “Family Matters.”

8. Drake, “The Heart Part 6”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “You haven't seen the kids in six months, the distance is wild/ Dave leavin' heart emojis underneath pics of the child”

As soon as a rapper starts explaining themself in a beef, they’re in trouble, and Drake spends the majority of “The Heart Part 6” on defense, trying to counter Kendrick’s onslaught. Dot caught Drake in a Catch-22, if he didn’t respond to the Compton rapper’s accusations that he was a child predator then he would look crazy, but if he did acknowledge them he would still…look crazy. 

Unfortunately, Drake opts to do the latter, but does not explain himself well on the track. He misinterprets the Mr. Morale & the Big Steppers song “Mother I Sober” by claiming Kendrick was molested by a family member. He then uses that misinterpretation to explain why Kendrick accused Drake of being a predator. Not only is that logic backward and wrong in general, but it was a decisive misstep that makes “The Heart Part 6” one of the weakest diss tracks in this war.

7. Kendrick Lamar, “6:16 in LA”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “A hundred niggas that you got on salary/ And twenty of 'em want you as a casualty/ And one of them is actually next to you/ And two of them is practically tired of your lifestyle/ Just don't got the audacity to tell you”

What makes “6:16 in LA” so good is how layered it is. Kendrick has taken a different thematic approach to each diss track he’s dropped so far, and here he hijacks Drake’s timestamp series of songs and fills the record with the very “quintuple entendres” that the rapper was asking for on “Taylor Made Freestyle.”

From the track’s title having several potential meanings—6/16 is Tupac’s birthday, Father’s Day, when the series Euphoria premiered, and when OJ Simpson’s murder case began—to the cryptic cover art and lush Al Green sample that features guitar credits from Drake’s father’s cousin, everything about “6:16 in LA'' feels meticulously calculated. And then there’s the lyrics. Kendrick taps into Drake’s trust issues and implies that he has a leak in his camp and that some of his close friends hate him. He does all of this while rapping at a high level. “6:16 in LA” feels like a diss from forgotten times after the war took a dark turn with “Family Matters” and “Meet the Grahams,” but it still stands as an elite track. 

6. Kendrick Lamar, “Meet the Grahams”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “Fuck a rap battle, he should die so all of these women can live with a purpose”

The gloves came off and the war went to a dark place when Kendrick challenged “Family Matters” with “Meet the Grahams” within an hour after the former dropped. Up until this point, it was still a “friendly fade” but “Meet the Grahams” takes things into dark waters as Dot uses each member of Drake’s immediate family to address him and accuse the rapper of having a substance abuse problem, being a sexual predator, and of abandoning an 11-year-old daughter. Drake immediately refuted these allegations and claimed he planted this information for Kendrick to use on “The Heart Part 6,” but the damage from the song had already been done. 

The song has little to no replay value, and Kendrick sounds like Jigsaw as he talk-raps through all of these serious allegations. It works well as a diss track, but it also uses hypothetical victims as props and calls into question why Kendrick had been holding all of this information until now. Ultimately, “Meet the Grahams” will be remembered as the song that marked the point of no return in this war.

5. Drake, “Push Ups”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “Metro shut yo hoe ass up and make some drums, nigga”

“Push Ups” is a masterclass in multitasking, a song where he efficiently takes shots at Kendrick Lamar, Future, Metro Boomin, Rick Ross, The Weeknd, and even Ja Morant with four minutes of straight bars on a beat that sounds like it could have soundtracked the Halloween franchise. 

Taking on half the rap game in one song is a daunting task, but Drake makes it look easy as he dedicates a few bars to everybody, shooting back at Kendrick, Future, Rick Ross, and The Weeknd, while delivering one of the funniest one-liners in rap this year with, “Metro, shut yo hoe ass up and make some drums, nigga.” “Push Ups” surfaced in a fumbled rollout that caused everyone to question the validity of a low-quality leak that sounded like it could have been AI, but the song itself is very strong and was a great counterpunch.

4. Drake, “Family Matters”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “Kendrick just opened his mouth, someone go hand him a Grammy right now”

Despite being snuffed out by the shock value of “Meet the Grahams,” “Family Matters” is a good diss song because of its range in sound and the different flows Drake exhibits. In reality, it would have probably served him better to split the track into two separate songs so he could focus solely on Kendrick (ASAP Rocky probably gets the most creative disses). But Drake still manages to lob some decent jabs and heavy accusations Kendrick’s way—the main one being that the Compton rapper has been physically violent toward his fiancée, Whitney Alford, and that his creative partner Dave Free fathered one of his children. The song is well put together, and has a layered music video that features Drake crushing the same model Mini-van that was featured on the cover of good kid, m.A.A.d city. Drake still held his own yet again despite having to shoot at half the rap game.

