What a time to be alive. Drake and his Toronto Raptors finally have their “Big Rings” after officially being crowned the 2019 NBA Champions on Thursday. To celebrate the franchise’s first-ever title, the OVO rapper has dropped not one, but two new songs: “Omertà” and “Money in the Grave” featuring Rick Ross.
“THE CHIP TO THE 6!!!!!!!!!!!!” Drake wrote in an Instagram post announcing the two tracks. “SEE YOU 2MRW WITH A 2 PACK LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.”
Stream both new songs below. Update — Monday, August 26th: Drake has released the new music video for “Money in the Grave”. Directed by frequent Drizzy photographer Theo Skudra, the stylish black-and-white clip features Drake hanging out at a basketball court and construction site. There’s also a cameo from Ross and footage of the 6 God celebrating the Raptors’ win at a concert.
The Golden State Warriors may have dished out an excellent troll job during Game 3 of the NBA Finals, but it looks like Drizzy is getting the last laugh this time around.
Although a longtime basketball lover, Drake’s superfan status grew to new levels after being named the Toronto Raptors’ “global ambassador” in 2013. Since then, he’s been consulted on numerous team branding strategies and even hosts his own “Drake Night” games in Toronto. But his enthusiasm has gotten him into some trouble; earlier this month, the NBA issued a warning about his court side antics.
Drake’s last proper album, Scorpion, dropped July 2018.

“This is poetic…I want my chips with the dip.”
