Drake: The hip-hop star, 36, played one of his final It’s All a Blur tour stops at Scotiabank Arena in his native Toronto on Saturday and treated another special fan in the crowd. The rapper who released his album “For All the Dogs” on Friday picked someone at random to get his fans hyped by turning a raffle drum in anticipation.
The rapper said, “They got ‘em? Are they up top? You better bring your ass down here. We’re going to send somebody up there to check that ticket.”
Drake’s new Flex, which was a model of the Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon, according to the report, the basic model retails at $139,900.
One of his fans was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) and she was present at the event. In a Video shared by a person, the Canadian artist paused his set to address the fan’s message. “This one’s important to me,” told the crowd. “Her sign says, ‘I just found out I have MS, will you help make my night.”
He continued by talking about one of his friends and collaborator, the record producer 40 whose real name is Noah James Shebi was diagnosed with MS at age 22 in 2005. “You know, my brother 40 is one of the strongest people on earth, and he fights through a lot of things,” Drake shared. “So what I’m going to do is, I’m going to connect you with 40 first of all, maybe you can have a conversation.”
He continued, “And second of all, I’m going to pay whatever it takes to get you the best help in the world, I promise you that. You got my word — and you can come back tomorrow night!”
Earlier this month, Drake dropped his eighth solo studio album All the Dogs, which includes features from 21 Savage, Bad Bunny, Chief Keef, J.Cole, Lil Yachty, SZA, and many others. The recording artist revealed For All the Dogs may be his last record.
On the show, the star explained he’s taking time away from music to focus on his health. Drake shared, “I probably won’t make music for a little bit. I’m gonna be honest. I have some other things I need to do for some people that I made a promise to, but I probably won’t make music for a little bit. I’m gonna be real with you.
I Need to focus on my health first and foremost & I’ll talk about that soon enough.”
I want people to be healthy in life. I’ve been having the craziest problems for years with my stomach,” he added. “So I need to focus on my health and get right, and I’m going to do that.”
