DRAKE TO GRADUATE FROM HIGH SCHOOL THIS MONTH…
Canadian rapper, Drake decided to drop out of high school as a teenager to follow a career in music, but this summer the 25-year-old rapper went back for his paper and is set to graduate this month. During an interview with Kentucky’s cn|2, Drake said University of Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari inspired him to pursue his high school diploma, a task that was well within his reach since he was only a credit away from achieving his goal.
According to him, “When Coach Cal asked me to come here for the first Midnight Madness, it just really gave me…it gave me a sense of school, a sense of love, a sense of belonging to something, and so, you know, that’s why I feel like I belong to the UK family and that’s why I’m graduating high school this month.”
Drake got choice seats during the basketball team’s NCAA tournament in 2010 and coached a squad during alumni games in 2009 and 2012. Who knows maybe he could consider college in Kentucky…. Giztzzz… madetv!
