Weeks after Milwaukee’s 103.7 Kiss FM barred Drizzy’s music from being played during the 2019 NBA Eastern Conference Finals, the Bay Area-based 102.9 KBLX has followed suit. The station announced a Drake ban in support of the Golden State Warriors, who are facing the Raptors in the NBA Finals.
“(We) could not stand on the sidelines and accept Drake showing no love for our Golden State Warriors,” KBLX operations and programs director Elroy Smith said, according to The Mercury News. “It is my joy to cease and desist all of Drake’s music on KBLX in support a team that is loved by the Bay Area and around the world.”
Smith added, “Oh yes, we are proclaiming a 3-peat.”
The series between the Warriors and Raptors is currently tied 1-1. Game 3 is scheduled to take place Wednesday night (June 5) at the Oracle Arena in Oakland and air live on ABC.
