Since the Soul'd Out Festival announced its fantastic 2017 lineup, Portland has been eagerly anticipating the arrival of an electro-hip-hop match made in heaven, Travi$ Scott and Flying Lotus—Flying Lotus has since dropped off the bill, but Scott will perform tonight at the Memorial Coliseum. If you have a ticket, prepare to get even more excited, but if you don't (I don't), prepare to be even more disappointed (I am): Drake might be there.
According to some tweets from Portland DJ Leigh Feldman, Drake has been chilling on the Portland Nike campus today, riding around on a segway and likely doing other cool shit. If this is true, we'd say it's pretty likely that he'll be making an appearance at tonight's show.
Let's look at the facts:
1. Earlier today Feldman also tweeted that Drake will the special guest at tonight's show.
2. Drake and Scott have a song with Quavo called "Portland" (which features the kind of funny but definitely misogynist lyric "Out in Portland, tryna get in her organs").
3. Ibeth Hernandez of Chapters Alumni also dropped some hints on Twitter.
Until we get photographic evidence of the aforementioned segway ride, the question remains—is Drake performing in Portland tonight? Only time will tell.
