Drake’s latest cooking reference has earned him some props from Food Network star Guy Fieri. On the track ’6 Man’ from his recent release If You’re Reading This, It’s Too Late Drizzy big ups the blonde-haired TV personality with the line, “Fieri, I’m in the kitchen, I’m a magician.” FirstWeFeast recently caught up with the famed cook who expressed his thoughts when first finding out about the name drop. “It was a total surprise,” he said. “I’m still getting a big grin out of that one. Drake’s an awesome guy. I love his music and energy.”
The face of the Food Network says he was first told about the famous plug by younger family members, and also backed up Aubrey’s assertion that he can put it down in the kitchen. “My nephew and son are down with contemporary culture, and one of them sent me a message that said, ‘Did you know about this?’” he recalled. “That was the morning it came out; and then Drake posted about it. 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.”
The two first met in 2013 during an organized fundraiser in Toronto (pictured above). As for Drake, he’s eating good.
