Drake hangs out with Kevin Spacey during tour stop

Published 22/08/2016


Drake and Kevin Spacey have begun what looks like a budding bromance as the pair posed for a selfie while the rapper was in Washington D.C.

Drake met up with Kevin Spacey while making a stop in Washington D.C. as part of his current tour.

The Hotline Bling hitmaker took a brief break from his Summer Sixteen tour while in the U.S. capital to meet the Oscar-winning actor, who plays President Frank Underwood on the Netflix series House of Cards.

Drake posted a black and white photo on Instagram of him with Spacey on Saturday (20Aug16), along with the caption, "SUMMER SIXTEEN TOUR IN DC WITH THE PREZ (sic)."

The snap looks like it was taken on the set of the hit political drama series, which will return with its fifth season next year (17).

While continuing with his tour, Drake found the time to fuel the fire of his feud with Meek Mill, as he made a number of digs at his fellow rapper during a gig in Meek's home town of Philadelphia on Sunday (21Aug16).

Changing the lyrics to one of his tracks, he rapped, "Man you not really from Philly and they can tell."

However, one well-known hip-hop star has come out in support of Meek amid his row with Drake over ghost-writing claims. Andre 3000 seemingly referenced the fall-out as he dropped a verse on Frank Ocean's new album Blonde.

One on of the tracks, the Outkast hitmaker raps, "After 20 years in / I’m so naive I was under the im-pression that everyone wrote they own verses / It’s comin’ back different and yea that s**t hurts me / I’m hummin’ and whistlin’ to those not deserving / I’m stumbled and lift every word, was I working just way too hard?"

Fans on Twitter were quick to point out the line about stumbling and lifting every word is aimed at Drake, who Meek alleged did not write his own raps, instead using a ghostwriter on several of his tracks.
