Drake calls out Rick Pitino in song on new al­bum

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SPORTS -

Rap­per Drake, a well-known Ken­tucky Wild­cats fan, calls out for­mer Louisville coach Rick Pitino in a song on his new record.

Drake re­leased his lat­est al­bum “Scor­pi­ons” on Thurs­day. It con­tains a song ti­tled “San­dra’s Rose,” in which Drake raps about “Louisville hush money for my young gun­ners, Rick Pitino, I take them to strip clubs and casi­nos.”

Pitino was fired by Louisville in Oc­to­ber 2017, three weeks after the school ac­knowl­edged that its men’s bas­ket­ball pro­gram was be­ing in­ves­ti­gated as part of a fed­eral cor­rup­tion probe.

Pitino spent 16 sea­sons with the Car­di­nals. But his ten­ure was tar­nished by sev­eral em­bar­rass­ing of­f­court in­ci­dents, in­clud­ing an es­cort scan­dal that re­sulted in NCAA sanc­tions cul­mi­nat­ing in hav­ing the Car­di­nals va­cate 123 wins and their 2013 na­tional cham­pi­onship and 2012 Fi­nal Four ban­ners.
