drake raptors performance

Last night, Drake celebrated the release of his latest album Views (but, unfortunately, not a Raptors win) with a free halftime performance at Toronto’s Maple Leaf Square, aka Jurassic Park, a popular spot for the city’s basketball fans outside the Air Canada Centre. Although Drizzy couldn’t be at the game, which was being played in Indiana, to cheer on his team (and clap furiously at Rodney Stuckey’s head), he did surprise the gathering Raptors fans with a quick performance of his IYRTITL hit, “Energy.”

“I love everybody in this city. I love this city. I’ll die for this city. This the greatest place in the world with the greatest people in the world,” he addressed the crowd, who responded in kind by chanting “Drake, Drake, Drake.” Now, let’s see if the stars align for Drake and the Raptors in a crucial game seven in Toronto on Sunday night.
