Drizzy Drake does not have the coolest feuds. Other rappers go at each other; Drake gets barked at by inanimate international hubs. The Toronto Star is reporting that the city of Toronto isn’t very happy with a billboard promoting Drake’s new album, Take Care (pictured above). The font is too similar to the city’s official logo (fair enough), and the owl is just hideously drawn. Plus, there’s way more people living in Toronto.
The city is reviewing its options; we hope that means a cease-and-desist order, if only so his next album can be titled Drizzy Vs. City Hall, or something. When we spoke to Drake last month, he talked about feeling like a king when he’s in Toronto. If a lawsuit comes up, we’d love to see that used as his legal defense. The Toronto Star seems to agree, according to this hilariously deadpan excerpt:
The chorus of one of Drake’s songs, “City Is Mine,” goes as follows: “Yo, the city is mine/Which one?/T-O-R-O-N-T-O.” It is not clear whether he mistakenly believes his ownership of the place extends to its intellectual property; his management company did not respond to a request for comment.
I speak for everyone ever when I say that would be amazing. Listen to "Marvin’s Room," off Take Care.
