Drake Made Drake University's Dream Come True 'While They Were Sleeping'


Drake made good his promise to Drake University students when he said "I'mma pull up on ya" but the bad news is he did it while everyone was sleeping and off to dreamland.

Since 2009, Drake University has been putting out invitations and obvious feelers to Canadian rapper Drake to drop by and visit his namesake university. They've posted photos on Instagram with a photoshopped image of the rapper in the campus and all sorts of stuff to get his attention.

The campaign called #BringDraketoDrake began heating up again when the rapper announced in May that Des Moines is one of spots where he will bring his "Summer Sixteen" tour along with fellow rapper Future on October 4.

Days prior to the show, students made a video inviting the singer to drop by along. Even the Drake University president Marty Martin joined in the craze and issued his own invitation. Then, a day prior to the concert, they posted a photo of Drake smiling in front of the university logo on Instagram. The photo was captioned "this could be you tomorrow."The rapper did not say anything except the teaser that says he will pull up on them.

Hours before the concert, students gathered in the campus square in hopes to see Drake in person but the rapper did not show up. However, he donned the university jacket on stage and much later into the night, the rapper indeed dropped by at the university. He posted a black and white photo of him posing in the school ground. He then went straight into his private plane still wearing the university's jacket on.

"If you haven't heard, Drake the rapper did not visit campus today. But, our students still had a great day. #BringDraketoDrake lives on," said the caption on the university's official Instagram account.
