One of UK's most famous fans earns diploma

NEW YORK (WKYT) - One of UK's most famous fans has earned his high school diploma.

Rapper Drake tweeted, "One of the greatest feelings in my life. I have graduated high school."

He got his start playing a high school student on the series "Degrassi" at the age of 15, but since then, he's been juggling his music career, while also taking classes.

Drake has been a fixture in Lexington during UK basketball season the past few years.

He was even given an honorable national championship ring from Coach Cal, and was one of the coaches for the alumni game back in September.

He credits UK with inspiring him to finish school and get his diploma.
