Drake shouts out Johnny Manziel and Jennifer Lawrence on new track 'Draft Day': Hear it here
In addition to being a platinum rapper and former Canadian child star, Drake is also a huge sports fan. He was all over the NBA All-Star Game, and he once coached against Kentucky men’s basketball coach John Calipari during a scrimmage. Now he’s back with a new track called “Draft Day,” which shouts out Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Kansas superstar freshman hoopster Andrew Wiggins (both of whom expect to be drafted during the upcoming NFL and NBA drafts).
But honestly, the highlight of the song (which features a sample of Lauryn Hill’s classic track “Doo Wop (That Thing)”) is the instant-classic lyric “On some Hunger Games s—/ I would die for my District/ Jennifer Lawrence, you can really get it.” If Lawrence wants to cash that check, she should know that Amanda Bynes might have something to say about it.
Check out “Draft Day” below, and be sure to stick around all the way to the end for a mash-up of Oklahoma State University football coach Mike Gundy’s legendary press conference meltdown and University of Colorado football coach Dan Hawkins’ rant.
