Drake and Kevin Durant are friends. Time and again the duo has proved that they like to hang out with each other and Drake’s recent album “VIEWS” cemented the fact.
Drake’s latest album featured a track called “Weston Road Flows” in which he name-dropped Durant. This is the second time since his first name-drop on French Montana’s club banger, “Pop That”.
“Shout out to KD, we relate, we get the same attention/It’s rainin’ money, Oklahoma City Thunder/The most successful rapper 35 and under/I’m assumin’ everybody’s 35 and under.” Drake rapped in his “VIEWS” album song.
Earlier this week, the Thunder’s forward was asked about the line during practice. Durant replied that the shout-out made him feel special and he felt that he has “made it” after his friend name-dropped him.
“Yes, it was kind of surprising. When your favorite rapper pitches the name of your song, you just feel like you made it.” Durant said, as posted by Erik Horne on his Twitter account.
Drake’s and Durant’s friendship goes back a long time and we have seen various instances which prove the fact. Back in 2014, the Canadian rapper made an attempt to recruit the Thunder’s forward to the Toronto Raptors. Durant was then attending the OVO fest which resulted in the Raptors getting fined $25,000 because of tampering. It also resulted in the franchise tweaking the global ambassador title of Drake, according to FOX Sports.
In 2015, Durant once again attended the OVO fest which reignited the rumors of him moving to the Toronto Raptors. However, the rumor is a distant memory now.
Although the 6-ft-9 forward’s future move to Toronto is uncertain, Drake’s friendship with him is a certainty. The “VIEWS” album once again proved how close the duo are and it may not be surprising to experience another name-drop in the future.
