Drake Night—a Raptors’ game dedicated to October’s Very Own—is a pretty big deal in the #6ix. And for one little Drake fan, it was an opportunity to show Toronto—and his idol Drake—what he’s got.
Yup, seven-year-old rapper Young Dylan (AKA Drake’s number one fan) from Annapolis, Md., took over the Raptors’s court last night at halftime to perform some of the rapper’s hits like “One Dance” and “Child’s Play.” Watch him dance just like the “6 God” himself in his Raps jersey and mini Timberland boots. And just because he’s tiny doesn’t mean he can’t deliver the lines—he raps without fail and even takes little pauses instead of the swear words. Too cute.
Of course, Drake was dancing on the sidelines. You could say Young Dylan is definitely in Drake’s posse now.
By the end of it, the rapper ran up on the court and held up Young Dylan like Simba from The Lion King. He even helped the little guy put his denim jacket back on (the one he had taken off during his performance).

This all comes after Young Dylan was featured on The Ellen DeGeneres Show back in September and performed on top of the hood of a car during the segment.
What can we say, the kid’s got talent. And with 91.3K followers on Instagram at the tender age of seven, we already know he’s going to go far!
