Earlier tonight (March 15), Canadians tuned in to the annual Juno Awards, which is, more or less, the Canadian Grammys. The Weeknd, who hails from Scarborough, a suburb of Toronto, Ontario, was among the night's winners, taking home two Awards.

Last week we hit these New York streets to find out if anyone knows what Young Thug is rapping (nope). This week we return to find out how New York (aka hip-hop's birthing place) feels about a Canadian (aka Drake) running the rap game at the moment.
Drake recently sat down with Canadian broadcaster Jian Ghomeshi of CBC Radio for an hour-long discussion, touching on his background, musical identity, legacy, the songwriting process behind his new album Nothing Was The Same and much more.
