Drake is known to be a huge basketball fan, and he’s not afraid to represent the teams which he claims as his favorites.
The Canadian rapper is very visible at home games for the Toronto Raptors, which is his native land’s lone NBA franchise. But he’s also a big John Calipari and Kentucky basketball fan.
On Tuesday, Drake was invited to take a behind-the-scenes tour of the Texas basketball facility.
The rapper proudly wore his “Big Blue Nation” Kentucky basketball shirt as he roamed the halls, and he accented it with blue shorts for an “all Wildcats” look deep in the heart of Texas:

While it’s still good publicity for Shaka Smart’s program to have such a prominent personality showing interest in the program, one has to believe that the Longhorns coach was lamenting the fact that video was taken without him wearing the school’s signature burnt orange for the occasion.
Still, it appears as though a good time was had by all.
Here’s a hilarious video of the Longhorns women’s basketball team’s reaction to Drake roaming the halls:
Totally normal occurrence with @Drake on the 40 Acres.

They didn’t seem to care much that he was wearing the gear of another school.
