'Break from Drake': Milwaukee radio station bans rapper's music during Raptors-Bucks series

  • TORONTO – A Milwaukee radio station is giving superstar Drake the silent treatment heading into the NBA Eastern Conference Finals.
  • Hosts of morning show Riggs & Alley announced this week they’ve put a temporary ban on playing the Toronto rapper’s music over their airwaves as his hometown team battles the Milwaukee Bucks in the playoffs.
  • During the best-of-seven series, they say 103.7 KISS-FM will take a “Break from Drake” in hopes it’ll help the Bucks squash the Toronto Raptors.
  • “I say until the series is over we take a break from playing Drake.”
  • The trio launch into a “Break from Drake” chant before rushing into the studio and deleting his track “In My Feelings” from their radio playlist.
  • Pulling Drake’s music is a much bigger commitment than a few hit songs.
  • The tireless courtside supporter of the Raptors found himself at the centre of a supposed “Drake curse” after sports fans pointed out teams and athletes he supports often go on to lose.
