The 2014 ESPY Awards, Hosted by Drake
It's no secret that Drake is a big sports fan - he's pretty vocal about his loyalty to the Toronto Raptors, and he was a major supporter of the Kentucky Wildcats in the recent NCAA Championship. So it makes sense that the rapper would be picked to host ESPN's ESPY Awards July 16.
This will be the first time Drizzy has ever hosted this athletics-focused event, and he'll be in the presence of some major players that he's made friends with - like LeBron James, Demarcus Cousins and Terrence Ross, to name a few. The Source noted that Drake is known to give shout-outs to his favorite athletes in his songs, and some of them have basically become honorary OVO crew members. For example, he recently dedicated a "Draft Day" freestyle to college superstars and potential pros Johnny Manziel and Andrew Wiggins
He's following former hosts Justin Timberlake and Jamie Foxx, which are some pretty big shoes to fill. Still, if his stint hosting Saturday Night Live is any indication of his skills, he's probably going to kill it at the ESPYs.
So - will you be watching?
