Drake has always been enraptured by his hometown team the Raptors. You don’t need Rap Genius to dissect his lyrics to see his constant admiration with his team from the 6. Ever since he was named the ambassador for the team, he has helped change the team’s swagger, jerseys, and is always on the sidelines at home-games.

I mean, Hovito brought the Nets over from Jersey to Brooklyn. So, that shows his love for his city in more ways than one. Jay is always at the Barclays Center sitting courtside to root for the Nets, even though their play has been horrendous this season.
