(AllHipHop News) Canadian rapper Drake will get the key to Toronto in a ceremony Friday February 12, the mayor announced earlier.
The announcement came via Twitter and Mayor John Tory said the T-Dot native deserved ”the highest honor we can give.”
Continuing Mayor Tory said, ”I believe the key should go to individuals who make people across the city feel good about themselves and about their city. It should make us proud of who we are and what we can achieve. I want these moments to inspire us, as a city, and to send a real message: Toronto can do great things.”
Drake is in contention for another honor this weekend, Rap Album of the Year at the Grammys this weekend.
Tomorrow I’ll give out the Key to the City. This is why. @Drakehttps://t.co/dfdIVQW3yk
