It seems Drake has a thing for being around champions, as Chicago Blackhawks captain and Stanley Cup champ Jonathan Toews helped Miley Cyrus introduce the rapper at the MuchMusic Video Awards in Canada.
The only problem was that Miley’s cue cards were apparently unorganized, which resulted in an awkward improvisation between Toews and Cyrus.
Luckily no one is counting on Toews to spark up some excitement off the ice, so really it was mainly Cyrus who got screwed over by the cue cards. Or maybe she screwed herself over by complaining about them every five seconds, take your pick.
You’ve already seen Drake bring out this year’s NBA MVP LeBron James onstage at a concert in Cleveland, and now the rapper has given five-time NBA champion Kobe Bryant the same honor in Anaheim.
After the Lakers championship this season Kobe is one short of Michael Jordan’s six, although I’m not sure if MJ ever got to go onstage at a rap concert or go on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Kobe addresses the crowd right before Drake performs the song “Over”. Just think if the Celtics won the championship that could have been Brian Scalabrine onstage.
The latest musician to get involved in the LeBron James saga is rapper Drake, who took advantage of The King’s presence at a recent concert in Cleveland.
At the concert Drake calls up LeBron onstage, to which he is greeted by chants of MVP. He even lets LeBron perform with him, in a Lil’ Jon-esque cameo shouting “Hey” while Drake spits his flow.
