In between spitting verses about Jennifer Lawrence and dissing Jay Z, rapper and noted basketball fanatic Drake found time to go to last night's Final Four and celebrate Kentucky's win over Wisconsin.

"My good friend is always there for us. Much love for @Drake," coach John Calipari posted to his Instagram after the Wildcats' 74-73 victory.

Drake's Kentucky fandom isn't quite as deep as, say, Ashley Judd's, but he does have some Kentucky history. Back in 2010, he befriended players John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins. Two years later, Drizzy received a custom championship ring from Coach Calipari after the Wildcats' 2012 title win.

Then again, it's hard not to call the man out for his bandwagon status when you see photos like this:

Even more priceless than Drake's locker room appearance was this reaction from Kentucky player Willie Cauley-Stein: "The way he talks is just, like, dang," said Cauley-Stein, after Drake gave a brief-post game speech. "He's really like this in real life. You think it's just a front in his songs, but he really talks like that in real life. He's just so smooth. You almost want to mirror yourself after it, it's so smooth. That's the way I feel."
