Reporters caught up with the “God’s Plan” rapper after the Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors 114 to 110 in Game 6, and he couldn’t barely contain his emotions.
Drake absolutely lost it the minute his team won, screaming and jumping on his fellow Raptors fans. He also displayed his national pride post-game, holding up a Canadian flag while celebrating the victory.
Later, Drake gave an impassioned, at times confounding post-game speech to the press that felt like he was one of the players on the team instead of just a superfan.
"Tonight belongs to Toronto," Drake said, after the @Toronto Raptors defeated the Golden State Warriors 114 to 110 to become Canada's first NBA champions.MORE #WeTheNorth coverage: https://etcanada.com/news/464111/raptors-win-celebrities-react-to-canadas-first-nba-championship-victory/?utm_source=notification

“This is poetic! This is poetic. You just gotta watch it happen,” Drake said, in awe of the moment. “Kawhi Leonard, bringing the chip to the city. I want my chips with the dip, that’s all I know. I don’t want my chips plain, I want my chips with the dip.”
“We did what we had to do,” Drake continued. “It’s not about what it means. You know what it means. You can turn your cameras up to the screens and know what it means.”
“We did this. We did this off of heart. We did this off of love. We willed this into existence, we manifested this,” Drake added, with emotion. “You see what my hat says. Not ‘Finals,’ not ‘Eastern Conference,’ not ‘Nice try’ or ‘See you next year.’ It says ‘Champions!'”
Drake wasn’t the only star celebrating the Raptors’ big win. Here’s a look at how some of Hollywood’s sports fans reacted to the victory.
In celebration, the rapper also revealed that he’s dropping two new songs on Friday!
