Drake Bows to Canadian Music Legend Gord Downie

From time to time, Drake has shown humility as a person in real life regardless of his music as he has always gave credit where the credit is due. That was the case when the rapper showed his respect to Canadian music legend Gord Downie earlier last night.

Downie is a musical legend in Canada by his own achievements. While he had a prolific career as the lead singer of the rock band The Tragically Hip, he also had success as an artist with five LPs. Although he was diagnosed with brain tumor, since then he has continued to produce massively successful shows.

On the other hand, Drake’s popularity and NBA presence has landed him the responsibility to host first ever NBA Awards Show where post-season NBA awards will be given out later this year. The event is set to honor NBA’s best, giving out trophies for Kia’s NBA Most Valuable Player, Kia’s NBA Rookie of the Year, Kia’s NBA Sixth Man Award, Kia’s NBA Defensive Player of the Year, Kia’s NBA Most Improved Player and NBA Coach of the Year.
