Drake's long weekend in Toronto as seen on Instagram

While you were lazily enjoying your August long weekend at the cottage or on stay-cation in the city, Drake brought out some of the biggest names in hip hop to his beloved 6ix. And, after three nights of shows, including performances by J.Cole, Big Sean and stand-up comedian Kevin Hart, Drake headlined the grand finale of his sixth annual OVO Fest at the Molson Canadian Amphitheatre last night.

Yes, that's Drake having a laugh with Kanye West and Will Smith. Although Smith didn't perform, Kanye was one of this year's surprise guests. Clearly he's moved on from last week's Pan Am mic mishap. Other special guests included Pharrell, Travis Scott, Future and Skepta.

Norm Kelly was the obvious hole in that guest list. While the Ward 40 councillor didn't exactly grace the Amphitheatre stage, Drake rapped against a backdrop in his likeness. It appeared during "Back to Back," one of the diss tracks Drizzy put out during his ongoing feud with Meek Mill.

Drake performed the entire song over a slideshow of Meek Mill memes. He even wore a Free Meek Mill shirt during rehearsal. Despite reports indicating that the Toronto rapper is releasing yet another diss track ("3 Peat") it might be time to put this tiff to bed.

Here's a round-up of Drake's long weekend as seen on Instagram.
