Drake is back outside with 21 Savage for the first time since they ended their tour run together.

On Monday, May 27, the Atlanta-based rapper wrapped up his two-night run at the Budweiser Stage in Toronto for his "American Dream Tour." The Slaughterhouse Gang leader delivered a slew of hits from his latest album American Dream and other popular tracks. He even brought out Nardo Wick to perform their collaboration "Who Want Smoke (Remix)." Toward the end of the show, 21 brought his boy Drizzy out to perform their hit collaborations "Knife Talk" and "Rich Flex."

It's the first time the duo have performed together since they wrapped up the first leg of the "It's All A Blur Tour" last year. 21 Savage traveled the U.S. with the OVO Sound founder and performed numerous tracks off their joint album Her Loss. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to join Drake during his shows in Canada due to his immigration status.

The UK-born artist had been under investigation after he was arrested by the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) in 2019 due to an expired nonimmigrant visa. The battle over his immigration lasted four years due to complications from the pandemic and other legal headaches. 21 finally got his green card in 2023, which allowed him to travel outside the U.S. for the first time in years.

Drake confirmed 21's immigration status in his freestyle "8AM in Charlotte." However, the "X" rapper was still denied entry at the Canadian border on the first night of the tour's two-night finale in Drizzy's hometown. Thankfully, 21 finally made it to the Scotiabank Arena for the final night of the tour.

This was also the first time the duo performed together following Drizzy's high-profile beef with Metro Boomin and Kendrick Lamar. 21 declined to participate in the antics surrounding their beef up until a couple weeks ago when he finally broke his silence on the feud. During an Instagram Live session, 21 said he was cool with both Metro and Drake. However, 21 recently booted Metro out of his Instagram Live and blocked him after he called 21 "OVO Savage" in the comments.

“Metro, shut your hoe ass up and make some drums, n***a,” 21 told Metro.
