UK players won't be getting any more IG pics with champagnepapi.
For reasons that aren't totally clear, Drake is a massive fan of Kentucky Wildcats' basketball. The team has welcomed his constant support, and in late 2014, coach Calipari even let him participate in the pre-game warm up, which, of course, only led to one of the most infamous airballs of all time. Though there are likely many benefits to having a superstar musician as a die-hard fan, the Wildcats might want to distance themselves from Drizzy's image, as it's been reported that he earned the team an NCAA violation. This is the second violation the team has suffered because of matters involving Drake.
In October 2015, the university self-reported an incident involving Drake and point guard Tyler Ulis, reports Kentucky.com. The incident in question occurred earlier in the year, in May, when Ulis attended a Drake concert in Chicago, and during an after-party, Drake's management recognized the UK guard and invited him to meet with the Toronto rapper.
The report claims Ulis' meeting with Drake only lasted about three or four minutes. During that time, Ulis was able to get a picture with the 6 God, which he posted to his Instagram.
The short meet and greet constituted "preferential treatment," according to the university's report, and was classified as a "Level III violation," which is defined as one that is "isolated or limited in nature."
A year before, Drake was part of a Level III violation for a similar situation. After attending Big Blue Madness 2014 (where the airball took place), Drake posed for pictures with some UK players as well as then recruit Charles Matthews. That incident prompted the university's compliance office to send Drake a cease-and-desist letter in July 2015.
