“I’m still getting a big grin out of that one,” Guy Fieri says. “Drake’s an awesome guy. I love his music and energy.”
Just a few weeks after Madonna praised the record “Madonna” off Drake’s latest project If Youre Reading This Its Too Late, another star mentioned on the 17-track effort has welcomed a shout-out from the Toronto rapper.
On “6 Man,” which appears at #12 on the project, Drake references Food Network star and celebrity chef Guy Fieri. “Fieri, I’m in the kitchen, I’m a magician,” Drake raps.
First We Feast spoke with the famed cook to get his reactions to the shout-out.
“It was a total surprise,” Fieri says. “I’m still getting a big grin out of that one. Drake’s an awesome guy. I love his music and energy.”
In addition, Fieri says that Drake has “skills” when it comes to 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. 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.”
