Last week, Drake was a special guest on ESPN’s “Highly Questionable“ TV show to chat with Dan Le Batard, Bomani Jones, and Gonzalo Le Batard.
Above, Drizzy talks about what it was like recording his Nothing Was The Same album in Marvin’s Room (Marvin Gaye’s studio), if he ever regrets getting too personal in his music, the story of being rejected access to Miami Heat’s locker room after the NBA Finals, and something that we don’t already know about LeBron James and Johnny Manziel.
In related news, you can watch Drizzy Drake speak to ESPN FC after the jump below about how he got into football/soccer, hanging around with professional players, and more all while playing a game of FIFA 14.
Earlier this week, Drake went on a promo run around New York City promoting his Nothing Was The Same album and the FIFA 14 video game. In the clip above, you can watch Drizzy talking to fans, playing soccer/football with them out on the field as well as on a console, and handing out free copies of FIFA 14.
Drizzy Drake also attended the FIFA 14 launch party at the Union Square Ballroom were he played professional soccer player Tim Cahill in a game of FIFA. In the end, he lost 3-2 to Cahill, but it was still a close game!
You can watch a 10 minute recap from Drake and Tim‘s FIFA 14 match below.
Before playing professional football/soccer player Tim Cahill in a game of FIFA 14 on September 23rd in New York City, Drake chopped it up with Maxim for an interview.
Drizzy spoke about Tim Cahill, playing the video game FIFA, which soccer team he supports, his Nothing Was The Same album, writing songs for other music artists, acting, and more. He also said mentioned that Mario Balotelli is the “2Pac of soccer”.
You can read their full interview after the jump below!
In the video above, you can watch Drake chat about his love for FIFA and the developers behind the game at Electronic Arts’ 2013 E3 press conference in Los Angeles, California. Drizzy also introduces the upcoming FIFA 14 game before leaving the stage.
If you didn’t already know, Drizzy Drake and Lil Wayne appeared in the FIFA 12 commercial back in 2012!
It’s great to see Drake is a fan of Football, or Soccer as you may call it. In this post, you can view some photos of Drizzy having a kick around with the Chelsea FC squad and a video of him talking to ChelseaTV after their game with Benfica earlier in the week at Stamford Bridge. Didier Drogba joins Drake during his interview and Drizzy calls Drogba his favourite player in the world.
Above, you can watch some footage of Drake and his OVO crew arriving to Manchester City‘s Etihad Stadium this afternoon in Manchester, England. I guess this means Drizzy isn’t a hardcore Manchester Unitedsupporter if he is going watching their rivals play.
Man City played Sunderland today and the game finished 3-3, which is more great news for Man Utd fans as MUFC are currently top of the Premier League with not many games left to play!
Above, you can watch a video of when Drake met Manchester United FC’s Rio Ferdinand, courtesy of SoulCulture. They talk about music, sportsmanship, teamwork, and more.
“I have a line on my album where I say, ‘Sports and music are so synonymous, ’cause we wanna be them and they wanna be us’… I feel that way – if I couldn’t rap, I would wanna be here in this building,” visiting rap star Drake tells 4nB from the Manchester United team’s training grounds [referring to the song, "Thank Me Now"], whilst on the UK leg of his Lightdreams & Nightmares tour.
“I feel the same way,” UK football star Rio Ferdinand nods in agreement, as the pair comment on the similarities between the lifestyles of pop stars and sporting stars when it comes to performing, motivation, showmanship, team spirit and female attention.
