Drake’s been hanging out with pretty much everybody since he’s been in the UK touring and now he can add Man City bad boy Mario Balotelli to that list.

Hearing that the rapper was in Manchester for a show, Mario invited him to watch his team play against Sunderland on Saturday and even gave Drizzy his executive box at the stadium to sit in.

After the match ended (with a score of 3-3) the footballer then took his new friend for a curry in the city centre. Classy. It must have been a good curry though, as the following night the YMCMB star shouted Mario out during his concert at Manchester’s MEN Arena, even referring to him as a ‘new family member’.

However, despite being ‘family’ the Italian born star stayed away from Drake’s official after party at Bijou, much to the relief of his manager Roberto Mancini.

We can’t help but notice how chummy Drake is getting with our footballers. He’s been spotted clubbing with Ashley Cole and Jermain Defoe in London and basically had a heart attack when he found out that Drogba is a fan of his music…

I guess we know what Drake will do if he ever gets bored of making music.