3. Kendrick Lamar, “Euphoria”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “I even hate when you say the word ‘nigga,’ but that's just me, I guess/ Some shit just cringeworthy, it ain't even gotta be deep, I guess”

The best diss tracks pick apart opponents in unique ways that will haunt them. But they only withstand the test of time if they have one secret ingredient—pure hater energy. And Kendrick harnesses that on “Euphoria.” Not only is the track filled with easter eggs—like Dot reversing Richard Pryor’s dialogue from The Wiz when he’s being exposed as a fraud or the title being named after the sexualized high school drama Euphoria, which Drake executive produces—it also meticulously picks apart The Boy's massive persona. Kendrick takes jabs at everything from Drake’s relationship with his Blackness to various ghostwriter allegations. And “Euphoria” doesn’t rely on salacious information to get at the rapper, but leans fully into the fact that Kendrick just doesn’t like the guy. Sometimes it pays to be “the biggest hater.”

2. Future & Metro Boomin f/ Kendrick Lamar, “Like That”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “Motherfuck the Big 3, nigga/ It’s just big me”

Kendrick managed to trigger an entire rap war off his first hand, and it’s still one of his best cards drawn. With one explosive verse, Kendrick finally put an end to all of the pump-faking he and Drake had been engaging in since he last pushed the red button on “Control” more than a decade ago. 

What’s most impressive about “Like That,” though, is how effective Kendrick is in so few bars. He wastes no time refuting the Big three label, shits on Drake’s affinity for Michael Jackson with a clever bar about Prince, and makes it clear that he wants all the smoke. Metro Boomin, finding a way to say “fuck you” to Drake through the production, also helps make the case for “Like That,” a song that sat at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart for three weeks. Drake has long been praised for his ability to diss rivals on hit songs that they have to hear in the club, so you know he was seething after someone did it to him.

1. Kendrick Lamar, “Not Like Us”

drake the tour

Most memorable line: “Tryna strike a chord and it's probably A-minor”

Dot might have won this battle with this track because he beat Drake at his own game; he linked up with DJ Mustard and made a club-friendly diss track where he still took haymakers at his opponent. The song became inescapable less than 48 hours after its release, with clubs and even NBA on TNT playing the track. OVO stans like Akademiks had to yield to its electricity, and even Drake himself admitted that he would have liked dancing to the song if it didn’t have such serious allegations attached to it. 

The lyrics that Kendrick has crowds screaming are very questionable (“Certified Lover Boy, Certified pedophiles”?) but “Not Like Us’” has a contagious hook and West Coast bounce that make it too good to only play once. Time will tell if this track marked the end conclusion of the rap war between the two titans, but “Not Like Us” has already proven itself to be the stone that stunned Goliath.

J. Cole and Drake

The Super Bowl is here — not the crew of Travis Kelce, Taylor Swift, and Patrick Mahomes, but the rap Super Bowl consisting of the genre’s biggest heavyweights — Drake and J. Cole — as they kicked off their hotly anticipated It’s All A Blur – Big as the What? Tour Friday night (Feb. 2) at Tampa, Fla.’s Amalia Arena.

Even though Drake and Cole don’t aspire to have gridiron dreams, they certainly electrified like NFL superstars with their signature hits ranging from their Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper “First Person Shooter” to their early collaboration “In the Morning.” The set design was a turf-style football field with a colossal statue of fallen fashion designer Virgil Abloh parked at the end zone. 

The redux version of Drake’s It’s All A Blur Tour had extra bells and whistles versus the previous effort, including newer songs, most notably from Drake’s  For All The Dogs  albums and classic B-side records that he didn’t perform the last time. Drake also enlisted sports personality and ESPN  First Take  host Stephen A. Smith on commentary to kick off the show. Smith provided a colorful analysis of Drizzy and Cole as if they were perennial all-stars on the brink of falling off. 

Fortunately, Drake and Cole proved why they’re immune to any possible slippage, as demonstrated by their Herculean performance, which consisted of over 40 songs. 

Check out the setlist for Drake and Cole’s It’s All A Blur — Big as the What Tour, based on the opening night show at Tampa’s Amalie Arena.

"Virginia Beach"

"marvin’s room", "teenage fever", "feel no ways", "headlines", "the motto", "started from the bottom", "know yourself", "sicko mode", "laugh now, cry later", "god’s plan", "child's play", "in my feelings", "nice for what", "calling for you", "rich baby daddy", "search & rescue", "controlla", "find your love", "hold on we're going home", "passionfruit", "one dance", "middle child", "wet dreamz", "a tale of two cities", "power trip", "the london", "love yourz", "the secret recipe (acapella)", "no role modelz", "in the morning", "first person shooter", "p---y & millions", "knife talk", "rich flex", "you broke my heart", "slime you out", "trophies (band)".

