Drake Throws First Pitch At Cleveland Indians Game


Drake throws first pitch and you’re out! Everywhere he goes Drake reps for his town of Toronto, but this weekend Cleveland Indian fans will be able to take themselves a picture when he’s standing at the mound. On Friday July 22 Drizzy will be throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at Progressive Field when the Tribe takes on their division rivals the Chicago White Sox.

Then on July 23, the Young Money/Cash Money soldier will be celebrating the city of Cleveland’s 215th birthday at the Ohio Homecoming. The birthday celebration has been known to draw crowds of up to 10,000 in the past and this year should be no different as Drake will headline a concert, which will also reunite hometown favorites Bone Thugs-N-Harmony. “They ain’t seen us, all five, since Flesh came out [of prison in 2008],” Bizzy Bone told MTV News. “We ain’t been able to really put on a showcase for ’em, and this is a beautiful platform. It’s gonna be thousands and thousands and thousands of people there, and it’s Cleveland’s birthday.”

BTNH also spoke on Drake’s decision to go on with the performance despite his uncle’s passing a week ago. “His uncle just passed away and he had to cancel a performance to fly up there to take care of his uncle and all of the business that goes around that,” Bizzy Bone said. “I was speaking with the promoters and the promoters were like, ‘He’s still doing this show.’ The brother is classy and I’m very grateful and thankful to know that in this industry those ones still exist.” -via MTV

    It’s exciting to know that true musical creativity has made it’s way back to the airways and boomin systems in the streets. Drake has worked extremely hard to take Hip Hop back to it’s roots. I love the inspiration, work ethic and versatility that he has. I highly encourage him to continue to do what’s necessary to reinvent his self. I love what your doing. I’m a passionate fan of Hip Hop and music as a whole. I see you Drake…..do your thing!
