Mac Miller recently made his way to Toronto this past November 15th to tear down Sound Academy. Before he hit the stage, I had the pleasure to sit down with him for a quick one on one interview. He started off comparing the city to a rainforest due to its multiculturalism, before explaining what he was holding on to on the “Delusional Thomas” mixtape cover. Mac also expressed his love of writing from other people’s perspective and says he has some more alter-egos in the vault waiting to unleash to his fans. He then revealed that he just got on board to executive produce a mini-documentary/animated psychedelic adventure titled “Hi, How Are You” about songwriter Daniel Johnston before telling me a funny story on set filming “Scary Movie 5” with Snoop Dogg. Mac also talked about a movie called “Turtle The Incredible Journey” and how it syncs up perfectly when playing it alongside his latest album “Watching Movies With The Sound Off,” similar to how Pink Floyd‘s “Dark Side Of The Moon” does with “The Wizard Of OZ.” He even touched on his many claims of being the grossest rapper ever saying, “I have nasty ass farts and I just like, fuckin puke a lot and have horrible coloured teeth, I just don’t care.” We ended off talking about his recent tour with Lil Wayne in Europe where he said he landed a pop shove it a few times, but doesn’t skate because everyone else does.
With the signing of rap megastar Drake as the team’s global ambassador, the Toronto Raptors are showing the rest of the NBA that they just wanna be successful.
They started from the bottom, now they’re here. Drake is the best they’ve ever had. This story is making massive headlines.
Don’t worry. The song analogies are now out of my system, but you get the idea.
Whether you enjoy his music or you don’t, there’s simply no denying Drake has massive mainstream popularity. From his platinum records to his numerous music awards, Drake has turned himself into arguably the biggest act on the planet.
Only good things can come from his association with the franchise. Over the course of the next few seasons, you will slowly begin to see just how much of an impact Drizzy Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, will have.
I’m not sure what exactly being a global ambassador entitles one to do, but with the passion he has for this new role and his undying love for the city of Toronto, this new partnership will undoubtedly lead to amazing things.
Frankly, what do the Raptors have to lose?
Aside from Drake and Future‘s performance of “Tony Montana” last night, Jhene Aiko also was brought out on stage at the Air Canada Center in Toronto for the “Would You Like A Tour?” tour. The lovely singer gave Drizzy a hand when it was time to perform “From Time” off the almost platinum album “Nothing Was The Same.” Watch the footage below.
Yesterday was Drake‘s 27th birthday and also his Toronto stop for his “Would You Like A Tour?” tour. Future is along for the road trip as a supporting act but was brought back out during Drizzy’s set to perform “Tony Montana” together. This marked the Atlanta rapper’s first performance in the city, and what a way to do it! What’s beef though!?
Ab-Soul was the main attraction at this years Smokers Club Tour alongside Joey Bada$$, which made its stop in Toronto last night at The Phoenix. The sold out venue went nuts for the TDE member who performed his classic material to his more recent bangers. Watch some footage of him performing “Druggys Wit Hoes Again” and “Illuminate.”
Chevy Woods performed last night in Toronto at The Phoenix for The Smokers Club Tour 2013. During his set, he debuted a new song off his forthcoming “Gangland 2” project.
