It's A Rap: 'Canadian Boy' Hits High Note For Raptors' NBA Glory

Drake has been the team’s most visible supporter, next to ‘superfan’ Nav Bhatia–and there’s plenty of rap songs extolling the league’s new champ. However, none has quite captured the moment quite like Peter Jackson.

It's A Rap: 'Canadian Boy' Hits High Note For Raptors' NBA Glory

By FYI Staff

It’s a rapturous time for Canada and Toronto specifically with the Raptors triumphant sixth-game victory that has won them the NBA title.


Drake has been the team’s most visible supporter, next to ‘superfan’ Nav Bhatia–and there’s plenty of rap songs extolling the league’s new champ. However, none has quite captured the moment quite like Peter Jackson who first made a name for himself in 2015 with his We The North playoff anthem, and late last month the self-proclaimed ‘Canadian Boy’ released Toronto Raptors 2019 NBA Finals Anthem on his YouTube channel with100% of profits from the track going to the MLSE charitable Foundation.

Shaq’s Classic Song ‘You Can’t Stop the Reign’ Featuring Biggie Is Finally on Streaming Services

There's a more explicit Biggie verse in the vault, according to the NBA legend.

Shaq’s classic with Biggie is finally available on streaming services. The news was broken by FakeShoreDrive on X earlier this week, and the Hall of Fame big man confirmed the news Thursday afternoon (June 13).

The year is 1996 and Shaquille O’Neal and the Notorious B.I.G. are two of the biggest figures in their respective fields. Shaq was entering the last year of his deal with the Orlando Magic before he headed west to the Los Angeles Lakers at the end of the 1995-1996 season. Biggie was getting ready to release his sophomore album, Life After Death, while in the throws of a beef with 2Pac. Big name-dropped the NBA player on the song “Gimme the Loot” off his debut album, Ready to Die, and the two had a mutual respect for each other ever since.
