Canadian rapper Drake dropped out of Toronto’s Forest Hill Collegiate Institute in order to pursue a career in the entertainment industry almost 10 years ago.
Now, he credits Kentucky coach John Calipari with inspiring him to finish his high school education.
“When Coach Cal asked me to come out here for the first Midnight Madness (in 2009), it just really gave me … a sense of school, a sense of love, a sense of belonging to something. That’s why I feel like I belong to the UK family. That’s why I’m graduating high school this month. I’m definitely inspired by UK.”
