Exclusive! Jamie Foxx Raves About Drake’s ESPYs Performance: “Dude Is A Juggernaut”
Drake recently hosted the 2014 ESPY Awards and received rave reviews for his witty jokes and quick commentary. But there is one person that Drake needed to impress … Jamie Foxx.
Following the awards show, the Canadian rapper thanked Foxx for his friendship, mentorship and support … But what did Jamie really think of Drizzy’s hosting skills?
“What people don’t understand is like, Drake is the new prototype of the dude all guy,” Jamie told HipHollywood on Friday night. “When you look at his music and how he writes, when you look at what he did on the ESPYs, he floored people on Saturday Night Liven.”
“I’m looking forward to him making that transition into movies and everything else. The dude is a juggernaut. That’s my little brother and I’m rooting for him all the time.”
It’s also worth noting that Drake, Jamie and the ESPYS have all come full circle. During the 2003 ESPYs, Foxx dedicated an exclusive song to tennis pro, Serena Williams. “Can I Be Your Tennis Ball” was all about Jamie’s love and passion for Williams. The actor followed up the next year with a part 2.
Drake, who later went on to become good friends with Jamie and take the ESPYs stage just like the actor … Hooked up with Serena. It all came together perfectly.
