Canada – Original version published Nov. 8, 2010 – Artists can do their careers a lot of good by submitting their music for the JUNO Awards. Despite that pretty much all awards tend to unfairly catch a lot of flack, between there being no single judging system used for determining nominees and winners that will leave everyone feeling like the system is 100% balanced, to artists and industry people voicing their displeasure due to projects they’re involved in not getting the recognition they feel they deserve, to outsiders thinking awards are little more than an opportunity for industry people to pat themselves on the back and party. The reality is that awards are often an integral part of the development of an artist’s career, both in terms of building their fan base and in garnering support from other industry people who can aide them in doing so.

Toronto, ON – Look. This is dedicated to the Drake fans in Toronto (and wherever you came from to have the Would You Like A Tour? experience) who didn’t hear their favourite song from Room For ImprovementComeback Season, or So Far Gone… but still feel like they are on top of the world through their unstoppable support of our amazingly inspiring brother: Aubrey Graham.
We’re here. It’s OVO O.G. Aubrey Drake Graham’s homecoming celebration. Air Canada Center. Rammed to bloodclot. On the born day of October’s Very Own: Wednesday, the 24th. Drake’s world, Drake’s world. Party times. Excellence.
Rather reminiscent of the early August/Caribana weekend summerjam of the year, aka OVO Fest IV, the Toronto massive came out in droves to support the biggest rap-star in the world today: Drizzy Hendrix. Now, welcome to: an ocean of pitch black and shining gold OVO shirts, special edition owl insignia Blue Jays fitteds, homemade Drake t-shirts, even, mothers with screeching daughters, hip hop heads from East of Scarborough to West of Brampton. 416. 905. 647. Every ethnicity imaginable. ‘Word On Road’ was in the building. Super models galore! The finest perfumes in the air. Maniacal tweens. Bewildered adults. Greedy scalpers. Hustlers, players and game-changers all coming through to the place to be.
Felt like Drake’s 27th birthday might be attended by around 26,000 friends and family members, by the way the venue was exploding with anxious and excited fans ready to celebrate the third-time’s-a-charm success represented by Nothing Was The Same. A new city has been crowned. A new artist is king. Hell, a new genre has been invented. Drake has taken care of Toronto. How do we thank him now? With love.
