Many people especially those from the Philippines have been talking about the Manny Pacquiao spoof that Drake did a few days ago. It was really weird to see one of the best rappers in the world do an impersonation of the Filipino boxing champion.
We all know that Pacquiao is not only a great athlete, but an entertainer as well. In fact, he even starred in several movies, including “Wam Bam Pac’s The Man” and “Brown Soup Thing”. The 35-year old boxer also appeared at “Jimmy Kimmel Live” several times showing off his singing and acting skills.
Manny Pacquiao did a duet with comedian Will Ferrell and they sang the classic Beatle’s song “Imagine”. Last April 2, he did an NCAA pool skit and that was really funny because he was assigned to be the debt collector.
Now, it’s Drake’s turn to do a Manny Pacquiao spoof and that got mixed reactions from the netizens. The Canadian rapper dressed up, talked, and even sang like the current WBO welterweight champion!
Drake was the host of the Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly (ESPY) Awards this year and he did an awesome job of impersonating one of the greatest boxers of all time. The 27-year old musician wore a sweatshirt and preparing for his song inside the recording studio.
He said, “Sometimes, people only want Manny Pacquiao to fight all the time. I can’t fight for the rest of my life. I have to do different things that make me happy so I like to sing.” Then he started to sing the theme song of Frozen, “Let It Go”, like the boxer.
Drake talked about the song and said, “It’s like a metaphor…like the world is so cold but everybody is still so happy and it really affected me because I used that as a motivation in my life.”
When his mentor asked him if he is worried about (Floyd) Mayweather, the rapper acted out like Pacquiao and said: “Well, to me it’s warmer in July… So I’m not really, worried about the, May weather.” He definitely has a point, right?
