OVO Sound boss Drake is going to make history with the National Basketball Association. The league has nabbed Drizzy to host its first-ever NBA Awards on TNT showcase this summer.

According to reports, fans can expect the 6 God at the inaugural June event.

Turner and the NBA today announced Drake – platinum-selling recording artist and multi-faceted entertainer – as host of the first-ever NBA Awards on TNT, airing Monday, June 26, with coverage beginning at 9 p.m. ET. The inaugural event, held at Basketball City at Pier 36 in New York City, will be the NBA’s official annual award show to honor all of the league’s top performers on one night for the first time.

Three years ago, Drake made headlines after hosting the annual ESPYs Awards.


Earlier this month, Drizzy stayed busy invading the annual Coachella music festival.

Future brought out fellow Atlanta rappers Migos for a shouty rendition of their Donald Glover-endorsed hit Bad and Bougie, with beatmaker Zaytoven also in the mix. But that was not the extent of the surprises. When Drake appeared to perform their collaboration Jumpman, a cacophony of squeals erupted from the audience and bodies rushed towards the stage from all sides. Drake took the lead for three tracks – including ubiquitous radio hit Fake Love – and led the crowd in a sporting round of sing-along of the track before leaving the stage to Future, who delivered one more song as the crowd began to leave after Drake departed.

Last weekend, Drake jumped on Instagram with a pic from his unforgettable performance.
