Drake Welcomes Toronto Raptors Rookies While Saying Goodbye To Kyle Lowry

Drake loves his Toronto Raptors. The connection

Drake has with his team goes deeper than the

global ambassador position he currently holds.

friendships with current and former players like

Fred VanVleet and Demar DeRozan.

With the NBA off-season going into full effect

with the draft and free agency period, Drake is

welcoming new players and saying goodbye to

even more. On Sunday (August 1), Drake invited

the Raptors’ new rookies Scott Barnes and

Dalano Banton to his Toronto home for a chill

session. The link-up also happened on Barnes’

20th birthday. 


With two new additions comes a departure to the

Raptors team. On Monday (August 2), longtime

Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry was shipped

to the Miami Heat in a sign-and-trade deal.

Lowry was a six-time all-star with the Raptors

and helped the team win an NBA championship

in 2019. Drizzy took to his Instagram Story to

send off Lowry with a pair of images. 


“@kyle_lowry7 the city is yours eternally and we

wish you the best in south beach…,” Drake wrote

alongside a picture of him, Lowry and Derozan

posing for a photoshoot. “We will continue to

celebrate you.”


Before toasting to Lowry’s nine years in Toronto,

Drake took time over the weekend to announce

his next album, Certified Lover Boy was

complete. Drake hopped on SiriusXM’s Sound

42’s Fri Yiy Friday radio show as a special guest

and revealed the news. 



forward to delivering it to you. I hope everybody

He added, “And for the rest of you heathens, I

wanna tell you, ’cause I know you’re listening,

don’t trouble people’s kids, don’t bother people’s

soul. OVO, we aim for that head. We don’t aim to

please. Certified Lover Boy on the way. And

that’s for anyone in the way.” Let’s see if CLB is as

good as Drizzy says.
