On Instagram, Drake called it “(some) of our most important moments together available in one place.”

This comes just as OVO Fest, which is the annual music festival that Drake hosts, is set to take place this weekend. The rapper is set to perform at Budweiser Stage for the festival on Monday.

On Tuesday, Drake also took to Instagram calling on Pickering mayor David Ryan to “set up some stronger wifi towers” for his producer, Boi-1da, a Pickering resident. The City of Pickering says Ryan will have a meeting with Boi-1da at his studio to discuss the issue.
