Drake heritage moment

Drake "Heritage Moments" are now a thing

Oh, the idea is fun. In the ever-growing list of Drake-related internet ephemera, the underground king (only 65 followers) is the recently hatched Drake Heritage Moments. Yup, it's what it sounds like. Loosely based on the treasure trove of Canadian nostalgia that is the "Heritage Minute," these brief vignettes trace the rise (and reign) of everyone's favourite emo rapper.

In keeping with Drake's obsession with his own nickname for Toronto, each segment is six seconds long and delivered as an easily consumed Vine. Notable highlights include the lint roller incident, Jimmy Brooks's tragic shooting on Degrassi, and Drake joking around at the Junos and ESPYs. In other words, there's a healthy mix of loving and teasing rolled into one package.

I don't know what's a better accolade -- the key to your hometown or your very own brand of heritage moments? Let us know what the account should reminisce about next in the comments.
