Rapper Drake recently revealed on a local Kentucky sports cable network that University of Kentucky head basketball coach John Calipari has inspired him to finish high school.
Drake broke the news on KSTV/CN2 this past weekend during an interview after coaching in a UK alumni basketball game.
Drake got to know Coach Cal during the summers in Memphis that he spent with his father while Calipari was coaching the Memphis basketball team. However, after Coach Cal moved to Kentucky and invited Drake to be a guest coach for a Midnight Madness intrasquad scrimmage back in 2009, Drake has felt like a part of the UK family. The feeling is clearly mutual, as shown by the customized championship ring that Kentucky gave Drake after winning the 2012 NCAA tournament.
Drake dropped out of high school in Toronto years ago, but says he will be graduating high school this month.
