Things picked up again for Mr. Aubrey Graham, by dropping another banger just in time for the sun to finally come out in Toronto. But the track also just happens to coincide with Toronto’s Next Big thing Andrew Wiggins officially declaring for the NBA Draft. On the track properly titled “Draft Day”, Drake shows love to both Wiggins and NCAA Football GOD Johnny “Money” Manziel, while also perfectly using a DOPE ASS LAURYN HILL SAMPLE. Can we all agree that some how, some way, the game needs L-Boogie back in major way. I mean I always forget how damn soulful sounding she is.
Anyways for your listening pleasure… Draft Day:
“Just hits, no misses (Mrs.) that’s for the married folk”…Wow that’s no doubt a shot a Jay and Kanye right? We’ll save that discussion for another day….
BUT it’s been a big week for Drake as it was announced that he will be the host of the ESPY Awards (ESPN’s sports version of the Grammys and Oscars). As part of his promotional tour, Drake was featured on ESPN’s NBA Countdown, which led to not one but two full segments on our Toronto Raptors (PLAYOFFS SON!!!). Side note, remember when the crusty old ass Toronto Sports media types were questioning the purpose of having Drake be associated with the Raptors…naw me either. But here’s a small taste of his appearance on the 4-letter down south.
But by far the best thing to come out of Drake’s promo tour was his appearance on Jimmy Kimmel. One of the best bits in Late Night TV is “Lie Witness News”, but for this edition Drizzy plays Mr. Dress up and hits the streets to ask people what they really think about this Canadian Rapper named Drake….and of course the results are AMAZING. Enjoy “I Witness News: Fake Drake
Say whatever you want but Drake continues to do it BIG. And oh yeah Jennifer Lawrence can really get it…. WALLAHI
As always just my thoughts, just how I’m feeling at the time. #OnBlast
