Rumor has it, indeed.

When a contestant in the Scripps National Spelling Bee asked the questioner to use a difficult word in a sentence for him last night (May 28), he (along with the rest of the world) probably had no clue that Drake would end up in the mix.

During the annual event, a young contestant needed the pronouncer to use the word "bacchius" (defined as a metrical foot of three syllables, the first short, the other two long) in a sentence. And when he did, he named-dropped Drizzy.

"Rumor has it that Drake's next mixtape contains a rap in which every verse begins and ends with a bacchius," he said. The moment made the contestant chuckle before he got back down to business.

While Drake has yet to confirm that particular piece of gossip, he did post the moment to his Instagram.
