Drake has spent 9 AM in Dallas, 5 AM in Toronto and most memorably, Midnight Madness at Kentucky. Soon, North America’s most prominent wheelchair basketball player turned Grammy winning lyricist will combine his two loves, Kentucky hoops and narrating.
According to The Grio, Drake will become the voice of Kentucky hoops for an upcoming documentary.
Drake is showcasing his love for the Kentucky Wildcats basketball by narrating TruTV’s “Bluegrass Kingdom: The Gospel of Kentucky Basketball.” The documentary will showcase the university’s famed basketball program. In addition to Drake’s narration, the program will feature former players and coaches, as well as notable alumni.
Drake and Calipari are a match made in heaven. Calipari has no problem with guiding hoop phenoms to the NBA lottery while Drake is himself, a preps-to-pros phenom, who dropped out of high school.
