Drake is deep in "album mode," but the hip-hop titan needs some assistance from the major of Pickering, a city east of his stomping grounds of Toronto, if he's going to continue with the studio hustle.
On Tuesday (July 30), the 6 God took to Instagram Stories to ask mayor David Ryan for a favor. "Can the mayor of Pickering set up some stronger wifi towers so @boi1da can be able to send me all his newest beats?? Trying to cook up. Thanks," the 32-year-old chart-topper wrote. In typical social media fashion, the official Instagram account for the city of Pickering shared a lengthy answer to his post with all the Drizzy references that you could ask for and more.
"I’m Upset that @boi1da was having trouble with our public WiFi. It’s the Best I Ever Had, so I’m not sure why Matt couldn’t link up proper," the response read. "You Searching For Answers I Do not Know Nothing. Maybe it’s because 1,000 residents use our WiFi every single day? Our Wifi access points are very Successful and Make Me Proud. We Started from the Bottom, and Now We Here with 65 WiFi access points installed across Pickering in City facilities and some prime public areas. We look to deploy more WiFi access points, so in a couple of years, you’ll be able to go 0 to 100 Real Quick."
Not only did the reply include word that Pickering is inkling to build an airport, one that invites Air Drake "to be the first plane to land here," but it gave a shout out to city councillor Norm Kelly, who has been aptly dubbed the "6 Dad" and asked for Drake's inquiry to be escalated. "Shout out to 6Dad @normkelly who Boi1da reached out to. Norm personally called Mayor Ryan this morning to see if he could help. The 6ix & Pickering is a collab that’s just Too Good," the response concluded.
