After seeing the job that rapper, Drake did on Saturday Night Live, I guess ESPN decided that he would be the perfect choice to host their annual award show, the ESPYs.
According to TMZ “Sources connected to the situation tell us … Drake was extremely passionate about hosting the awards show—and during talks with producers, he pointed to his widely praised performance on “Saturday Night Live” as proof he could get the job done well.”
Drake is a huge sports fan. He has been working with his hometown, Toronto Raptors on re-branding their franchise to give it a more youthful and trendy appeal. You can always spot Drake hanging with athletes or giving them shout-outs in his songs, like he did for Texas A&M QB, Johnny Manizel. Recently Drake jumped on the bandwagon for the Kentucky Wildcats as they made their way to play in the NCAA Championship, only to fall to the University of Connecticut Huskies.
Drake has a huge appeal that crosses color and age lines. What a great choice, looking forward to the ESPYs which will air on ESPN on July 16th.
