A piece of history.
- Yesterday, Drake honored Canadian gold medalist swimmer Penny Oleksiak with free front-row tickets to one of his concerts. Last night, he had a different sport on his mind when he chose to honor another renowned, decorated athlete. At a Columbis, Ohio tour-stop for his current trek in support of Views, Drizzy decided to bring Lebron James onstage. So far, Drake’s tour has been killing it when it comes to special guests, and last night was no exception. Judging by the elated crowd’s reaction, everyone experiencing last night’s show was happy with their ticket purchase. “”Ohio, if you don’t make some noise for ‘the King’ right now you’re out of your mind…Now we gotta do it for old time’s sake,” the OVO rapper exclaimed during James’ introduction. For his part Lebron James said, “Yo one time, Columbus, Ohio, give it up for Drizzy motherfucking Drake, and one more time for my brother Future who killed this shit tonight.” Drake even switched up some of the “Pop Style” lyrics to fit in some Lebron references.
