Raptors’ Amir Johnson Gives Away Dozens of Copies of New Drake Album to Fans in Toronto (Photos)

Drake’s new album, Nothing Was the Same, dropped on Thursday, and dozens of fans in the rapper’s native Toronto were able to pick up a copy free of charge.

The gifts came courtesy of Raptors forward Amir Johnson, who bought up the entire supply of the new album from HMV and Future Shop, a pair of electronics stores in downtown Toronto, and gave them away free to fans on the street.

Unlike Drake, Johnson does not hail from Ontario’s capital — he’s a Los Angeles native — but the 6-foot-9 power forward has been playing basketball north of the border since 2009. It’s safe to say he’s earned himself a couple dozen new fans.

Check out Johnson’s album giveaway in the photos below, with a fist bump to For the Win.
