Over the weekend, Drake served as one of the head coaches for the University of Kentucky's alumni basketball game. For whatever reason, Drizzy has become a part of the UK program over the course of the last few years—and he even managed to snag a 2012 National Championship ring as a part of the relationship. But, after the game, he revealed that he's about to receive something that's even more valuable to him as a result of his connection to the Wildcats: his high school diploma.

"I actually dropped out of high school," he told CN2 in Kentucky. "I never really got, like, a great school experience. When coach [John Calipari] asked me to come out here for the first Midnight Madness, 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."

Good for Drizzy. And for Coach Cal. With Drake singing the praises of the UK program, we can't imagine any 17 or 18-year-old kid turning down a scholarship offer from him.
