On Drake’s latest project If You’re Reading This Its Too Late, the rapper shouts out an unexpected celebrity on the track “6 Man.”
In the lyrics to the song, he references celebrity chef Guy Fieri, who was surprised by the mention. “Fieri, I’m in the kitchen, I’m a magician,” Drizzy rappers.
The chef spoke to First We Feast, saying it was a “total surprise.”
“I’m still getting a big grin out of that one. Drake’s an awesome guy. I love his music and energy,” Fieri said.
Fieri goes on to say that the rapper has “skills” in the kitchen, adding that he has an “appreciation” for good food.
“My nephew and son are down with contemporary culture, and one of them sent me a message that said, ‘Did you know about this?’ That was the morning it came out; and then Drake posted about it,” he explained. “It all got to me in a flurry. But how great? Because the guy has got skills in the kitchen, he really does. He has an appreciation for great food. It was quite a moment for me to get that name drop.”
