Drake offered up quite the rendition of "O Canada" during Game 5 of the NBA Finals, and let's just say it was every bit sweeter than a spoonful of maple syrup. 

Cameras spotted the Canadian-born rapper belting out his native country's national anthem before tip off, and it didn't take long for the internet to take notice of the meme-able moment. Swaying side to side and with his eyes closed, Drake wasn't afraid to let his patriotic side shine through. 

The Toronto Raptors currently lead the Golden State Warriors 3-1 in the series, and Drizzy has been there every step of the way as his home team attempts to clinch their very first NBA championship title.

The "God's Plan" MC previously made headlines for his courtside behavior during Game 1 of the Finals. Drake attempted to troll Warriors star Steph Curry by wearing a signed Dell Curry jersey, who is Steph's father and just so happened to play for the Raptors years ago.
