Conor McGregor has declared his “bro” Drake’s new album a classic.

The Notorious took to Instagram to show his support for the rapper on the release of ‘Certified Lover Boy’.

“Certified Lover Boy out NOW! @champagnepapi,” McGregor posted to his 42 million followers. “40 nips in the whip but I dip. A classic bro! I’m on the way to @delilah right now to have them play it on blast.”

The post features artwork for the album and tags the LA celebrity hotspot Delilah.

McGregor and Drake have something of a bromance going on.

McGregor's early attempts at hip-hop were given the seal of approval by Drake on social media, who challenged the UFC fighter to drop an album

The Toronto rapper and the MMA star engaged in a hilarious exchange after Drake's Instagram post, which showed a shark at an aquarium over his shoulder with the caption: "Story of my life."

McGregor's reply read: "There's sharks everywhere but there was crocodiles too and look what happened to them. Slippers and bags!

"My brother love you, thank you for the 3 song release. Quality as always! Respect and God Bless to you and the team!"

Drake, clearly awed by Conor's lyrical skills, replied: "You got all the bars, drop a album."

Drake has long been one of McGregor's main celebrity fans. He showed support for the Irishman before his first fight with Nate Diaz and joined his entourage for his showdown with Khabib Nurmagomedov.
