Move over DJ Khaled, Drake is getting the biggest key of his career. The 6 God will be given the key to the city of Toronto today (Feb. 12).

According to the Toronto Star, Drizzy will be presented with the key during NBA all-star celebrity match, which kicks off the entire NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto.

In a lengthy Twitter essay, Mayor John Tory gushed about the OVO leader, who has become a national treasure to the city.

“This is a man who has achieved wild success, by any standard. And more than anything, he wants great things for Toronto,” he wrote. “This is a man who could live anywhere, but calls Toronto home. He wants us to be proud of him. And we are. I am.”

This is no doubt a huge honor for Drake who’s been repping the T-Dot since he began his rap career. The “Back to Back” rapper even dreamed of this moment on his latest song, “Summer Sixteen.”

“I might get a key to the city and give it to Wayne / Or give it to one of the young boys to carry the wave,” he spits.

Congratulations to Drake on this prestigious honor.

April. Head Crack.
