California's Bay Area was whipped into a frenzy this Saturday (Nov. 26) thanks to a certain Canadian.

Drake hit Oakland, Ca to film the video for his track "The Motto" and brought along a few local favorites. Oakland MC Mistah Fab and Vallejo veteran E-40 stopped by the clip's set to lend their presence according to NahRight though neither are featured on the official version of Drake's homage to the Bay.

Featuring off-beat pops, snaps and handclaps, "The Motto," from the MC's sophomore effort Take Care, is perfect for piece to blend into a Mac Dre beat. And Drake kept the eccentric MC's spirit alive by rocking a grey and black cheetah print Northface coat and cranberry Nike gloves, despite the Bay's warm weather.

No official release date for "The Motto" video was announced at press time.
