Seems like Drake ruffled some feathers while attending the Cleveland Cavaliers vs. Toronto Raptors game Tuesday (May 1). According to reports, the rapper, who is a team ambassador for the Raptors, and former Cavaliers player Kendrick Perkins exchanged heated words… twice.
Both Drake and Perkins told their side of the story, but the two tales are quite different.
Falling on Beat
Just last week (April 26), the Toronto native shared behind-the-scenes clips from the “Nice For What” music video, showing himself smoothly gliding on skates before hitting the floor. The video, which Drake posted late April, had over five million views within the first few hours of it being posted.
Captioned “Director’s Cut” with a crying emoji, the short clip shows Drake skating in a blue puffer jacket before slipping on what looks like a wet floor. “Nice For What” is heard playing in the background, giving fans a glimpse of the track’s unreleased video footage.
“You need skating lessons from weezy,” a fan joked on Instagram. “I shouldn’t be laughing so hard, but Gooodddd daaaammmmnnn!!” added another.
If the rumors have any truth to them, Champagne Papi isn’t only falling physically but emotionally as well. According to reports, 6 God Drizzy Drake has a girlfriend.
The Sun says the “God’s Plan” rapper caught feelings for English singer Raye — the first person he’s publicaly dated since Jennifer Lopez — after “some late-night studio sessions.” “And the Canadian has been wining and dining her in one of London’s swankiest restaurants,” the outlet alleges.
The Sun‘s source revealed that Raye “is a massive fan of Drake’s work,” which led her to send him some of her music on Twitter. “He was clearly impressed by her songwriting talents and when they met to record, it quickly became obvious it wasn’t just her music he was interested in,” the insider continued.