Trevor Noah weighs in on Kendrick vs. Drake, swerves a fan's gift at Hollywood Bowl show

drake the tour

LOS ANGELES − Former " Daily Show " host Trevor Noah wasn't afraid to get political during his Hollywood Bowl stand-up set Saturday night.

And we're not talking about the upcoming presidential election, which he was also asked about during an audience Q&A segment that capped off his nearly two-hour show. No, he waded into more controversial waters: Is he Team Kendrick Lamar or Team Drake ?

After pretending to close the show in an effort avoid such a heated topic, Noah fearlessly planted his flag in Team Kendrick while expertly remaining diplomatic.

"In general, I love both. You can't force me to not love both. I don't live in a binary world; I love Drake's music, I love Kendrick's music," he told crowd.

"In this beef in particular, I think as an amateur fan of hip-hop, not as an expert" − he pauses to warn someone to put their phone away, though devices were not prohibited at the show − "I think in this instance, in my humble opinion, Kendrick won because first of all, he layered it."

His answer earned a healthy amount of applause from the LA crowd.

Noah explained, "Drake had some great rhymes. They were fantastic, but they were like, direct, you know? Kendrick was (doing) like, double, triple, quadruple entendre. And if you didn't get it, he was just like, 'I hate how you walk. I hate how you talk.' And I was like, 'Wow, what an effective way of communication.'

"And then he also made them bops as well! It's hard to lose a rap beef when it's that catchy," he added. Earlier in the day, "I didn't even know I was doing it, like, ' They not like us. They not like us .' Then you've won. When people are singing your demise for fun, I think you've lost the rap beef. So: Kendrick."

Saturday night marked the end of the North American leg of Noah's Off the Record tour (and the penultimate night for the nearly two-week long Netflix Is a Joke Fest ), which might have explained his willingness to throw caution to the wind by taking sides.

As the South African comedian said, he "can't be fired now" that he's done performing in the U.S.

Trevor Noah calls out LA drivers for cutting him off in Hollywood Bowl traffic

Otherwise, Noah stuck to less divisive topics during his set, which started with subjects you simply can't go wrong with when speaking with an LA crowd: weather and traffic.

After an opening set by his longtime friend Wil Sylvince , the visiting New Yorker chastised audience members as he pointed out the passive aggressive way LA drivers don't make eye contact as they screw over fellow drivers.

"I'm trying to come to the show with you!" he said. "People were cutting me off in the traffic."

He discussed his recent travels and bemoaned universally accepted annoyances, like being put on standby on a flight because of an airline's own mistakes. Noah admitted there's a part of his brain that makes him see the humor in the most inappropriate circumstances − and even if it's too soon to find something funny.

"I don’t find everything funny, but I find the funny in everything," Noah said.

Jerry Seinfeld's set: Comedy icon gives the keys to 24-year marriage

Such an instance was when news broke about the missing submersible (the one with five men inside headed to explore the Titanic wreckage but who died when the Titan imploded). The comedian's first thought: "We know there were no Black people involved in this story."

Whether it's a skiing accident, a camping trip gone wrong, a hot air balloon accident, "there were no Black people involved," Noah joked.

"I think Black people inherently live a life that is fraught with danger," he said, later adding, "Anyone who has Africa in their blood, their DNA, you won't seek out unnecessary danger. You can't. That, my friends, is the purview of white men. That is what white men are destined to do. And white men, I'm not shaming you. I'm encouraging you: You keep going, baby."

Trevor Noah evokes Dave Chappelle incident, graciously swerves a gift from a fan

As he segued into the second half of his set with a sip from a water bottle, Noah was interrupted by someone in the crowd who had a birthday card they wanted to share with Noah, who turned 40 in February.

"She's touching me! It's Dave Chappelle all over again!" he joked as the audience member approached the security-lined stage.

In 2022, during the inaugural Netflix Is a Joke Fest at Hollywood Bowl, a man in the crowd assaulted Chappelle onstage and was later sentenced to prison time.

"I just wanted to see how quick they were. Clearly I'd be dead," Noah said. "Just say it's a birthday card, (and) a person can make it all the way to the stage."

He immediately flung the gift to the side to the stage.

"I'll make sure to take it, but I'm not going to hold it. I like you, but I don't trust you," he told the fan.

