Drake University Invites Rapper Drake to Tour Campus While in Des Moines for Concert
"We're confident he will enjoy the 'Views,'" the school's admissions office wrote in a statement
Drake will be in Des Moines for “Work” this fall – but local college Drake University is offering him something to do in his down time.
Friday afternoon, the rapper took to Twitter to announce 15 new tour dates, including one in the Iowa capital city, and the Des Moines university sharing the “Hotline Bling” artist’s name was quick to accommodate him.
Shortly after the Summer Sixteen Tour stop was announced, Drake University released a pun-filled press release inviting the Views star (né Aubrey Graham) to visit.
“Drake University students have lobbied for years to #BringDrakeToDrake, and we’re eager to welcome this talented singer and songwriter to our hometown. We would like to take this opportunity to invite Drizzy for a tour of campus, where we’re confident he will enjoy the ‘Views,'” reads the statement, which was paired with a photo of the campus’ oldest building, Old Main, featuring a “Parental Advisory: Explicit Content” stamp.
“Just as Mr. Graham has skyrocketed to the height of fame, our University started from the bottom in 1881 and rose to become one of the nation’s top-ranked private universities. Should he wish to take us up on our offer (because YOLO), Drake can reach our Admissions office at 1-800-44-DRAKE x3181. We ll be waiting for that hotline to bling!”
