Drake Opens Nightclub in Honor of His Grandparents
Drake is a nice guy. His enduring kindness is on display once again in his latest business venture, a Toronto sports club dubbed SherClub, which culls its name from his grandparents. "Rest in peace to my grandparents Rueben and Evelyn Sher," Drake posted on Instagram, underneath a picture of himself at the new club's entrance. "My grandmother was the first person to ever play catch with me and my grandfather was the biggest sports fan in the world. I opened this club in the memory of both of you."
Though we're only five months into the year, it's already been a roller coaster of sorts for the Toronto native. There have been very public lows--a Cocahella performance with which he was disappointed, his failure to marry Madonna--and extraordinary highs--his surprise album from February, If You're Reading This It's Too Late, broke Spotify streaming records and spawned a bevy of charting hits. When Kanye West debuted "Wolves," a Vic Mensa- and Sia-featuring song that is said to lead off West's forthcoming seventh album (then titled So Help Me God, recently amended to Swish), the Chicagoan said the title was pulled from a planned collaboration LP with Drake. That album has yet to materialize, but West's admiration for Drake speaks volumes about the latter's place in hip-hop.
