Travi$ Scott’s Birds Eye View tour landed in Portland (his “fav place in America to find peace”) last night, so it was only right he brought out Drake to perform their More Life collaboration “Portland.” That wasn’t Drake’s only cameo, though — he also jumped into the crowd and moshed with fans towards the end of Travi$’s set. In the footage below, you can see Aubrey turning up to “Antidote” and “Goosebumps” while trying his best not to be swallowed whole by a sea of sweaty fans and smartphones.
