Drake watches restaurant burn
Christmas Day a fire tore through two restaurants in Toronto’s upscale Yorkville neighbourhood in what police say is “suspicious.”
Spuntini Ristorante and Sotto Sotto’s went up in flames as Drake watched this 4 alarm blaze. And it turns out to be one of his favorite dinning out spots.
Posting to his Instagram pictures of the fire with the caption, ‘Truly the end of an era. Be back soon though. #SottoSotto.’
Sotto Sotto owner Marisa Rocca said she will rebuild, “We owe it to our history, our team and our patrons to rebuild, We will come back stronger than ever.”

Drake Introduces Toronto Raptors
It was Drake night at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto last evening as the rapper introduced the Toronto Raptors as they faced off against the Brooklyn Nets in a NBA game.
With his new song 6 God playing in the background Drizzy named off each player as they entered the court and doing a great job. This is his first time with the intro’s and we’re sure it won’t be his last.
ESPN’s Jon Barry and Mark Jones interviewed Drake partway though the game with Drizzy saying that he is working on “some great things for the beginning of the year”.
The Raptors went on the game with 105-89 victory after another dominant fourth quarter finish.

“So when Diddy punched him in the shoulder he needed to get it checked out. He was just punched in the shoulder, not in the face.”
Drake Joins With KOTD for ‘Blackout 5’ Rap Battle
Drake and King of the Dot Entertainment will be organizing Toronto’s “Blackout 5″ rap battle to be held at a unknown location this February 2015.
Drake has been supporting his Toronto league for years, occasionally dropping in and contributing money make additional battles possible at the 2013′s “World Domination 4.” Earlier this year it was thought that Drake was interested in battling, but doesn’t sound like it will happen.
A video teasing by KOTD co-founder Organik has been released for the “mystery event,” saying “Officially teaming up with the big homie Drake to bring y’all the biggest battle event in history!!”
Adding that Drake will be involved, stating that the 27-year-old signing on marks the “the beginning of something huge.”
It is not known the extent of Drake’s involvement but the Toronto native won’t actually be participating in the lyrical bout.
Drake and Diddy fight at Miami Club
Rappers Drake and Sean “Diddy” Combs got into it outside the Fontainebleau Hotel, a top Miami nightclub following an argument regarding music rights.
A source said, “Drake and Diddy got into a fight outside the club. They were arguing over the rights to a song, and got into a physical fight. Diddy claimed that Drake was using music without the proper rights.”
Adding that other reports saying that the fight was over Diddy’s girlfriend Cassie, were not true. the source went on to say that once the fight was over, Drake left the scene while Diddy went back inside the club.
The two rappers were at a birthday party for DJ Khaled. Rick Ross’ DJ, Sam Sneaker, who was also there, tweeted, “Diddy put hands on that boy… And he Ain’t go 0-100 … That boy left.”
Later Sneaker tweeted before 7 a.m., “Drake at the Hospital Smh”.
Prior to the party Drake was seen dining at Siena Tavern Miami with his producer Angelo Ferraro and an entourage.
Some speculated that the beef might go back to February this year when Drake dissed Diddy onstage at the NBA All-Star weekend by grabbing his microphone out of his hand as they performed together.
