Drake led the tributes to the victorious Toronto Raptors as the Canadian franchise made history on Thursday night by becoming NBA champions.

The Canadian franchise are the first side from outside the United States to win the NBA Finals after beating defending champions Golden State Champions 4-2 in the series after winning Game 6.

Drake, the franchise's global brand ambassador, has released two songs in celebration on Friday to coincide with the historic success.

Omerta and Money in the Grave are the new songs and the 32 year old said the Raptors "did what we had to do".

He said of the result: You just have to watch it happen. The six in six. Kyle Lowry with a ring.

"Kawhi Leonard bringing a chip to the city. I want my chips with a dip, that’s all I know. I don’t want my chips plain. I want my chips with a dip. So bring them dips. That dynasty’s over. We did what we had to do.”

Drake did not watch the game in California and instead watched it with Raptors on a big screen at their Jurassic Park fan zone in Toronto.
