(AllHipHop News) As the college basketball season comes to a close tonight with the NCAA championship game between Kansas and Kentucky in New Orleans, rappers across the globe made their picks for the big game.
Kentucky (37-2) is seeking its eighth national title and features a host of freshman and sophomore players that are poised to hit the NBA in the next year.
Kansas has a team of juniors and seniors ready to repeat their success from just a few years ago.
“I’m over in Europe…but its still GO BIG BLUE!!!!” Drake Tweeted from Europe supporting Kentucky.
In Vegas, Kentucky is currently favored by 6.5 points, in a matchup that features the two winningest programs in college basketball history.
Other rappers have made their picks as well.
Hip-Hop mogul Jay-Z appears to be supporting Kentucky, after he made a high-profile appearance behind the team’s bench last weekend in New Orleans.
Meanwhile, Asher Roth, who winded down his Final Four Tour on Saturday in New Orleans, is also rooting for Kentucky.
“I think Calipari finally wins a National Championship,” Asher Roth told Complex. “He’s not that bad of a guy. I don’t know why everybody hates on him. Sure, he’s on some gangster s###, but it’s real in the field. It’s real out here. You have to win some championships.”
Kentucky (#1) will take on Kansas (#2) tonight at 9:23PM on CBS.
