Drake will host the ESPYs.

The sports-loving rapper announced the news on Wednesday, tweeting, “Honored to be this year’s @ESPYS hot.”

ESPN’s annual celebration of the year in athletics will take place on July 16 at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles.

Jon Hamm hosted last year’s awards.

According to reports, Drake’s recent “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig helped him secure the ESPYs job.
