Toronto has long been a hotbed of Caribbean culture (this weekend's Caribana festival is one of the world's great West Indian carnivals), so it's no surprise that Drake soaked up some yardie vibes coming up in the T-Dot. No wonder he trekked to Jamaica to shoot the video for "Find Your Love" (which featured Mavado in a very convincing gangsta role). More recently he's been spotted at Toronto dancehall sessions and tweeting about how Vybz Kartel should be sprung from prison. Drake's recent single "5AM in Toronto" features some up-to-the-minute dancehall slang "Str8 Y Pree?" he raps, which roughly translates to "why are you sweating me so hard?" It would seem to be only a matter of time before Drizzy collabs with a dancehall artist.
