Drake is having a hell of a year: He dropped If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late, released the short film Jungle, made out with Madonna, had a couple of songs leak, and even found some time to hit the gym. Now, he’s getting even more attention, thanks to a casual name-drop at the Scripps National Spelling Bee.
When asked to use the word “bacchius” in a sentence, official pronouncer Jacques Bailly hit the audience with a surprisingly hip reference: “Rumor has it that Drake’s next mixtape contains a rap in which every verse begins and ends with a bacchius.” Word got to Champagne Papi quick, as he posted a clip of the mention on his Instagram not too long after.
