When it comes to the age-old question of whether it’s better to be a rock star or a superstar athlete, Drake probably comes closest to having it both ways (all apologies to Shaq and Damian Lillard).

Canada’s favorite hip-hop son continued his love affair with all things basketball Wednesday night, sitting in with the Toronto Raptors broadcast team during a 126-113 Toronto victory over the Charlotte Hornets, highlighted by a victorious interview with point guard Kyle Lowry, who logged a season-high 36 points to go with six assists and five rebounds.

High points of the interview include Lowry admitting that he apparently didn’t know that Drake can sing before rallying to help Drake sneak in a plug for an apparel line he endorses.


Well done on all accounts, gentlemen.
