Drake Says He Looks Up To Jamie Foxx "In Every Aspect Of Life"

Drake explains why he decided to host the ESPYS.

Drake's choice to host the annual ESPYS this year may have come as a surprise to some, but the rapper says it's been a longstanding dream, at least in part thanks to actor-singer-comedian-host Jamie Foxx. 

"It's been a dream of mine for a long time," Drake says in an interview with ESPN. "I watched a guy that I look up to in every aspect of life, Jamie Foxx, do it. I always say, if I can follow in his footsteps, that'll be a great career for me. So, I was blessed with the opportunity to do it. SNL gave me the confidence to do it and here I am." 

The Toronto emcee also says he has plans for an ESPYS to remember. 

"The key is to be memorable, of course, especially in this age with everything going viral," Drake says.

In yesterday's announcement of the hosting duty, Drake also expressed his excitement for the event.

“This is an incredible opportunity for me to combine two of my biggest passions—sports and performing,” Drake said in a press release.
