Drake on Tuesday night performed in Des Moines, Iowa, during the fall run of this Summer Sixteen tour. That happens to be in the same town as Drake University, a private school founded in 1881.

This year students rallied around the #BringDraketoDrake hashtag. 

Even school officials invited the rapper to campus, targeting Tuesday’s tour date.

“We would like to take this opportunity to invite Drizzy for a tour of campus, where we’re confident he will enjoy the ‘Views,’” the university wrote in a statement. “We’ll be waiting for that hotline to bling!”

Hey, at least they follow each other on Instagram. That’s just respect.
