Will it serve "Pound Cake," "Passionfruit" and "Lobster and Celine for all my babies"?

UPDATE: Reps for Drake have denied to Billboard that he is opening a restaurant. 

We know by now that "Pound Cake" and "Passionfruit" rapper Drake is a fan of food metaphors. But is the hip-hop foodie going one step further to open his own restaurant?

Some fans think so.

The rumors first started to swirl after an advertisement for what looks like a bar and restaurant called Pick 6 cropped up in Toronto's financial district bearing Drake's OVO logo. Adding to the speculation that this will be an eatery and not a retail store, the spot where Pick 6 is setting up shop used to house Houston Bar and Grill. Will it serve "Lobster and Celine for all my babies," or does Drake prefer "running on a treadmill and only eating salad?"

There's no word of confirmation from Drake's team yet, but the 30-year-old rapper did recently invest money in trendy NYC cafe MatchaBar, as the brand expands into Whole Foods stores. And the rapper is also tied to Fring's, a club and restaurant that opened in Toronto last year.

Check out the photo evidence that Pick 6 might be Drake's latest undertaking, below.
