Fellow Canadian Drake is the latest to pay tribute to the Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie, who died Monday after a battle with brain cancer. Drake posted an Instagram photo of the two at a Toronto Raptors game this May and wrote, “Rest In Peace legend. So glad we got to meet and have this conversation. You will be forever treasured by this country and missed by the world.”

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau also paid tribute to Downie yesterday in an emotional speech.
