Toronto rapper Pressa has been one of the opening acts on Drake’s Boy Meets World European tour.

He also has quite a rap sheet: the 20-year old is facing charges of kidnapping for ransom and assault with a weapon, following an alleged kidnapping and condo shoot up in Toronto last year.

He'll be facing those charges in October. But for know some are questioning why he was allowed to leave Canada as he awaits trial.

“I find it troubling,” said police inspector Mike Earl. “Here’s a guy (who’s) supposed to be on bail on serious charges. Why is he permitted to leave country and tour with somebody who is a literal mentor to the city’s youth?”
Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington also pointed his finger at Drake for taking Pressa along.

"There are questions for Drake, too. As a recipient of Toronto’s key to the city, is the international star concerned about not only associating with someone facing serious criminal allegations but also helping to facilitate and foster that person’s life and career."
Given Drake's status as an ambassador of Toronto, do you get the criticism?
