Rapper Drake did his best to recruit Kevin Durant to the Toronto Raptors last weekend.

Drake, an avid basketball fan and friend of Durant's (who's even shouted him out in songs) tried his darndest at OVO Fest in Toronto to get the crowd excited about a potential KD to Canada sell in 2016.

"I just wanna show one of my brothers something. My brother Kevin Durant was kind enough to come to the show tonight and watch us. I just wanted to see what would happen if he came to play in Toronto," Drake said.

(NOTE: Here's a link to the video. It has a bit of explicit language at the end)

A mild "KD" chant starts in the arena before Drake moves on.

Durant gave a shout-out to Drake Tuesday afternoon via Twitter.

 

 

The rumors have been hotter about Durant to Washington, but that won't keep Drake and friends from trying their luck. Newly-resigned Raptors guard Greivis Vasquez has also professed his desire to get Durant, his former high school teammate, in Canada.
