Earlier today it was announced that Rihanna is going to be the focus of a new Peter Berg documentary. Additionally, noted Rihanna ex-boyfriend Drake is also getting a documentary of his own, out March 19th for one night only. Called Drake's Homecoming: The Lost Footage, the concert doc is on the horizon -- but the circumstances around it are still mysterious at best. It really doesn't seem like anyone is even talking about this documentary, which is weird considering that everything Drake does usually devastates the internet (and this writer/avid Drake enthusiast, personally). So far, the internet has remained eerily quiet on this one.
The upcoming film is being produced by Drake associates J. Prince and Jas Prince and it features supposedly "lost" concert footage. "This live sold out concert filmed at Toronto's Sound Academy in 2009 just prior to Drake signing with Lil Wayne's Young Money was believed lost and destroyed," a description of the trailer on YouTube announces. In addition to the concert, it also features talking-head interviews from various industry people. Drake, however, doesn't appear outside of the concert footage nor has he been promoting this documentary at all. The trailer first premiered back in February and Drake has never mentioned on social media or otherwise.
It would seem as if this is all happening without Drake's #blessing, but seeing Drake perform his first sold-out show back when he was "the old Drake" will be entertaining nonetheless. At one point in the trailer Jas Prince, who introduced Drake to Lil Wayne, explains that Wayne wasn't even feeling Drake when he first heard him. According to Prince, Wayne's exact words were, "Jas, don't play me that shit no more. It's no good." So, if that's any indication, the documentary should be fun for diehard Drizzy fans. Watch the trailer, above, and get tickets here, if you feel so inclined. Or just watch Jungle on a loop for 2-hours. Basically the same thing, right?
