This is becoming a pretty big week for Drake (as most weeks are, now). In addition to the release of his joint mixtape with Future, Aubrey recently opened a restaurant in Toronto called Fring's, with a commemorative event last night whose attendees included his likely-paramour Serena Williams and Jaden Smith. His collaborator, chef and restaurateur Susur Lee had this to say:
Today in Drake: A Restaurant and a Symphony Performance
Meanwhile, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra performed a cover of "Know Yourself" at the Polaris Prize Gala, celebrating Canada's premiere award in music. Drake himself wasn't there -- probably because he was at the opening of his restaurant -- but his biggest stan Norm was. And besides, for all that Drake has had his issues this summer and fall, it's hard to deny that having a symphony perform your/Quentin Miler's song to celebrate your contributions to the city/nation while you yourself ignore the event to open a restaurant is a pretty substantial flex.
