Drake Speaks On His Hometown Team, Toronto Raptors

Young Money’s Drake spoke on his commitment to his hometown team the Toronto Raptors and what drove his desire  in becoming a  representative of them as  their global ambassador.

“I was born there, raised there. I grew there. And I just wanted to really support the team. I didn’t necessarily know how it was gonna go. I didn’t know if I would be able to make an impact in sports because sports is way different, you know? You look at sports fans’ reactions to a lot of things. Whether it be me hosting the ESPYs or whether it be–It’s just sports is a different type of appreciation. When people from other genres start coming in. So, I had high hopes for what we could accomplish, but I was just there purely for the city. And the union made sense.” (Grantland)
