Drake was in Tampa, Florida last night performing at the Amalie Centre for his Summer Sixteen tour, and took the opportunity to pay homage to a Torontonian that will be residing in Florida this upcoming season, Ahmed “Mr. 103” Ali.

Drake was repping a fresh Eastern Florida State College Titans jersey, where Ali will be heading this season to play.
The number represents the 103 point performance Ali had with John Polyani Collegiate Institute last season. The scoring effort put him in elite company, joining Denham Brown as the only other Canadian high schooler to score over 100 points.
Drake is close with Ahmed’s brother, Hassan Ali aka Top 5, a Toronto rapper. Drake have given multiple shout outs to Top 5, on Instagram and in the song Grammys ft. Future.
