Drake Cancels Toronto Film Festival Appearance Due To Tour Scheduling Conflict

If you’re in Toronto and had plans to attend the Canadian premiere of Monsters and Men with high hopes of seeing Drake present the film since he’s credited as executive producer, then we’re here with not the best news since Drizzy had to, unfortunately, drop out. 

Monsters and Men is a project very close to Drake’s heart but due to scheduling commitments on his current tour he unfortunately will not be unable to attend,” a statement read,  The Toronto Star. “He wishes the film the utmost success and feels strongly about its ability to positively inspire dialogue.”

The film is a drama about police violence that follows a Brooklyn community turned upside down after the shooting of a Black man by an officer. The project has already been successfully recognized since winning a special jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. Drake linked with filmmakers in a partnership to bring more attention to the film using his popularity.
