The mayor of Toronto called Kanye West a product of the local music industry — you know, just like Drake

From SheKnows Canada
John Tory, the mayor of Toronto, doesn't know who Kanye West is. And that's perfectly fair. I'm sure he's a busy man with lots of complicated mayoral things on his plate.

When asked about West performing at the Pan Am Games closing ceremony, Tory told City News, “I won’t say that I spend every single night at home listening to his music, but, you know what, I’m smart enough to know that a lot of people do. And I’m smart enough to know that he’s a proud product of our music industry here, as are a number of others.”
