He started from the bottom, now he’s in here tweeting at star high school basketball player Andrew Wiggins. Early this morning, rapper and friend to the Kentucky men’s basketball program Drake (aka Aubrey Graham) tweeted the following:
I only get like 15 min at the Jordan event this weekend but I always try to squeeze some more songs in! My brother playing too @22wiggins!

You’ll remember, of course, that Drake and Coach Calipari are close friends, and that Drake has received a 2012 UK Championship ring, coached at our alumni game, narrated TruTV’s basketball documentary on the Wildcats, and received his high school diploma about being inspired by Coach Cal and the Wildcats. And judging from the tweet above, it won’t be long before Drake is dropping his fellow Canadian’s name in some rap lyrics.
Come join #LaFamilia, Wiggins. You’ll be the “Best I Ever Had.” HYFR.
