Drake seriously knows how to throw a festival. First, he gets Outkast to headline the first night of the two-day fest, celebrating its fifth year. And then he takes the stage for the closing night. But, he didn’t take that stage alone, no way, he managed to wrangle up a few of his musician friends — 10 to be exact — for the 40-song set. He even got his dear ol’ mom to come out and make an appearance.

The night started off with Lauryn Hill helping Drake out with his “Draft Day,” which samples her song “Doo Wop (That Thing).”  She managed to show up on time for this one and not yell at the crowd.

Later, he brought out Trey Songz for two songs (“Successful” and “Oh Na Na!”) before bringing him back to help out with 50 Cent’s song “Smoke.” 50 Cent had his G-Unit boys help out on that track, along with “I Get Money” and “In Da Club.”

J. Cole performed his two tracks “Can’t Get Enough” off his 2011 debut, Cole World: The Sideline Story  and “Power Trip” off his 2013 album, Born Sinner. Drake even shouted out Kendrick Lamar during his portion in honor of all the young guys coming up.

Drake also had a little fun with himself during “All Me,” running a clip of him lint rolling himself at the Toronto Raptors game.

His OVO signees PARTYNEXTDOOR came out for a run of songs, including “Recognize,” which features Drake. DJ Khaled followed up with a set of three tracks that included “No New Friends” and “All I Do Is Win,” which would only have been better if Emma Stone came out to lipsynch it.

New singer, Tinashe came out to do her song “2 On,” while YG walked out to perform his track “Who Do You Love?” which features a verse from Drizzy himself.

It was Usher though who got the star treatment, performing six songs including old favorites like “Climax” and “Confessions Pt. 1 and 2,” along with his latest track “Good Kisser.”

But the best guest might have been Drake’s mom, who came out in a wheelchair to applause from the crowd and a little love from her son. How cute.

Drake even ended his set by letting everyone in Toronto know after he was done touring with Lil Wayne he was coming back to his hometown to start making his new album.

Check out the full 40-song setlist below. And get ready to see Drake take on his mentor Lil Wayne when their Vs. Tour kicks off this Friday (Aug. 8) in Darien Lake, NY.
