With NBA's All-Star Weekend kicking off in Toronto on Friday, the city's major John Tory is presenting hometown hero Drake with the key to the city.

"Drake is Toronto's biggest champion: in his music, his mentorship of local talent, and his presence on the world stage," Tory said in a statement. "He makes people feel good about themselves and their city, and he has drawn the eyes of the world to Toronto. He deserves our city's recognition and our pride and I'm honored to give him the Key to the City."

Drizzy is set to coach All-Star Celebrity Game today, which is where he'll likely be presented with the key to Toronto.

Nelson Mandela, Celine Dion, The Rolling Stones, Tiger Woods and Muhammad Ali are among those who previously received a Key to the City of Toronto.
