A shared appreciation of basketball, rap and The 6 brought a trifecta of stardom to praise Toronto in this video

Drake, Cleveland Cavaliers superstar LeBron James and former Raptors star Chris Bosh discussed the rise of Toronto in a video posted on James’ Uninterrupted media platform on Monday. Toronto’s journey into becoming a world-class city, with celebrities, franchises and events was the topic of the 20-minute video filmed at Fring’s restaurant, which was named by Drake.

Drake, who grew up in Forest Hill, said it was once tough to “feel big” in Toronto and “transcend that actual, literal border.” But now, he said, “I think we’ve developed, like, a whole new monster over the years. I think we probably have some of the most passionate, prideful fans, you know. “We have a city that is so proud and we have, like, a bunch of people that are, you know, beyond die-hard for, not only basketball but just for like everything the city stands for.”
