Drake Sampled These YouTubers In His New Track And We're Here For It

Watch the hilarious original video from 4YallEntertainment, the Canadian YouTubers that Drake sampled in his track "Madiba Riddim".
Drake's latest music project "More Life" is taking the internet by storm; so much so that it's already smashed Ed Sheeran off the top of the charts. And while most of that will be down to the hype and sheer talent he brings to the table, we can't help but think there was a tiny bit of help from Team Internet.
Because Drake is a big fan of referencing his home city of Toronto, one of the tracks on "More Life" includes a sample from some local talent; but instead of music, this time he took his inspiration from the YouTube scene. A soundbite from Brampton-based comedy collective 4YallEntertainment features at the end of "Madiba Riddim", from a sketch that parodies Toronto fights and slang. After looking it up, we can see why a guy like Drake would feature it - the humour is brilliant.
Watch the original video that Drake sampled below.
You can find the exact moment around the 2:35 mark.
It looks as though the guys of 4YE and their fans are pretty psyched about being featured on "More Life"; and tbh, we can't blame them.
