Dropping a popular athlete’s name during a rap song has become a trend over the past few years. On Friday, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was the latest figure from the sports world to receive this honor.
Earlier today, Drake released his latest work, ‘Scary Hours 2.’ The most popular song from the three that went viral is ‘Lemmon Pepper Freestyle,’ which features Rick Ross.
There’s one line in that song that says “Patty Mahomes ’bout to fall short a couple hundred.” Clearly that caught the star quarterback’s attention.
Mahomes tweeted out a hilarious GIF of Drake to show his appreciation for being mentioned in ‘Lemmon Pepper Freestyle.’

This isn’t the first time that Drake and Mahomes were linked together. Last month, they appeared in a hilarious Super Bowl commercial for State Farm.
Mahomes wasn’t the only star athlete that received a shoutout in Drake’s newest song. The Canadian rapper also showed love to DeMar DeRozan.
DeRozan spent several years on the Raptors, Drake’s favorite sports team, before eventually getting shipped to the Spurs for Kawhi Leonard. Even though he’s no longer on the team, Drake dropped DeRozan’s name in the lyrics, saying “For real, and my city love me like DeMar DeRozan.”
