Drake‘s scheduled performance at the historic Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, has been pushed back as the hip-hop community continues to mourn the loss of Migos rapper Takeoff.

“The Apollo show has been moved to allow us to pay respect to our dear friend this weekend,” he wrote in his Instagram Story Monday. Along with the unfortunate news was a more exciting detail: “We have added a second date for the fans,” Drake continued.

As previously reported, Takeoff was shot and killed outside of 810 Billiards & Bowling in downtown Houston last week. In the wake of his death, Drake, who collaborated and toured with the late rapper and his group Migos, paid tribute to his friend on Instagram.

“I got the best memories of all of us seeing the world together and bringing light to every city we touch,” he captioned a shot of him and Takeoff onstage. “That’s what I’ll focus on for now. rest easy space man Take.”
