Looks like Drake's sports antics are paying off as the Toronto rapper just announced he'll be hosting the 2014 Espy Awards. Unveiling the news via Instagram, Drizzy seems pretty hyped about his approaching gig amidst all the recent banter.

Ironically, Drake has been catching a lot of heat from the sports world as many are calling the rapper out for his constant team hopping. With Drake being a known Kentucky basketball fan, social media exploded after  pictures surfaced with Drake and the opposing team following UCONN’s win over Kentucky in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship.

The ESPY Awards goes down on July 16 at 9pm on ESPN.
