Drake considers himself a sports aficionado, so it should come as no big surprise that the rapper has been selected to be the host of this year’s ESPYs, which recognize athletic achievement on the professional level.
Drizzy announced the news on Twitter. “Honored to be this year’s @ESPYS host @espn 7.16.2014 #ESPYS #NWTS,” tweeted Drake on Wednesday. He joins such previous ESPY hosts as Justin Timberlake and Jamie Foxx.
Fans can expect the ESPYs to air live from Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 16, at 9 p.m. EST.
