Last night Drake co-hosted King of the Dot’s “Blackout 3″ in Toronto. After the event was over HipHopDX had a chance to speak with the event’s host, Lush One, where he spoke about Drake’s long time support of King of the Dot. Lush also described his conversations with Drake as “very similar to the type of genuine curious and opinionated banter I exchange with the typical die-hard fans.” Check out what else he had to say after the jump.
“Drake is an active follower and supporter of the scene,” Lush told HipHopDX shortly after the event ended. “The type of conversations we have are very similar to the type of genuine curious and opinionated banter I exchange with the typical die-hard fans. It reminds me of sports fans discussing a game. He knows what’s up.”
Lush went on to add that Drake has gone to great lengths to show his support for the King of the Dot movement.
“[Drake] even openly said on camera [that] he basically considers himself KOTD staff and that KOTD is the greatest league in the world. He clearly has hometown pride and is just a fan of emceeing and lyricism in general. It’s obvious in his music, but the extent at which he rocks with it is staggering,” Lush continued. “His manager Hush is the same way.”
