Fellow Canadian Drake is the latest to pay tribute to the Tragically Hip’s Gord Downie, who died Monday (Oct. 16) after a battle with brain cancer. Downie was 53 years old.

Drake posted an Instagram photo the two at a Toronto Raptors game in May and wrote, “Rest In Peace legend. So glad we got to meet and have this conversation. You will be forever treasured by this country and missed by the world.”

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau also paid tribute to Downie in an emotional speech. “When he spoke, he gave us goosebumps and made us proud to be Canadian,” he said.
