New York Giants Receiver Odell Beckham Jr. Is a Huge Drake Fan
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. is easily one of the most electric players in the NFL. The second-year player has already smashed records and is on pace to go down as one of the best pass catchers to ever suit up in the league. According to Beckham, who is known as much for his dancing as he is for his one-handed catches, he gets the inspiration for his outstanding play from Drake.
In a video interview with Rolling Stone as part of the publication's "The Die-Hards" series, Beckham gives props to Drake for being personable and a motivating force in his life.
"Whether he knows it or not, he motivates me," he said. "'Energy' is one of his songs I'll listen to before the game. [When] he's talking about, 'Got a lot of people trying to drain me of this energy,' he's talking about what's inside of him that makes him who he is. It does get draining, because you want to give that to people, you want to see other people be great as well. I'm waiting for somebody to come along and do some crazy catch!"
Will we see Beckham collab with Drake anytime soon? As the old adage goes, all rappers want to be athletes and all athletes want to be rappers.
