Drake’s affinity for the University of Kentucky Wildcats has been advertised rather well. Kentucky coach John Calipari gave Drake a championship ring when the team won the NCAA National Championship in 2012, and we’ve already seen Drake in Kentucky practices and in the film room. With a combined record of 38-0 during regular season play, the Wildcats seemed to be a lock to take this year’s title. Drake apparently thought so as well, when he admitted to a friendly $6,000 wager against fellow rapper Game. The pair joked about Drake having to pay the bet after Kentucky surprisingly lost to Wisconsin Saturday night.
“Bet my bro @ChampagnePapi a humble $6,000 on the Wisconsin x Kentucky game,” Game wrote via Instagram. He chalked the win up to Wisconsin starting with a “W,” Saturday’s “blood moon” eclipse, and Wisconsin’s red uniforms.
“Great season for the squad,” Drake wrote, aligning his soon-to-be-former $6,000 under a UK basketball. “Incredible group of guys that worked extremely hard under the leadership of @ukcoachcalipari.”
Great season for the squad. Incredible group of guys that worked extremely hard under the leadership of @ukcoachcalipari. Congrats to the Badgers on a hard fought game and congrats to @losangelesconfidential for taking some money off my hands. Not many ppl can 😂 We'll be back next year!!! #BBN #CoachCal #BloodMoney #GameWithTheQuickComeUp #CalabasasRivalries
