Drake Referenced At The National Spelling Bee
The sentence he was given by Jacques Bailly, the contest's official pronouncer, a middle age man with a very soothing voice happened to evoke Drizzy's name.
"Rumor has it that Drake's next mixtape contains a rap in which every verse begins and ends with a bacchius," he said. Jaiswal got a good chuckle out of it, but unfortunately, Drake wasn't enough of a clue to help the kid do the spelling. He still needed to know the definition of the word, which is "a foot of three syllables that in quantitative meter consists of one short syllable followed by two long ones, and that in accentual meter consists of one unstressed syllable followed by two stressed ones."
Drake was pretty flattered by the whole thing and even posted a clip of it, but did not confirm whether he does end his verses with a bacchius. Read more and watch the clip here.
