During his Monday concert in Los Angeles, Drake made a reference to LeBron James.

The Lakers superstar, who attended the performance with his 18-year-old son Bronny James, received a special shoutout from the 36-year-old during his L.A. performance on Monday night.

According to Entertainment Tonight, when the NBA player, 38, and Bronny entered the Crypto.com Arena, Drake took them through the crowd to their VIP seats before hugging them.

Drake, actual name Aubrey Graham, paid an emotional tribute to the NBA legend after entering the stage.

“In 2009, when nobody believed in anything I had going on, that same guy showed up to a release party for a mixtape that was called So Far Gone,” the One Dance rapper said of the sports star.

Drake continued, “He came all the way to Toronto, Canada, to support me when I was trying to figure out how I could live my dreams. And so tonight, however, many years later, it’s an honour to be inside his building while we’re both still on this earth. I gotta do this building justice tonight. So I came to L.A. and I’m about to give you everything I got, I promise you that.”

LeBron later took to Instagram to share a sneak peek of the concert’s after-party. He posted an image of several bottles of alcohol and in the early hours of the morning, he posted a story with a black background, writing, “No excuses. Just work. Say less.”

The father-son excursion follows just months after Bronny was rushed to the hospital after suffering a sudden cardiac arrest during basketball practice at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
