It's currently -16 degrees Celsius in Toronto tonight -- that's around 3 F for all of us on the other side of the border. Despite the deadly temperatures, it's an exciting time to be in the 6, as the city is currently playing host to the 2016 NBA All-Star weekend. Indeed, there are many eyes on Toronto as well as the man who's emerged as the city's biggest star -- the OVO-helming rapper, whose Global Ambassadorship for the Raptors has made his city much more welcoming to NBA players and executives alike.
Drake has already thrown himself right into the All-Star weekend's festivities. Last night, he coached the Canadian celebrity team to victory, and before the game, he was awarded the key to his city by Mayor John Tory. He's set to announce the starting lineups in the big game tomorrow, but before that, perhaps a quick return to the airwaves -- with yet another episode of OVO Sound Radio, which has been Drake's platform of choice when it comes to releasing new music.
We should've expected it, but with the rampant tweeting of Kanye, whose album we thought would be here already, we got distracted. Of course Drake will use the increased visibility that comes with All-Star weekend to go ahead and give fans another taste of Views from the 6. Or will he?
What makes tonight's episode even more portentous is that today happens to be the 7th anniversary of Drake's beloved So Far Gone mixtape, as well as the 1-year anniversary of his most recent project, the already-platinum mixtape/album If You're Reading This Its Too Late.
Oliver El-Khatib is the only man listed on the bill, but that's not to say the episode won't be full of surprises. Stream episode 15 of OVO Sound Radio below here.
