People who appreciate their art will. There are literally thousands of artists in Toronto trying to make a living doing what they love, am I expected to give my time and attention to all of them despite receiving nothing I care for in return? What to you is support anyways, do I have to enjoy their records and buy their products? I wish Drake the best in what he does, I'm just not giving him a dime nor listening to him any more than I have to conclude I don't like his music.
Also, an artist and a business are vastly different entities. I'll give my money for goods and services that I need to a local business if possible, but I'm not going to give my time and taste to something I consume solely for my own personal enjoyment.
