Costumes, antics and Skylar Diggins are currently Drake’s biggest concerns. The rapper is set to host the 2014 ESPYs Awards Wednesday night, July 16th at 9:00 pm EST, and took time from the studio to chat with StyleBlazer. As the first major award show hosting gig for the Toronto talent, he was excited to talk about the show and how it all came together.
To be honest: We were looking for intel on what he is planning to wear, but we got a whole lot more from the conversation.
See what he had to say below!
On what he plans to wear to the show: “I’m not exactly sure what brands I’m going to be wearing. I’ll figure out the suit aspect probably next week and what particular designers I’ll be wearing. But I’m more excited about the costumes and the sort of athlete outfits that I’ll be draped in for you all to admire. I’m also excited to see what the athletes are wearing through the show because that can make for a joke in itself. I might just cut to somebody and I won’t have to say anything.”
On his past and present relationship status: “Well, actually, my status hasn’t changed, just to clear that up. I’ve always been out here coasting. But aside from that, the ESPYS is my main focus. When I commit to something, I don’t let my focus stray.”
On the big Lebron James decision to got back to the Cleveland Cavaliers: “For the last week and a half I’ve probably been bothering LeBron as much as the press has trying to figure out what his decision is going to be. I think if we can give out an award at the ESPYS for incredible essay writing, I would definitely love to present that to him because I think what he just did was Patriotic in its own way, was courageous and was just, to me, I think it’s going to be one of the most historic things of our generation. I’m just honored to know him and glad that I’ve gotten to, no pun intended, witness this moment for sure. I think it’s an incredible thing.”
