It’s no secret that Drake likes to represent hard for his hometown of Toronto, and he shows his Canadian pride whenever he can. He’s not just a rapper who went hard for Canada in hip hop, and not just simply a Canadian rapper, but he is one of the biggest rappers in the world right now. So, how exactly did his home city honor him? They have decided to grant him the key to the city.
