Andrew Wiggins’ ears must be burnin’ today. The KU basketball player just got name-dropped in Drake’s new track, “Draft Day.”
Drake surprised his fans with the song on Tuesday night. The track includes a litany of famous names, including Texas A quarterback and future pro Johnny Manziel and “Hunger Games” star Jennifer Lawrence.
notes that the song is going viral, probably because it includes a diss of Jay Z and Kanye West. (“Just hits, no misses/That's for the married folks.”)
The Canadian rapper dedicated the track, which samples Lauryn Hill’s 1998 “Doo-Wop (That Thing),” to his good friend Manziel, who gets mentioned first.
But Wiggins, who just declared for the NBA draft on Monday, scores the second shout-out. We can’t give you the NSFW lyric here, but you can hear it below.
Drake and Wiggins are both from the Toronto area, and our sports guys tell us that the two have apparently met once or twice.
