James Blake On XXL.comAugust 13, 2013
James Blake Plays OVO Fest, Finds His Place In Hip-Hop - not the headline you’d expect, but in fact Drake and James Blake are not-so-different artists who find ways to meet in the middle with their music, according to XXL magazine.
Blake was initially scheduled to perform during the first day of the festival, alongside an equally-alternative Frank Ocean, but after Ocean sustained a vocal injury, Blake was left alone as the only non-hip-hop artist on the bill. Even with Drake cutting his hometown party down to one day from two, he still wanted Blake to perform, so much so that he squeezed Blake’s set in at the last minute.
