Rapper and Toronto Raptors super fan Drake, is celebrating his hometown team’s NBA championship in an epic way by releasing two new songs later today (June 14).
The In My Feelings rapper partied until the early hours of Friday morning after his home team, the Raptors, beat the Golden State Warriors to claim their first ever win in the NBA Finals at Jurassic Park in Toronto.
After jumping up and down, chugging champagne — he’s the Champagne Papi after all — and hugging everyone around him after the game ended, the rapper announced he’s dropping new music Friday — or as he called it, a “2 pack.”
In an Instagram post shortly after the game, Drake posted a photo of a championship trophy along with the words, “Omerta” and “Money in the Grave” featuring Rick Ross.
“THE CHIP TO THE 6!!!! SEE YOU 2MRW WITH A 2 PACK LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOO,” he captioned the photo.
He discussed the Raptors win with reporters post-game, where he claimed that the team and fans “willed this into existence”.
“We manifested this, I told you the first time,” he said. “People like to make memes – make another meme out of this. It’s beautiful.”
The 32-year-old rapper certainly made his presence felt during the Raptors’ journey to the NBA Finals as he was heavily criticised for overzealously showing his excitement and enthusiasm each time they won a game.
With the Raptors winning the title, it seems safe to say that the ‘Drake curse’ is finally over.
