That Wasn’t the First Time Drake Got Caught Lint-Rolling

Drake got caught lint-rolling his pants court-side at the Nets-Raptors game last night, and today footage of the last-minute cleanup is all over the Internet. Never afraid to make light of himself, Drake even posted a photo to his own Instagram.


But while Drake may have owned up to last night’s incident, a little digging reveals that wasn’t the first time that Drizzy’s been caught trying to sneak in a little eleventh-hour sprucing in the midst of an intense situation. If you look closely, you can make out the shape of Drake’s lint-roller in each of the damning scenes below.
