“Drake Night” still surreal for Toronto rapper.

The Toronto native and international pop star introduced the Raptors starters on “Drake Night.” Fans were also treated to special edition t-shirts and a chance to recreate Drake’s “Hotline Bling” video. TORONTO – It’s been three years since the first annual instalment of “Drake Night” at Air Canada Centre, but the Canadian rapper behind the event still can’t believe it’s happening. “This is surreal,” Toronto-born Drake said prior to the Raptors’ 103-99 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night. “Even though it’s my name it’s something we always do for the city. Yes it’s named after me but it’s definitely dedicated to the city of Toronto.” Fans at the game were given free black and gold Drake-inspired t-shirts and headbands, which the rapper and his clothing line/record label OVO designed.

He even helped design the Raptors’ alternate gold and black jersey, new this season, which he unveiled at his OVO Fest concert in Toronto over the summer. As long as we have wonderful guys like Masai (Ujiri, the Raptors general manager) here, I’m sure the partnership will grow and blossom.” Drake, who was at Staples Centre last week to watch the Raptors easily beat the lowly Lakers, said he wasn’t too concerned with the stiffer competition for Wednesday’s game. “LeBron’s like my brother,” Drake said. “He’s one of my closest friends in the world. Right now, it’s a Raptors thing.” One of many Canadians to dominate the Billboard charts recently — his latest single “Hotline Bling” is currently No. 3 on the Top 100 behind Adele’s “Hello” and Stratford, Ont., native Justin Bieber’s “Sorry” — Drake said he was thrilled to be able to watch a number of Canadians thriving in the NBA as well.
