Drake has been out and about recently and has been receiving a lot of attention outside of music.
Recently he hosted Saturday Night Live and also made news for his post game selfie with UConn team personnel after their National Championship victory in the NCAA Tournament. Now it looks like the Toronto native is set to host the ESPYs, something he says has always been his dream.
“It’s been a dream of mine for a long time,” Drake told the panel of ESPN’s NBA Countdown. “I watch a guy that I look up to in every aspect of life–Jamie Foxx do it and I always say if I can follow in his footsteps, that’ll be a great career for me so I was blessed with the opportunity to do it. SNL gave me the confidence to do it and here I am.”
Drake also talked about how he merges music and sports, the harmony of the two in his life and career.
“I obviously am a part of the music world but, I even said in one of my raps, ‘Sports and music are so synonymous.’ And that’s true,” he said. “I’ve got a lot of friends that play for a lot of different teams, and yeah I’m just excited to see those guys in one room, poke a little fun, in a classy way of course but to see those guys laugh it’ll be great.”
