Young Money rapper Drake is not letting his publicized rejection at the Miami Heat's locker room last night (June 20) get him down and instead is laughing it off.
Drizzy hopped onto his Twitter page Friday (June 21) and downplayed the buzzing footage.
"I am media. Hahahaha.," Drizzy tweeted June 21.
"Ah man. Good times." (Drake's Twitter)
In the circulating 16-second clip, Drizzy is seen trying to go into the Heat's locker room for the champagne party.
Rapper Drake is a close friend of both LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. He tried to get to the locker room Thursday to celebrate the Heat's back-to-back championships with they dynamic duo but was rejected. You hope that poor security guard doesn't wind up getting fired. He doesn't know who the guy is, and he doesn't have a badge. I can tell you security was extra tight for Game 7 Thursday night so it's no surprise that even in the maelstrom following the Heat's victory that someone without a pass was denied. I guess he started from the bottom and still couldn't get to the level where he can get past security. Or, if you prefer, ahem.... Last name denied, first name access... (CBS Sports)
Despite the arena incident, Drizzy eventually teamed up with King James at a nearby club.
After the Miami Heat won their second-straight NBA title last night, they retreated to Club Story for the traditional celebration party. At last year's party, LeBron James wore a shirt with a picture of himself as a vampire on it, and sang on stage alongside Redfoo from LMFAO. This year, perhaps because he was so spent from a grueling seven-game NBA Finals series, he was a bit more passive. He appeared on stage at Story with Dwyane Wade and R&B artist Drake. At one point, they ordered pizza to the stage, and LeBron ate pizza and danced a little bit while Drake took the mic next to him. (Business Insider)
Thanks to LeBron James, the Miami Heat were able to defeat the San Antonio Spurs in a dramatic Game 7.
LeBron James and the Miami Heat remain atop the NBA, and not even a proud push from the San Antonio Spurs could knock them down. James led the Heat to their second straight title, scoring 37 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in a 95-88 victory Thursday night in a tense Game 7 that was tight until Miami pulled away in the final minute. Winning the title they needed to validate their best season in franchise history -- and perhaps the three-superstar system they used to build it -- the Heat ran off with the second straight thriller in the NBA's first championship series to go the distance since 2010.
