It was Drake Night on Friday while the Raptors had a 58-43 lead on the Rockets and the rapper took the opportunity to address the crowd during halftime. While praising his home team, Drake promised that he is working on his new album, dedicated to the city of Toronto.
The rapper, who’s the team’s global ambassador, addressed the crowd by shouting out the Raptors for being No. 1 in the East and thanking fans for attending the game. “I love each and every one of you,” said Drake. “I’m happy to be home. I’m working on this new album for the city.” Watch the video below.
