Drake is in the building. Obviously our girls played it cool #FanGirls (video courtesy of Emily Johnson)
Drake gets criticized for being a bandwagon fan, but he proved his loyalty to the Kentucky Wildcats today (July 20). The Toronto rapper is currently in Austin for the beginning of his Summer Sixteen Tour and got to tour the facilities at the University of Texas. But instead wearing Texas gear or some clothes unaffiliated to any team, Drake showed up rocking a Kentucky outfit.
The “One Dance” artist is shown wearing a Big Blue Nation t-shirt and matching shorts in the above video filmed by the University of Texas women’s basketball team. Drake understandably heard some complaints for coming through in Kentucky gear. While the Texas women’s basketball team may have played it cool when Drizzy walked through the hall, a follow-up video showed them losing their minds at being in the presence of the star.
Drake caught plenty of flack on social media for his apparel choice. One of those included Texas men’s basketball player Tevin Mack who threw a playful jab at the OVO Sound founder.
“My mans drake came thru and showed us some love,” Mack wrote. “The UK gear gotta go tho 😒😂😂.”
The playful taunts Drake received for wearing the Kentucky gear are nothing compared to relentless shots Joe Budden has been delivering of late. The beef has mostly been one-sided with Budden dropping multiple disses. Drake seemed to respond on the French Montana single “No Shopping, but Montana claims that was not the case.

I wouldn't be offended with Drake wearing Kentucky gear to Texas if he wasn't such a bandwagoner with everyone else! #EmbraceTheBurntOrange
