"I am media," Drake said, after being turned away from the Miami Heat locker room yesterday (June 20).

After the Heat won the their consecutive second NBA championship, this year over the San Antonio Spurs, Drake headed to the team's locker room to congratulate them and team player and friend, LeBron James.

When denied access by security and told only media was allowed through, the bewildered rapper responded with "I am media."

Before footage surfaced, NBA reporter, Alex Kennedy, tweeted of the incident.



Before heading to Miami for the championship game, Drake made a special apperance at J. Cole's 'Dollar and A Dream' NYC show. Both rappers headed over to Best Buy in NYC's Union Square afterwards and bought all available copies of Cole's sophomore album, "Born Sinner."
