Drake Dines With University Of Kentucky Coach John Calipari
Drake spent his last supper before his ESPYs hosting gig tonight with close friend and University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari Tuesday night (July 15). Coach Cal posted a picture of him and the cheesing MC, rocking a Kentucky sweatshirt, on Twitter.

The OVO captain’s never been shy about his allegiance to UK. He rode the Big Blue wave throughout their tournament run, stopping by their locker room in the Final Four and repping for the squad during the NCAA final in Texas. Last week, Drake addressed Internet criticism about being a bandwagon fan. “Well, first of all, I’d like to say that despite what everyone on the Internet thinks, I do not team jump. In the past I’ve always supported the player and not the institution—unless we’re talking about the Kentucky Wildcats and the Toronto Raptors; I will never stray from them,” he said via Complex. “But whether it comes to soccer or football or basketball, I have a lot of friends that play for a lot of teams. I’m not team jumping. I’m a supportive friend.” Watch the Toronto kid host the ESPY Awards tonight (July 16) on ESPN at 9pm ET.
