One Milwaukee radio station is saying it will leave Drake’s side in the hopes the result is an offer of champagne.

It’s the Eastern Conference finals and that means it’s time to do whatever it takes to reach the end. That’s why ahead of the series opener between the Milwaukee Bucks and Toronto Raptors, 103.7 KISS FM in Milwaukee is taking a “break from playing Drake.”

The hosts of morning show Riggs & Alley announced it Wednesday morning, 12 hours before Game 1 tips in their city, and shared the news on Twitter.

Alley Faith is a little upset at the news, but quickly turns. The station also won’t play tracks on which Drake is a featured artist.

“We pledge until the series is over to take a break from Drake,” Riggs said as he leads the co-hosts and their producer to go delete the “In My Feelings” file. They then continue to chant both against Drake and for the Deer.

“In My Feelings” was the song of summer 2018 and features the famous lyrics, “Kiki, do you love me? Are you riding? Say you'll never ever leave from beside me” and “I buy you Champagne but you love some Henny.”

Drake is a boisterous trash talker from Toronto who serves as a “global ambassador” for the Raptors and one of its most high-profile fans. His songs are constantly in the top 10 of the Billboard charts and are heard on basketball warmup mixes around the country.

The radio station’s decision is a bold one that’s surely popular in Bucks land. Yet its biggest concern should be the rapper’s recent discovery that he can wield the Drake Curse to his advantage.

He’ll take care of you.
