In a meaningful (and inspirational) post after celebrating his birthday ,Drake went down memory lane to a time when he wasn’t one of the world's most famous rappers. He opened up about how he used to struggle and that he went to big lengths to appear rich. Drake revealed: “In 2007 we used to finesse this Rolls Royce Phantom rental to convince people in the city we were destined to make it. I used to scrape together 5k a month somehow to keep up appearances.”
He proceeded to enumerate all the things that he and his close friends did when they rented the Phantom and even drove it to Montreal for his “first show ever.”
Drake also shared that his friend, Future the Prince, has tracked down “the exact car I use to stress over” and gifted it to him. Now he is the owner of the luxury sedan that he couldn't afford back then. He added: “Manifestation complete.”
During his lengthy message, Drizzy also shared he doesn’t condone or recommend “putting yourself in financial trouble for material things I realize now that this was just my way of extreme manifesting. I needed to see it and feel it and have it to believe that I could see and feel and have anything I wanted.”
reflects on getting the same Rolls Royce he used to flex before he was famous 🙏
“Back in 2007 we used to finesse this Rolls Royce Phantom rental to convince people in the city we were destined to make it,” Drake wrote in the caption. “I used to scrape together 5k a month somehow to keep up appearances.
“We whipped this to Ottawa to see @belly and @cashxo and to Montreal for my first show ever. I used to pick up @ovoniko and roll every day or wait outside @nebzilla class for her. Park outside 15 Fort York while me and @ovo40 and @oliverelkhatib would be upstairs cooking what would eventually becomeSo Far Gone.”
Drake celebrated his 35th birthday being extra, just like he always is. With a net worth of roughly $180 million and a birthday coming right before Halloween, he combined his wealth and dressing up with aNarcos-themed party. Of course, several other A-listers like Offset, Future, French Montana, Jack Harlow, Larsa Pippen, Kawhi Leonard, Luka Sabbat, 24kGoldn, and many more of his famous friends were among the attendees.
Happy birthday, Drake! That’s quite a birthday present, both sentimental and, why not, extremely useful.
