Thursday was a good day for Drake.
Watching from Jurassic Park, Drake cheered along with thousands of other fans as his beloved Toronto Raptors won their first NBA championship in franchise history.
It was clearly an emotional night for Drake, and after the final buzzer sounded, the Canadian superstar celebrated as if he were a part of the team.
At one point, Drake was asked by a reporter about the win and launched into something of a spoken word, free association exercise about his emotions and "chips," a sports slang for championships.
"I want my chips with a dip, that’s all I know," Drake was sure to emphasize. "I don’t want my chips plain, I want my chips with a dip. Bring them dips."
On Twitter, some fans gave Drake a hard time for acting like he was out on the court with the team he supports.
Drake has been a prominent courtside fan of the Raptors for some time, but his sporting allegiances outside of Toronto have tended to change swiftly and go poorly.
After the Raptors win, a debate raged as to whether or not the Drake curse had been broken.
But regardless of any curse or criticisms on Twitter, Drake was going to celebrate his team and quickly announced that two new tracks would be released on Friday to commemorate the Raptors championship.
Congratulations to Drake and the Raptors.
