Drake to host the 2014 ESPY Awards

on April 09, 2014, 1:56pm

Drake is a hardcore sports fan, who recently proved his comedic chops as host of Saturday Night Live. So, it’s only logical that he’s been tapped to host ESPN’s annual awards show the ESPYS. Right? Right.

This year’s gala takes place at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater on July 16th. A number of professional athletes will be in attendance, providing Drizzy with plenty of opportunities to get his picture taken.

Of course, Drake’s fandom extends beyond selfies. When not recording new music, he serves as the Toronto Raptors’ Global Ambassador, which comes with an array of responsibilities. Those tasks include but are not limited to redesigning the team’s jerseys and serving as a prop at the NBA Dunk Contest.
