Drake apparently does it all, as he’s now played a part in providing better Internet to his fellow Canadians.
According to HipHopDx, in July 2019, Drake requested for the mayor of Pickering — a city in Ontario, Canada — to create “stronger wifi towers” for award-winning producer Boi-1da, who appeared to be having trouble sending over beats.
“Can the mayor of Pickering set up some stronger wifi towers so @boi1da can be able to send me all his newest beats?? Trying to cook up. Thanks,” Drake asked via Instagram.
And to no surprise, they delivered.
Pickering previously issued a response to the rapper sharing plans to expand and strengthen the broadband network in the city. Now, it appears the city has kept its promise to fix internet connectivity issues for its hamlets and rural areas.
“Drake’s call for better Internet in Pickering is answered! Remember when Drake called on the “Mayor of Pickering” to fix Internet connectivity issues where his regular producer, Boi1da, lives and works,” an Instagram post from the City of Pickering read. “Well, as a result of the City of Pickering’s advocacy for broadband and Bell Canada’s recent expansion of pure fibre Internet in Pickering’s hamlets and rural areas, Grammy award-winning producer, Boi1da, can now collaborate with top music artists like Drake, Eminem, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, and Jack Harlow directly from his home studio here in north Pickering.”
What’s more, it appears even more locals will be able to enjoy better connectivity. The city also announced its plans to provide 21,000 locations with all-fibre broadband access over the next three years.
Not Drake's First Time Helping Out His Fellow Canadians
This is not Drake’s first time helping out his fellow Canadians. As AfroTech previously you, the 6 God declared he would consider buying Randy’s Patties, a popular Jamaican restaurant for many in Toronto.
I’ll buy Randy’s right now,” he wrote on Instagram.
While it’s unclear whether it’ll happen in the future since the establishment is now closed, the idea wasn’t too far-fetched!
