Toronto politician Norm Kelly has reportedly co-signed hometown hero Drake’s new “Summer Sixteen” banger this weekend.
In a now-deleted Twitter post, Kelly referenced a line Drizzy rapped aimed at President Barack Obama.
Drake’s reference-filled “Summer Sixteen” song premiered online Saturday (January 30) evening via Apple’s OVO Sound Radio show.
He states, “All you boys in the New Toronto want to be me a little.” This sounds like a shot at Tory Lanez. Tory Lanez recently dropped a mixtape called “New Toronto.” He also states, “I used to want to be on of Rocafella then I turned into Jay.” Drake also responded to Obama saying Kendrick would beat him in a rap battle with, “Tell Obama that my verses is just like the whips that he in, they bullet proof.” (Uproxx)
Although he did not name an exact date, Drizzy announced an April release for his upcoming Views From The 6 album during the same broadcast.
“We’re here working overtime on it tryna make it everything I know it should be and the album itself will be coming in April 2016, so 416, you know what’s where I’m from,” he said in reference to the Toronto area code. “I’ll give you a date later on. For now, just know we’re working, we’re ready for anything.” (Rap-Up)
