Drake suggests new career in sport after commentating on Toronto Raptors game – watch

"Rap's not all it's cracked up to be. Don't let it fool you," he says during NBA game

Drake turned his hand to commentary this weekend during a Toronto Raptors game.

Just hours after Drake revealed new single ‘Summer Sixteen’, the rapper joined Leo Rautins and Matt Devlin as he commentated on the Raptors game against Detroit Pistons.

“It’s funny when you put this headset on basketball lingo just starts flowing,” Drake, who is the basketball team’s Global Ambassador, said. “I’m telling you I can get used to this man. Rap’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Don’t let it fool you.”


He also referenced lyrics from ‘Summer Sixteen’ as he gave Raptors player Bismack Biyombo a new nickname. “Bis out here looking for revenge,” Drake said. “Big Bis-ness out here. That’s a new nickname.”

In addition to revealing a new single on Saturday, Drake also told listeners to his Beats 1 show OVO Sound that long-awaited new album ‘Views From The 6’ will be relased in April.

The news comes just days after Rihanna dropped her new single ‘Work’, which features Drake. The Bajan singer released her long-awaited album ‘Anti’ the following day.
