Drake almost never misses an opportunity to shout out Toronto. Whether he's rapping about running through the Six or putting on local artists, his love for his hometown has rarely been in doubt. The Canadian rapper is a Global Brand Ambassador for the Toronto Raptors, and one of the perks of that title has been integrating Drizzy into various elements of the Raptors organization. There's an entire section of their website called the "Drake Zone" highlighting Drake-themed promotions, and he's often been spotted court side at games. They've even hosted a "Drake Night" event the last three seasons, celebrating their hometown phenomenon with free swag. But fans in Toronto are now claiming Drake has gone missing since this season's Drake Night. At last night's game against the Detroit Pistons, Raptors fans were spotted holding a sign accusing Drake of vacating his seat since that fateful November night: Twisting the title of "Fake Love" into a barb at the rapper himself is hilarious, though the content of the message deserves investigation. You can't necessarily trust the word of fans, and the possibility exists that Drake has kept an eye on the team whether from in the arena or from afar. However, this doesn't appear to be a new accusation from Raptors faithful, with allusions to his absence and casual fandom being made on social media for months.
