Former Raptors Star Makes Surprise Appearance in Drake’s Music Video
The 6ix gods have reunited once more!
On Friday morning, the global ambassador of the Toronto Raptors dropped his long-awaited album titled Certified Lover Boy. Drake, who broke all kinds of streaming records in the album’s first 24 hours, also released a music video.
The video for Way 2 Sexy, featuring Future and Young Thug was definitely tough to keep up with given everything going on in it.
One thing in particular which stood out to Raptors fans and set Raptors twitter ablaze was the appearance of the former Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard. At the 2:40 mark, the video transitioned to a white sand desert where the trio of rappers were joined by none other than Leonard doing quite possibly the most in-character awkward dance imaginable.

Leonard may have only spent one season in Toronto but his play has left behind a lasting legacy in the Canada as he helped lead the Raptors to the franchise’s first and only championship. While the superstar forward has since moved onto play for the Los Angeles Clippers, Leonard very clearly still has some sort of connection with Toronto.
All this video really was missing were appearances from Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, but who knows, maybe Drake has something else in store for his city!
