The Young Money Reunion show rocked the 6ix this weekend as Drake, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj reunited on stage.

The OVO Fest event was pushed back due to Drake testing positive for COVID-19, and while there was some pushback from fans on the new rescheduled date, it seems the show was worth the wait with so many iconic moments.

Here are six unforgettable moments from the Saturday, August 6, concert at Budweiser Stage.

Drake showed Lil Wayne some gratitude and reminisced on how the rapper helped him in his early days.

"He gave me $30,000 that I was able to bring home to my mother, and that changed like the next six months for us," said Drake in a video posted to TikTok.

"I'll never forget, that's the most important amount of money I've ever made in my life to date. You're the most important man for each and every one of us. You are truly the most selfless man on planet earth to find all these people from across the mother-f**king world, bring us all together, and give us all a shot."

Drake continued, saying he would "do anything" for the rapper.

"I'd lay anybody down for you. I love you. I would go to the ends of the earth for this man."
