Who said rappers couldn’t be nothing more than a rapper, rap star Drake joins the ranks of others like Jay-Z, Usher and Will Smith to become more than just verse spittin thugs, but actual suit and tie wearing business men.

“Today’s probably one of the best days of my life,” Drake said by phone from Toronto. “I got to throw on the suit and be announced as the global ambassador of the Toronto Raptors.

“I can’t wait to add everything I can.”

With the announcement of the 2016 NBA All Star game being played in Toronto,  The Raptors also took the opportunity to announce Drake as an addition to their office.

“Jay-Z just sent me a congratulatory email, which is very nice of him,” Drake said. “He’s the best guy in the world. One of the most important people in my life.”

How did this all come about…

“I came into the venue one night and I guess was extremely outspoken about what I felt could change, as far as the building goes,” Drake said. “That sparked a discussion and (we) sat down and decided we had the same visions.

“It just turned from a discussion to a reality.”
