Drake’s new album “Certified Lover Boy” is full of incredible moments, and his shoutout to one basketball superstar is definitely among them. But the inspiration behind the shoutout may surprise you.

The Canadian rapper showed some love to Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks on his song “7am on Bridle Path.” A line on the first verse of the track went, “Could at least keep it a buck like Antetokounmpo. I made north of the border like Vito Rizzuto.”
