Drake, Justin Timberlake to attend Memphis Madness

Penny Hardaway’s first Memphis Madness is going to be a star-studded event.

According to Jason Smith of the “Jason & John Show,” the Memphis Madness guest list includes Drake and Justin Timberlake, two of the biggest stars on the planet. Yo Gotti, Moneybagg Yo, and Blocboy JB will also be in attendance, although they’re not nearly at the level of stardom of Drake and JT.

Kentucky target James Wiseman headlines the list of recruits who are expected to attend.

As you know, Drake has attended Kentucky’s Big Blue Madness on more than one occasion in the past, and Timberlake just performed in Rupp Arena last week.

Memphis Madness is set for Thursday, October 4.

I hope it sucks.

    Drake will be back all-in on UK as soon as Memphis starts to tank. JT I get, since that’s his hometown school.

    All that crap at midnight madness is stupid. And I think it’s stupid when they do it at Rupp as well

      He’s the one that doesn’t drink much – must be in the early steps of Formation – hasn’t heard of Jameson’s yet.

    If Penny Hardaway had the Memphis Basketball team on Tinder the profile would read: National Champion Contender, Worldclass Facilities, Great Town, Rich Basketball Tradition, and Da Stop of Future NBA players. Once the season starts or the date begins, you find out they may make the NIT, play 2nd fiddle to the Grizzlies, have less than 8,000/avg. fans in the stands and are future home to bench G Leaguers.

    To me, this is not good news. The pendulum of hip might now be bending Memphis’ way.
    No worries tho, as we will end up with the true dogs of the class anyways. Go CATS!!

    If any of you all were under the misconception that Drake was a real Kentucky fan, let this lay that notion to rest.

    Memphis can keep Drake. He switches teams all the time, and he makes shit music. He’s also a pedophile lol

    F&ck Drake.….and the horse he rode in on.

  19. I don’t give a rip about Drake…unless his presence helps recruiting. But if he’s as much a Wildcat as claims, why would he do this?

    Drake is a bandwagon fan….always has been.

    I’m gonna assume they offered him a large chunk of change and did it specifically to mess with BBN. In any case, Drake has proven he may rock Kentucky blue but does not bleed blue.

    I hope all you guys do realize Drake isn’t being a bandwagon fan smh lol. His dad, & that side of the family is all actually from Memphis. So if you think abt it, it does make sense to support.
