Before he was a Grammy-winning rapper, Drake played a high school student in the Canadian show Degrassi. Now, he’s been invited to a different campus.
On Friday, the rapper announced new tour dates that include a stop in Des Moines, Iowa, which just so happens to be home to Drake University. The college celebrated by releasing a pun-filled press release inviting Drake to visit the campus.
“Drake University students have lobbied for years to #BringDrakeToDrake, and we’re eager to welcome this talented singer and songwriter to our hometown. We would like to take this opportunity to invite Drizzy for a tour of campus, where we’re confident he will enjoy the Views,” reads the statement. “Just as Mr. Graham has skyrocketed to the height of fame, our University started from the bottom in 1881 and rose to become one of the nation’s top-ranked private universities. Should he wish to take us up on our offer (because YOLO), Drake can reach our Admissions office at 1-800-44-DRAKE x3181. We’ll be waiting for that hotline to bling!”
The Oct. 4 Des Moines concert is part of the upcoming Summer Sixteen Tour with Drake, recently scored his first No. 1 hit, and Future. The tour kicks off July 20 in Austin, Texas.