"I hope you understand, from my perspective, if I just took every gift people gave me, they're like, 'It's for you!' I'd be like, 'Yeah, pffff,' " he said, making an impression of an explosion. "White comedian, I'd be like, 'Thank you, let's see what it is!' No Black people involved. None."

After a security guard was shot at Drake’s Toronto residence earlier this week and an intruder was arrested the next day , police returned to the rapper’s home on Thursday afternoon (May 9) after a trespasser got into an “altercation” with security guards.

This marks the third incident involving police at Drake ’s home this week. Early on Tuesday morning, a security guard was shot in a drive-by incident and was transported to the hospital with serious injuries. A day later, an intruder was arrested for attempting to break into the home, and was apprehended by police under the Ontario Mental Health Act.

Popular on Variety

The events at Drake’s home come after a heated weekend of diss tracks between him and Kendrick Lamar . The two have been sparring since Lamar dropped a verse in March on Future and Metro Boomin’s “Like That,” which set off a ripple of diss songs and videos. After the security guard shooting early Tuesday morning, police said that it was too early to know if the event was connected to the beef between the rappers.

It’s worth noting that Lamar featured an aerial image of Drake’s home on the cover of “Not Like Us,” a diss track that he dropped last Saturday. Fans and critics have become concerned that the back-and-forth could have real-life consequences, citing the battle between the Notorious B.I.G. and Tupac Shakur.

Savvino-storozhevsky monastery and museum.

Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery and Museum

Zvenigorod's most famous sight is the Savvino-Storozhevsky Monastery, which was founded in 1398 by the monk Savva from the Troitse-Sergieva Lavra, at the invitation and with the support of Prince Yury Dmitrievich of Zvenigorod. Savva was later canonised as St Sabbas (Savva) of Storozhev. The monastery late flourished under the reign of Tsar Alexis, who chose the monastery as his family church and often went on pilgrimage there and made lots of donations to it. Most of the monastery’s buildings date from this time. The monastery is heavily fortified with thick walls and six towers, the most impressive of which is the Krasny Tower which also serves as the eastern entrance. The monastery was closed in 1918 and only reopened in 1995. In 1998 Patriarch Alexius II took part in a service to return the relics of St Sabbas to the monastery. Today the monastery has the status of a stauropegic monastery, which is second in status to a lavra. In addition to being a working monastery, it also holds the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum.

Belfry and Neighbouring Churches

drake the tour

Located near the main entrance is the monastery's belfry which is perhaps the calling card of the monastery due to its uniqueness. It was built in the 1650s and the St Sergius of Radonezh’s Church was opened on the middle tier in the mid-17th century, although it was originally dedicated to the Trinity. The belfry's 35-tonne Great Bladgovestny Bell fell in 1941 and was only restored and returned in 2003. Attached to the belfry is a large refectory and the Transfiguration Church, both of which were built on the orders of Tsar Alexis in the 1650s.

To the left of the belfry is another, smaller, refectory which is attached to the Trinity Gate-Church, which was also constructed in the 1650s on the orders of Tsar Alexis who made it his own family church. The church is elaborately decorated with colourful trims and underneath the archway is a beautiful 19th century fresco.

Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is the oldest building in the monastery and among the oldest buildings in the Moscow Region. It was built between 1404 and 1405 during the lifetime of St Sabbas and using the funds of Prince Yury of Zvenigorod. The white-stone cathedral is a standard four-pillar design with a single golden dome. After the death of St Sabbas he was interred in the cathedral and a new altar dedicated to him was added.

Under the reign of Tsar Alexis the cathedral was decorated with frescoes by Stepan Ryazanets, some of which remain today. Tsar Alexis also presented the cathedral with a five-tier iconostasis, the top row of icons have been preserved.

Tsaritsa's Chambers

The Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral is located between the Tsaritsa's Chambers of the left and the Palace of Tsar Alexis on the right. The Tsaritsa's Chambers were built in the mid-17th century for the wife of Tsar Alexey - Tsaritsa Maria Ilinichna Miloskavskaya. The design of the building is influenced by the ancient Russian architectural style. Is prettier than the Tsar's chambers opposite, being red in colour with elaborately decorated window frames and entrance.

At present the Tsaritsa's Chambers houses the Zvenigorod Historical, Architectural and Art Museum. Among its displays is an accurate recreation of the interior of a noble lady's chambers including furniture, decorations and a decorated tiled oven, and an exhibition on the history of Zvenigorod and the monastery.

Palace of Tsar Alexis

The Palace of Tsar Alexis was built in the 1650s and is now one of the best surviving examples of non-religious architecture of that era. It was built especially for Tsar Alexis who often visited the monastery on religious pilgrimages. Its most striking feature is its pretty row of nine chimney spouts which resemble towers.
