San Francisco Radio Station Bans Drake's Music For Trolling Warriors During NBA Finals
“His taunting toward the Warriors must stop.”
Drake‘s courtside antics against the Golden State Warriors has led to a San Francisco radio station banning his music.
Urban Adult Contemporary station KBLX has reduced playing Drake’s music according to Mediabase via Variety.
“…three Drake songs in regular rotation saw significant drops in the past two weeks – ‘In My Feelings’ went from two plays to one, ‘Passionfruit’ from six plays to zero and ‘One Dance’ from three to zero, while ‘Hold On We’re Going Home’ with Majid Jordan went from four plays to none. Overall Drake dropped from a ranking of 56 to 314 on the station’s airplay chart,” Variety reported.
Along with this, the radio station has been starting Drake songs, only to stop them and switch to a mashup of voices of Warriors players and Queen’s “We are the Champions.”
“The Golden State Warriors will 3-PEAT. Our listeners are in absolute support of the station’s decision to ban all Drake music until the NBA finals are had by Stephen Curry and the Warriors,” Elroy Smith, KBLX’s program director, told Variety. “Our social media is blowing up with reaction from both Raptors and Warriors fans. Raptors fans are steadfast and supportive of their team. Drake started it by disrespecting the Warriors. His taunting toward the Warriors must stop.”
Among the latest troll tactics Drake has done against the Warriors, following the Toronto Raptors’ win against the Warriors on Wednesday, the rapper took to Instagram to share a joke about Klay Thompson. Thompson didn’t play during the game because of a hamstring injury.

Prior to that, he trolled Stephen Curry and Draymond Green after Toronto’s Game 1 win, taking to Instagram to say he was selling Curry’s hair lint on eBay with the username DraymondShouldntWear23.

In retaliation, the Warriors played Pusha T‘s Drake diss “The Story of Adidon” before their third game against the Raptors.
