The Hotline Bling hitmaker took a brief break from his Summer Sixteen tour while in the U.S. capital to meet the Oscar-winning actor, who plays President Frank Underwood on hit Netflix series House of Cards.

Drake posted a black and white photo of the unlikely pals on Instagram on Saturday (20Aug16), along with the caption, "SUMMER SIXTEEN TOUR IN DC WITH THE PREZ (sic)."

It appeared the snap was taken on the set of the hit political drama series, which will return for a fifth season next year (17).

While continuing with his tour, Drake found the time to fuel his feud with Nicki Minaj's boyfriend Meek Mill, as he made a number of digs at his fellow rapper during a gig in the rap rival's native Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Sunday (21Aug16).

Changing the lyrics to one of his tracks, he rapped, "Man you not really from Philly and they can tell."

One well-known hip-hop star has come out in support of Meek amid his row with Drake over ghostwriting claims. Andre 3000 seemingly referenced the fall-out as he dropped a verse on Frank Ocean's new album Blonde.

On one of the tracks, the Outkast hitmaker raps, "After 20 years in/I’m so naive I was under the impression that everyone wrote they own verses/It’s comin’ back different and yea that s**t hurts me/I’m hummin’ and whistlin’ to those not deserving/I’m stumbled and lift every word, was I working just way too hard?"

Fans on Twitter were quick to point out the line about stumbling and lifting every word was clearly aimed at Drake, who Meek alleged did not write his own raps, instead using a ghostwriter on several of his tracks.
