Students at Drake (the university) in Des Moines, Iowa, have been trying for years to get Drake (the rapper) to visit their campus. Now, in a blessed twist of fate, it looks like they may be one step closer to making that dream a reality.
On Friday, Drake announced he and Future are bringing their co-headlining Summer Sixteen tour to Des Moines on Oct. 4. Drake University had the perfect response to the news, releasing a statement on its website that’s peppered with puns from the rapper’s lyrics.
“We would like to take this opportunity to invite Drizzy for a tour of campus, where we’re confident he will enjoy the ‘Views,’” the statement reads. “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,” the statement continued. “We’ll be waiting for that hotline to bling!”
Here’s hoping Drizzy comes through this fall!
