This epic moment follows news of there being a rumored Em diss track aimed at the Toronto emcee after statements made by Hot 97‘s Ebro Darden about a conversation he had with Drizzy at OVO Fest. This turned out to be false as Darden later clarified that his comments were made in jest.

The Detroit spitter made his entrance during Drake’s performance of “Forever” just his in time for him to spit his killer verse on the monster smash. Drake further dispelled the rumors of bad blood between the two by paying his respects.

“Make some noise for the greatest rapper to ever get on a motherf–king microphone. He goes by the name of Eminem—legendary s–t tonight.”

The feeling was mutual for Eminem who made sure his city showed Drizzy the adoration he deserves.

“It’s an honor to share the stage with this man right here. Detroit one more time, make Drake feel the love.”

It was a LEGENDARY NIGHT indeed. Check out footage of Drake and Em uniting on stage below.
