Young Money’s Drake has finally come forward to clear the air on appearing to represent the UConn Huskies after watching his Kentucky Wildcats lose in the NCAA championship game earlier this week.
According to Drizzy, the media and fans were misled by the shirt he rocked following Monday’s game.
“I wanna clear something up because there was this thing where I had took a picture with Rip Hamilton and he was wearing a UConn shirt. I was wearing a James Young Kentucky shirt but the James Young logo looks like a ‘U.’ Just understand I was ‘not’ wearing a UConn shirt. I’m about the institution when it comes to college. I support my Wildcats.” (ESPN)
The rap star managed to put his feelings away and posed next to former UConn champion Richard Hamilton following Monday night’s match.
Longtime Canadian Drake made his allegiance to the University of Kentucky well known on Saturday, when he popped into the Wildcats locker room to celebrate their Final Four victory. Do you doubt Drake’s commitment to the team? He’s been a fan always. Always is forever, you guys. Naturally, the recording artist formerly known as Aubrey Graham was not in the highest of spirits when his beloved Wildcats fell to Connecticut Monday night. Fortunately, UConn alum Rip Hamilton was there to lift his spirits. (USA Today)
Much like what happened to President Barack Obama, someone running the UConn Basketball Twitter account took a direct shot at Drizzy.
The UConn Twitter account, which earlier this tournament offered President Barack Obama a spot on the bandwagon after the Huskies beat his national champion pick, Michigan State, in the Elite 8, decided to kick Drake while he was down. “Imma just hand @Drake a business card and say… We Made It ” (College Basketball Talk)
Drizzy popped up into the Wildcats locker room following their big Final Four win last weekend.
After Kentucky won on a late shot to advance to the championship game, Drake was in the locker room with the Wildcats. “That’s great. He just told us to stay confident, and it’s on us now,” said Andrew Harrison, who had the pass to his freshman twin brother for the game-winning shot. “Just keep playing and don’t be satisfied, so that was exciting for all of us.” (Fox News)
