Unlike the "Jimmy Brooks" character he played on Canadian teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation, rapper Drake's street credibility is virtually nonexistent.
Rather than "gettin' brain on Biscayne" last night, the 26-year-old pop-hopper allegedly shouted down an elderly basketball fan at the American Airlines Arena. And Miami New Times puppet columnist Pepe Billete had a front-row seat to the action.
"Bitch ass Drake threatened a man in his 60s, 'I'll bust [your] ass,' but didn't say shit when I called him a hoe [sic] to his face," Pepe tweeted. "#PussyAssHoe."

After making an ass out of himself courtside, Drake continued to embarrass Team Drizzy underneath the bleachers. Banking on his celebrity clout, Drake weaseled his way to the Heat locker room, where he was denied access after it was revealed that he wasn't part of the team.
"No access for anyone but us?" the confused rapper can be heard asking. "What the fuck?"
Started from the bottom, and not much higher.
