Drake was reportedly facing arrest in the bottle throwing incident that occurred a few days ago, however those reports were soon disputed by NYC authorities.

releases the visual for his hot single “The Motto” just in time for your Christmas eve get-together! Woo-hooo!
I love this song and if you’re like me, listening to it with earphones will make your right leg twitch like “Niggas in Paris” did that dude on the NYC subway . But I digress….
Aubrey teams of with his Young Money bossman Lil Wayne and fellow YMCMB member Tyga for the video as the three pay homage to the Bay area. He also tributes slain West Coast rap legend Mac Dre, by featuring his mom as the intro to the video.
“We only life once… that’s the motto!”
Of course a video shot in the Bay wouldn’t be official without E-40, who makes a cameo alongside Mistah FAB.
Drake is from Toronto, Wayne is from New Orleans, and Tyga is from Compton, but they show much love to the Bay as Drizzy drives around with plenty of scenic shots using the beautiful Golden Gate bridge as a backdrop.
