Get ready to honor some sportsball with Drake — the rapper is coming to the ESPYs.
In a tweet from the rapper, he announced he’ll be the host at this year’s ESPYs, a sports award ceremony tendered yearly by ESPN. He tweeted that he was “honored” to accept the spot at the helm of this year’s awards.[tweet https://twitter.com/Drake/status/453947993696137217]
Drake should be no stranger to many diehard sports fans; aside from his music, it’s been well-publicized that the rapper is a huge fan of his hometown Toronto Raptors (more like Rappers, amirite? Nah?), particularly as the franchise’s global ambassador as appointed at the beginning of this regular season.
