Drake Honored at Canada’s Walk of Fame

Drake

Drake suited up for his latest honor at Canada’s Walk of Fame on Saturday (Oct. 1). The Toronto-born superstar accepted this year’s Allan Slaight Award, which is presented to a young Canadian making a positive impact in the world of arts, sports, or philanthropy. As part of his award, he also received a $10,000 honorarium, which he donated to Dixon Hall, a community-based service that creates opportunities for low-income Toronto residents.

“I am a proud Canadian, and I am grateful to Canada’s Walk of Fame and the Slaight Foundation for this award,” said the Young Money rapper in a statement.

Peter Soumalias, Founding Director of Canada’s Walk of Fame, added, “At 24 years of age, Drake has already achieved what has taken others a lifetime to do. He is kind, smart, talented, philanthropic, and driven. He is an inspiring example to all, and we are proud to recognize him this year as our young Canadian making a positive impact.”

Drake will premiere the video for “Headlines,” the first single off his sophomore album Take Care, at 6 p.m. EST today.

    I love Drake, but jeez, smile, son, this is supposed to be a happy day, and you’re not supposed to embrace a kind of gangsta posture.
