Last week, Drake brought Derrick Rose and his son on stage at MSG and last night during the ‘Summer Sixteen Tour’ stop in Ohio, Drake brought his most famous hype-man in the world out: LeBron James.
LeBron, fresh off of signing a new 3-year $100 million deal, came on stage to perform ‘Pop Style” then gave a shout out to his “brother Drizzy motherfucking Drake.” Drake then asked the crowd to give it up for the “hometown hero” who “came back home and brought a motherfucking championship instead of doing anything different.”
This moment brings back great memories of our first event with LeBron and Drake back in 2010 at All-Star weekend. We got to cover the Sprite Showdown dunk tour and the finals were judged by LeBron, Drake and the late Darryl Dawkins. As a bonus for the fans, Drake performed his hit song ‘Forever’ while LeBron played the role of Spliff Star (Freaky Tah, Sen Dog get shout outs and even 2pac and Jay-Z) without a mic.
