The City Of Toronto Does It Very Big To Celebrate Drake's Big Grammy Win

The city showed the rap star some big, big respect last night.

(AllHipHop News) Drake has thanked the Mayor of Toronto John Tory for lighting up his hometown's landmarks on Monday night to celebrate his Grammys win.

The hitmaker made a surprise appearance at the Grammy Awards on Sunday to accept the prize for Best Rap Song for "God's Plan."

He used his chat with Entertainment Tonight backstage to urge the mayor to light up the CN Tower to celebrate his win.

"I wanna say that the mayor of Toronto needs to turn the CN Tower chrome and gold tomorrow," Drake said, before dropping some Canadian slang. "Are you stupid, are you dumb?"

Tory granted his request and the CN Tower, as well as the famed 3D Toronto sign outside City Hall, were lit up in gold on Monday night.

Drake shared pictures of the illuminated landmarks on Instagram and thanked Tory for coming through with his request.

"I was talking last night as if I don’t have these on control using the hue lighting app," he joked, adding a crying with laughter emoji. "Nah for real I love my city and this is my real sign of love and recognition thank you to the waviest (coolest) mayor John Tory!"
