Drizzy has been ripping off the Spike Lee shtick for the better part of the last two years with his hometown Raptors — conveniently trash talking players and referees courtside just as Toronto has finally become relevant since the Vince Carter/T-Mac days.
Dude wants the superfan spotlight, so when he got shown up in his own backyard during the biggest win in franchise history by a fellow Raptor supporter, of course this was the next logical step.
Here’s a refresher from game 4 of the man that trumped Drake’s fandom, Sukh Deo.
Two weeks later, and homeboy gets murked in cold blood on the streets of the 6.
Sukh Deo, 34, was inside a white Range Rover when two men started firing at him just before 3 p.m. local time in an alley near the busy intersection of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue.
Toronto police Supt. Reuben Stroble told reporters at the scene that the fatal shooting “is a big surprise for this area, especially at this time of day.”
The luxury vehicle had at least 14 bullet holes visible on the driver’s side window.
I think we can all put two and two together, and frankly, it’s a nice change of pace to see the rap game get its edge back. Just didn’t think Wheelchair Jimmy would be the one to return it back to its roots — literally murdering the competition. Some much needed street cred for a guy that just released a Charmin soft album in “Views.” Hopefully this transitions back into the hip-hop community and we get back to the good ol’ days of mainstream rap rivals actually turning “twitter fingers into trigger fingers.”.
