Canada’s finest rapper will contribute to an exhibition at Sotheby’s this spring highlighting the works of prominent contemporary black artists, including Kara Walker, Glenn Ligon, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. In case you thought Saukrates was Canada’s finest rapper, that’s Aubrey Drake Graham who was tapped, “through a personal connection within Sotheby’s contemporary art department,” according to the New York Times. Also, “he is not being paid.” (More woes for the 6 God, I guess.) The show, for which Drake will provide musical pairings at various listening stations, goes on view April 28 to June 12 at Sotheby’s headquarters in New York. Just speculating here, but does this mean Drake will perform “Energy” for six hours straight and become a blue-chip buyer? Crazier things have happened.
