Ye surprised the crowd during Game‘s Drillmatic album release show on The Novo on Friday night, July 8. Wearing a black mask on his face and a hoodie with a bomber jacket, Ye took to the stage to perform his “Eazy” collaboration for the first time since Ye’s “Donda Experience” movie in Miami in February.
The game also showed its gratitude to Ye for his support. “It’s my first time performing with my brother,” he said. “He doesn’t come to sing any songs. He was clear about it. He came for his brother.”

“This ni**a’s friendship, it don’t waiver,” he continued. “No matter what I do to this ni**a or what I say about this ni**a, he just love me. It’s like this ni**a Yeezus or something.”
On Instagram, he also reflected on their friendship. “From freestyling outside the Nike store against one another 20 years ago with little to no money in our pockets to sharing yet another grand stage together last night,” he wrote. “Thank you for always being a true friend in & outside of music @kanyewest…… last night was classic. #Drillmatic on the way.”
Following Ye, Game brought out another GOAT, Lil Wayne, to perform their 2008 collaboration “My Life.” Weezy also stuck around for his own “A Milli.”

The Game Says It Did What It Says
Game’s new album Drillmatic was supposed to drop Friday, but it has been delayed. In addition to Ye and Wayne, the project is expected to feature NBA YoungBoy and G Herbo, plus a collaboration with Chris Brown and Chlöe Bailey that samples Janet Jackson.
Game recently revealed that JAY-Z gave his blessing by clearing seven samples for the album, but he still needs to clear three more samples before he can release it.
