In a game of 1 on 1 between Canadian rapper Drake and pop crooner Justin Bieber who would come out on top? Both singers have been seen playing basketball and Bieber does have some moves, like the ones he was showing when he tore up the court during the game for Kanye West’s birthday. On the other hand Drake threw an air ball at a Kentucky game which was caught on video, leaving many to suspect that Bieber might win at a game of 1 on 1. Klay Thompson is not one of those doubters though. During the Dan Patrick Show when Thompson appeared as a guest one of the questions covered various celebrities who have attended the games for the Warriors, and Klay named off Dave Chappelle and E-40 as some of the home game guests.
For the away games Thompson listed Drake and Justin Bieber as celebrities who had attended. Patrick then asked Klay whether Drake or Justn Bieber would win if they played a game of 1 on 1. Thompson choose Drizzy, quickly saying “I’m taking Drake. He’ll big body Bieber. Bieber is only 5-foot-9, 5-foot-10. Drake is bigger, and I’m sure he won’t let Bieber beat him.” Klay did give the Biebs props for his jump shot, which Thompson stated was “not that bad.” Which singer do you think would win a 1 on 1 game and why?
So far 2015 has been owned by Canadian artist Drake, even though the year is not over just yet. Rumor has it that Drizzy will be starting the new year off right with fans by releasing his newest album, Views From the 6. Sources say that the release of this album, which has had fans anticipating it for some time now, will happen around the new year. The album has been widely associated with the number 6 and also with prayer hands. Any Drake fan will also quickly recognize the owl that symbolizes OVO Sound as well. A new video teaser that was placed on the Twitter account for Daily Rap shows Drake with a cloudy sky behind him, with his face pulsing in sync to a heartbeat sound, with his eyes toward heaven and prayer hands in place. In the teaser the words “Hope you’re ready to face him” can be seen flashing on the screen.
The release date for Views From the 6 is expected to be early in January, starting the new year off on the right foot. 2015 was not a bad year for Drizzy, with two hit albums reaching number 1 and numerous special performances at festivals and events. A video of the teaser can be found below and from what it looks like in the video Drake’s newest album will be released on January 6, 2016 if everything goes as planned.We are not 100% sure the album will be release then. Hotline Bling will definitely be expected on the new album, but other tracks are still unknown and Drake has been very secretive about this project.

Drake’s mother has Jewish and Canadian heritage and she is white, while his father is African American who comes from Memphis, Tennessee in the USA. Drake has a mixed racial background because his parents are different races. Many people do not realize that Drake was raised mostly by his white Jewish mother. The rapper had a Bar Mitzvah and he went to a Jewish school as a child.
Drake’s parents divorced when the singer was only 5 years old, and Drake grew up in a Toronto home with his mother. As a child Drake lived in a Forest Hills neighborhood that was seen as a wealthy part of the city. Forest Hill Collegiate Institute is where Drake went to high school, but he didn’t graduate from high school because he followed his passion for acting. Typically Drake spent each summer with his African American dad in Memphis, Tennessee. One of the most inspiring quotes from Drake shows how his parents divorce affected him, with the rapper stating “I had to become a man very quickly and be the backbone for a woman who I love with all my heart, my mother.”
