If you didn’t catch Monday’s Mainstage show at Bumbershoot, watch this montage to get a taste of what you missed. J. Cole, Drake, and Mary J. Blige tore up the stage, and put on an amazing show for an audience that stuck it out through a little bit of rain.
Thanks to KDCutz for the video. (We forgive them for writing “Bumpershoot,” but would like to make it clear that it’s Bumbershoot - with two b’s.)
Before Drake and Mary J. Blige took the stage together at the Video Music Awards, the Bumbershoot Programming department had already paired these two talented artists for the Festival’s Monday Mainstage show. Check out their collaboration on Drake’s “Fancy,” performed just days after they shared billing here in Seattle.
Drake is such a hot commodity these days, MTV is putting most of their promotion for the 2010 Video Music Awards on his deserving shoulders. Check out this clip of Drake channeling Frank Sinatra with some Young Money flair. Even if you aren’t an avid MTV watcher, his effortless cool in this video will make you want to tune in for his performance alone.
