Drake talks Toronto-inspired new album while attending hometown basketball game

The rapper is global ambassador for the Raptors team

Drake has teased his Toronto-inspired new album while supporting his home basketball team. Check out the clip below.

The Canadian rapper’s last studio album came in the form of ‘Views’ in 2016, followed by his ‘More Life’ playlist and standalone single ‘Signs’. Earlier this year, he dropped ’Scary Hours’ – featuring tracks ‘God’s Plan’ and ‘Diplomatic Immunity’.

Last night, Champagne Papi took to the court at the Toronto Raptors vs Houston Rockets game – where he showed admiration for his hometown and shed some light on his new LP.


“I love each and every one of you,” said Drake at halftime. “I’m happy to be home. I’m working on this new album for the city.” 

The ‘Hotline Bling’ star – who’s global ambassador for the Raptors – went on to taunt his rival team, claiming that their “win streak is over”.

The artist previously moonlighted as a TV sports reporter at a Raptors game.

In other Drake news, the rapper was recently named fourth wealthiest hip-hop artist of 2018 on Forbes’ annual list. His net worth is said to be $100 million (£73 million) – matching the wealth of Eminem. Drake was also named by the IFPI as the second best-selling global artist for 2017.

Elsewhere, a hilarious parody of his ‘God’s Plan’ video aired recently on Jimmy Kimmel Live.


In the original video, Drake went to Miami where he gave away nearly $1 million, helping families with their grocery shopping, donating to a women’s shelter, and covering a student’s tuition.

In Kimmel’s version, the show’s Guillermo Rodriguez heads to a 99 cent store where he lets everyone get one thing “for only 99 cents”. At the end, he hands over a giant cheque to a bemused store employee for $96.16.
