Kentucky superfan Drake wears a Memphis shirt to the dentist


Kentucky superfan Drake turned to the dark side during a recent trip to the dentist.

According to a Drake fan page on Twitter, Drizzy Source, the four-time Grammy Award winner was seen sporting a Memphis Tigers t-shirt out in public.

Not long after, John Calipari’s newest rival on the recruiting trail, Penny Hardaway, found the picture and made sure to post it on his Twitter feed.

Drake has been involved with Kentucky basketball since 2010, coming to Lexington for various events such as the UK Alumni Game and Big Blue Madness on two separate occasions, along with attending NCAA Tournament games.

At one point, he was tucked in DeMarcus Cousins’ arm with pure bliss:

He even gave a motivational speech to the team following their Final Four victory over Wisconsin in 2014:

Above all else, he made a Rick Pitino joke in a recent song, writing: “Louisville hush money for my young gunners. Rick Pitino, I take them to strip clubs and casinos.”

Now, he’s sporting the wrong team.

You’re better than this, Drake.

    Drake is all about Drake’s wallet. Drake makes decisions based on what will make his member and wallet thrive. Nothing wrong with that; just pointing out a fact which makes Drake a Promo-sexual.

    1. Soylentbeans

      Exactly. I still think cal paid him to be around the program anyway.

    2. The Original WTF Guy

      Drake is a giant super douchebag. Remember that time he said he was going to come back to UK and do a free concert for the students? And then never did?

      And beyond that his “music” is horrible. He’s not a hair on a pimple on the ass of Sturgill, Tyler, Stapleton, or any number of other actual KY artists. I know the staff at KSR fanboys this guy to death, but can we please never have to hear about this clown again?

      Hell, you could name a dozen others; my morning jacket, wax fang (unreal psychedelic band), Dwight Freaking Yoakam, the legend that is Sam Bush, even Nappy Roots, Joan Osborne, and The Judds, I think, are far superior musicians and artists to Drake.

      But…that’s just music talk. Who gives a rat’s butt what anyone wears? Not everyone in the world has headstrong supporters. For every UK, dook, unc, KU, Yankees, Barcelona, Chelsea, etc diehard fan, there’s a dozen people that just like sports and root for the best team at any particular point.

      agreed 100 percent

    Yeah, I don’t think many people still believe Drake is “all Kentucky”.
    His collegiate wardrobe has grown quite extensive.

      Next flight Drake’s on with CAL?

      Vegas says he’s wearing a “Detroit Mercy” Jersey.

      With Dickie V. ‘servicing’.

  3. TOMCATS1990

    Flavor of the month is his team

    Kentucky Superman? No way.

      Superfan damn it

  5. scwhite9

    He wore it to the dentist. That means it is a crappy shirt – he doesn’t mind bleeding on his or drooling on it. Makes sense.

  6. 4everUKblue

    I’ll be ok if Drake is never a UK fan again after watching him on the sidelines of the Raptors games.

  7. bigbluejon

    Drake is a hoe. Plain and simple

  8. Swizzle

    The guy is a douche, can we move on please?

  9. njcat54

    KY Superfan? Jeez

    Drake is what I would describe as a bandwagon fan. He stays around when things are going great, but goes elsewhere when fortunes change. Memphis is the flavor of the month. He will hobnob with them and, when they begin to falter, he will take his celebrity and support to the next “it” program. It’s all good, he brought some glitter to our program and was useful from a recruiting standpoint. No point in calling him names, guys, he just lacks loyalty and sincerity. There is an abundance of that in the entertainment industry.

    1. mashman 93

      nailed it

    2. UKFanSC

      Yep

  11. KYWildCatsFan

    Drake was never a fan, especially a damn “super fan”. We never claimed him either.

  12. michaelb

    My feelings are not hurt by ths

    Band wagon jumper!

    1. NcCatFan75

      Laj22- If he were a band wagon jumper, why would he be cheering for Memphis. Even with their class, they aren’t going to be more than a flash in the pan IF that.

  14. Laj22

    Oh yeah Memphis will be a bust!

  15. Thetruthshallsetbennyfree

    LET MEMPHIS AND IT’S BAG MAN HAVE THE CURSE!

  16. ohiokatfan

    Wow. Thanks for this great update. Anyone know what shirt Flavor Flav wore to the post office yesterday? I can’t find that info anywhere.

  17. Mino Slick Foooooo

    Y’all do know Drake’s dad is from Memphis & he spent his summers there growing up

  18. RealCatsFan

    Meh. It is what it is. I think VirginiaCat said it best. No need for us to get bent out of shape and hurl insults – that only makes us look like a bunch of spurned teenybopper girls.

  19. JT55

    Does anyone really care? Cal isn’t landing too 10 talent too often anyways.

    1. UMMike

      I guess no one here realizes Drake has a pretty deep Memphis connection. His father was born, raised and lives in Memphis. Nothing wrong with a shout out to his roots. A helluva lot deeper roots than he’s got in Lexington.
