Drake, LeBron James and Chris Bosh came together for a recent interview amongst each other to talk all things Toronto basketball and NBA great Vince Carter’s impact.
Promoting The Carter Effect, a brand new documentary about Carter’s influence and relationship with Toronto, Drake reflects on how Vince’s popularity brought rappers to the city and made clubs feel like “entirely different worlds”. “Jay-Z even came to perform in a parking lot for Roc The Carabana, and that had never happened before!” Drake says.
“It’s been a journey,” Drake says about his hometown’s emergence as a basketball hotbed. “The further we get, the more we forget the early stages. There were times it was really tough to transcend that border. We have a city that’s so proud, and people that are diehards, not just from basketball but for everything.”
