It has recently been announced that the 29-year-old “Hotline Bling” rapper is set to be honored by Toronto Mayor John Tory with a Key to the City this weekend at a NBA All-Star game – Drake is a global Raptors basketball ambassador.
“Drake is Toronto’s biggest champion: in his music, his mentorship of local talent, and his presence on the world stage,” John said at a press conference. “He makes people feel good about themselves and their city, and he has drawn the eyes of the world to Toronto. He deserves our city’s recognition and our pride and I’m honoured to give him the Key to the City.”
