The NBA playoffs are about to begin, but that's not the reason Drake is back.

On Friday, the hip-hop megastar released the video for his new song, "Laugh Now Cry Later," and it is loaded with cameos from all over the sports world.

Warning: NSFW language.

It starts with Drake taking over the Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. Then he plays one-on-one basketball with Kevin Durant.

Then it's some football with Cleveland Browns receiver Odell Beckham Jr. and a very awkward baseball swing from a balcony. Then comes Marshawn Lynch to instantly create a meme and add to his litany of epic performances.

There's some intense running, some swimming and singing underwater, and Drake rides in a boat and shops at the Nike employee store as well, but the best moment is his homage to LeBron James' NBA draft night photo.
