Rapper Drake's new "Draft Day" track, released Tuesday to much fanfare, name drops former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel as well as Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence and Andrew Wiggins, the University of Kansas freshman who announced his NBA draft bid this week.

CBS Sports reports that Drake released the new track, "Draft Day," on SoundCloud yesterday to much fanfare, also giving shout-outs to Hunger Games' actress Jennifer Lawrence and Andrew Wiggins, the University of Kansas freshman who announced his NBA draft bid this week.

Manziel, the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy, has been hanging out and partying with Drake and other celebrities since the 2012 offseason — something some say might distract from his promising career — and the mention serves to further solidify what seems to be a blossoming "bromance" between the pair.

Even though Drake mentions and alludes to other public figures, Manziel is clearly the star of the song — after Drake himself, of course, who boasts prominently throughout — and the song's SoundCloud page features a picture of Manziel posing between two scantily-clad women who are each kissing his cheeks.

Speaking of women, Drake seems to be testing the waters in a possible bid for romance with Jennifer Lawrence. "I would die for my District / Jennifer Lawrence you can really get it / I mean for real, girl you know I had to do it for you," he raps.

The song features a sample of "Doo Wop (That Thing)" by Grammy Award-winner Lauryn Hill, and HipHopWire thinks Drake's line "Just hits, no misses / That's for the married folks," might be a dig at the domestication of Jay-Z and Kanye West, who are settling down with singer Beyonce and reality TV star Kim Kardashian, respectively.

Last but not least, Drake mentions major league baseball player Jose Canseco, saying "I play like I'm on 'roids."
