John Calipari Tweets About Drake, Says He's Still Loved and Welcomed At Kentucky

Don't worry, Drake, you're still loved by your favorite college basketball program. 

Earlier today, it was reported that Kentucky had to self-report an NCAA violation caused by the hip-hop star, who took photos with recruits during the Wildcats' 2014 Big Blue Madness. Kentucky issued a cease-and-desist letter to Drake, asking him to refrain from interacting with potential student-athletes. 

John Calipari has tweeted in response to the story, saying there are "no issues" with Drake and Kentucky. Drake, expected to perform at this year's Big Blue Madness, is still welcomed on campus. 

">@Drake took pics with fans as well as a couple guys as as he was leaving the arena after Madness.
