Drake’s music has been temporarily banned from one Milwaukee radio station until the end of this year’s Eastern Conference Championship.
Drake is well-known for a lot of amazing things, but it seems he’s been deemed a threat to sports teams after several coincidences where the singer has indirectly, yet mysteriously jinxed teams into losing games after supporting them. But with Drake’s hometown set to face off against the station’s hometown team, they’re not taking any chances.
On Tuesday, Milwaukee’s local 103.7 KISS-FM pop radio station posted a video to their Facebook page announcing that they have banned Drake from their rotation until this year’s Eastern Conference Champion wins, Complex reports.
“Until the Bucks series is over against the Toronto Raptors we’re hereby taking a BREAK from DRAKE,” the video’s caption reads. “The Raptors won’t be hearing their hometown boy on 103.7 KISS-FM. #BreakFromDrake #FearTheDeer.” According to station personalities Riggs, Alley Faith, and Gibbons, the decision was made based off Drake’s previous support of the Toronto Raptors. “Drake is from Toronto,” the DJ explained. “Drake is a big smack talker on the basketball court. I say until the series is over, we take a break from playing Drake. No more Drake until the series is done.”
The move is so serious that the radio hosts videotaped them removing Drake’s hit songs from their rotation list while yelling “Break from Drake!” The game first game starts at 8:30 p.m. ET n Milwaukee’s Fiserv Forum.
