“I’m here in real life,” said Drake, 31, according to Toronto Star columnist Bruce Arthur. The rapper also allegedly called Perkins a “f–king p—y.”
Perkins, an inactive player who signed with Cleveland at the end of last season, told ESPN via text message, “What happened was I was talking to my old teammate Serge [Ibaka] walking into halftime telling him, ‘We about to win this game,’ and Drake butted in talking s–t to me. So I said something back to him.”
After Tidal’s Elliott Wilson posted a screen shot of ESPN’s report on Instagram, Drake shared his side of the story. Sort of.
“I just said I liked the hem on his capris,” Drake commented.
The Raptors, who dropped their seventh straight playoff game against the Cavaliers, will have their next shot at revenge Thursday night.
