c'mon, Drake, you probably got about 47 uncles. People die, thats a fact of life! Get on the stage. In 2 years, we wont even remember your name. Your dead uncle would have understood.

You losers obviously don't know anything about the music industry. Drake is one of the most famous rap/hip-hop artists out there right now. Google, Billboard anyone?

After paying everyone out, and ten people showing up to the concert, Drake would probably lose money if he played. Bono would lose millions if he canceled. That's the difference.
