Per John Calipari's latest tweet.
@UKCoachCalipari We'll have 2 coaches for the teams & tonight I'm letting the #BBN know first that @Drake will be back in @Rupp_Arena as one of the coaches.
Maybe that's why he got a championship ring
Just something thats been on my mind since last yr when all the talk about Tee wanting to change the music at CWS.
If Drake and Jay-Z are truly huge UK fans why havent we asked them to come up with something just for UK to play at the games like something to run out to and big times of the game?
Cant tell me recruits wouldnt like that.
Just a thought
It's a great thought. You never know. That would take a lot of time and resources. Is Jay-Z a UK fan? I thought he was just stopping by.
Also, Coach Cal is great at what he does.
Well, considering Jay-Z comes up with everything off the top of his head then it should approximately take him 3 minutes or so for him to make that song. Plus the song the bball team came out to this year, Jay-Z song, the first couple of verses are about his trip to the UK locker room after the UK/UNC Elite Eight game.
If they get Kanye, it will be approximately 2.5 seconds. He just needs 5 words and then to repeat it over and over again.
Yeah, Kanye sucks. Anyone who says the Bible needs to be rewritten to include them should live in the nut house.
Here is a throwback pic of him reppin' a UK jersey way before the Cal era.

Josh it is so weird to see your full name on a message board. It's freaking me out.
Me too. I keep waiting for one of you to show up at my door. How confident are you that that is my real name...?
Julius Randle says that Drake is one of his top three favorite artists. Along with Meek Mill and Bob Ross. Ok, that was a joke. It was actually Jay-Z.
Maybe he was a big Gerald Fitch, Cliff Hawkins or Rajon Rondo fan haha. Can't quite see the number on the front. I've seen that picture before though.
Welcome to the site by the way. You should take advantage of our free offer:
Jay Z also talked about UK in one of his song when he got fined by the ncaa for 50,000 for going into uk's locker room... So I ball so hard ____ wanna fine me
But first ____ gotta find me
What’s 50 grand to a ______ like me
Had no idea that line was in reference to that incident.
Hadn't heard that, but it seems right. Nice catch.
I'm assuming Drake is a rapper? Doesn't mean much to me
He does if you're a 17-year-old.
It won't matter to a lot of the Big Blue Nation. It does matter to the 17 and 18 year olds that UK is recruiting. If that helps us get better players, then we win more games. If we win more, then THAT means something to UK basketball fans. So, in short, maybe he should mean something to you. ;)
No offense, but if he is a Kentucky basketball only fan, he is of no use to me. Tell him to go help Joker.
Will never understand some UK fans' bitterness and hypersensitivity toward basketball. Just won't.
it's not hypersensitivity. band wagon fans suck ass. bad. If you root for Kentucky, root for Kentucky. fans of only one sport at a university, and then like other schools for other sports, are the worst fans in the world. I have no use for them.
I can see your point to a degree. Some people are basketball people. Some people are football people. Some people are both. If he was actively supporting a different University's football program, then yea, bandwagon. I don't see any harm in rooting for just basketball if you have no interest in football though.
true, but I just have a feeling he is a USCal football fan. Maybe you guys can ask him sometime. lol
By the way, I was once one of those fans, rooting for UK in basketball and Michigan in football. I disgust myself for it. I guess that makes me a hippocrit, but I want to see people like that get fixed.
If Drake, Jay-Z, or Lebron even want to pretend like they give a crap about UK basketball and don't acknowledge the existence of any other program at the University you take it all day long. Their fan ship doesn't mean shit, but their name associated with the program is a big deal to recruits and positive attention by the media.
