21 Savage recently received a Ferrari as a birthday gift for his 24th birthday, and the giver was none other than Drake. Champagne papi is known for being very generous to his friends and those close to the Toronto rapper, but this dope birthday gift is definitely over the top. A photo of the Ferrari with the drop top was posted on Instagram by 21 Savage, along with the caption “bday gift from @champagnepapi.” In the last week Savage has shown up in more than one collab, and the young rapper from Atlanta has been busy proving his worth. One of the recent collabs called Sneakin was with Drizzy, and another titled Offended was with Meek Mill.
The album 21 Savage recently dropped with Metro Boomin called Savage Model offers 9 tracks and has a play time of just over 30 minutes. Drake fans are feeling a lot of jealousy right now. Who wouldn’t want to be friends with a man who buys his buds a Ferrari to say Happy Birthday?
Drake has revealed dates set for UK and Europe dates for the 2017 Boy Meets World Tour, and information about ticket presale codes can be found online. When Drizzy went on social media he announced the 2 month tour dates, with concerts scheduled for Amsterdam, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, France, Glasgow, London, Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, Dublin, and Birmingham. So far no word on any opening acts but with the Toronto rapper’s history fans are expecting a number of surprise guests to drop in. The presale code for Live Nation is DANCE, and the app password for LN Mobile is COVERT.
Alexis Gomez gave her daughter exactly what the 6 year old wanted, a Drake inspired birthday party, and the story went viral. Eventually Drizzy caught wind of the event and gave the little girl an extra special surprise, a message and the promise of a special gift from the Toronto rapper himself. Drake responded to the news with the message “OVO 12’s for her ASAP.” The OVO 12s are the Air Jordan shoes that ChampagnePapi designed himself and this makes the gift extra special. Fans were quick to comment, and some admitted being jealous of the attention that the child received from Drake.
The party followed the Drake theme right down to an OVO owl cake, money on the tables, Worst Behavior posters, and even a gold chain that the birthday girl was wearing. Gomez has to be one of the coolest moms in the world and the attention that her daughter has received is enormous. So far there has been no word on exactly when the shoes will arrive but few doubt that Drake will follow through on his promise to the little girl.
Fans never know exactly who will pop out next at a Drake concert, and his Summer Sixteen Tour has been loaded with surprise guests and celebrity appearances. On Tuesday night the Summer Sixteen Tour show took place at the Bay Area’s Oracle Arena and fans had a real treat. Since the Toronto rapper is a big fan of the Golden State Warriors many wondered if it would be Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, or another player to grace the stage this night.
Kevin Durant showed up without the Splash Brothers but the crowd was fine with one celebrity when it was KD. As Drizzy welcomed Durant to the stage he told the crowd “I want you to make some noise for my brother Trey 5, Kevin Durant,” Drake yelled. “I told you I was getting some big rings this year, boy. Oracle Arena, make some noise for my brother one time! Am I allowed to keep going? It’s your call. Let’s go, for the Bay tonight.” A video clip of the moment can be found below.
The marching band for Southern University recently performed Drake’s Controlla, and the band did it very well. Drizzy can rest assured that he is one of the most popular musical artists right now and that his album Views has been widely recognized. The band, also frequently called the Human Jukebox, added some saxophone and trumpets to the hit track and the performance was flawless.
The choreography of the Dancing Dolls was impeccable and the Toronto rapper would be proud of their glove covered jazz hands. Drizzy is not the only star whose music has been performed by the marching band either. Father Stretch My Hands by Kanye West, Run This Town by Jay Z, and I Want It That Way by the Backstreet Boys have been performed in the past. These band members show that they definitely have style.
Drake recently showed how much he cares about his goddaughter when he showed up for her college volleyball game, even giving the team a pep talk in the locker room before the game started. The photos show Ashley Murray proudly posing with her team and her godfather Drizzy, and all of the players are beaming with excitement.
As the Toronto Raptors ambassador it is no secret that the Toronto rapper enjoys sports, and since he was in Cali for his Summer Sixteen tour he took a little time off to show his support for Ashley. Under the photo Ashley posted “There’s nothing more powerful than when someone shares their blessings. When they show up for you, you show out for them. Thank you for coming to support me and my team. Love you always. Best Godfather ever.”
When word spread that Drake was going to be attending the event the team saw the largest crowd ever at the game. As a starting player Ashley has a lot invested, and she played her best game all year while her proud godfather watched. Long Beach State stomped Loyola Marymount University with a final score of 3-0 and Champagne Papi celebrated with the team after the game was over.
Drake is scheduled to make a live appearance on Saturday Night Live on Saturday, May 14, 2016, and the line started forming days in advance as fans wanted to be sure that they had a chance to see Drizzy act as host and a special guest both. Since the Toronto rapper released his newest album Views a few weeks ago Drake has been on top of the world, and the SNL appearance is just the latest in a long string of accomplishments for the music artist.
Photos outside the SNL location show chairs lined up, and many people have spent days waiting in line. Now that is devotion.
Erykah Badu has been busy promoting ‘But You Caint Use My Phone’, her newly released mixtape, and on The Real the singer discussed Drake and the friendship that has grown between the two of them. Badu discussed how the two musicians started to become friends and she details the fact that Drake was the inspiration for her new mixtape.
Badu is such a fan of the Canadian musician that she has created a remix of his new hit Hotline Bling, one of many remixes that have been appearing for this song. The same story was shared in an interview on the Breakfast Club that occurred earlier in the week.
Badu’s new mixtape features phone themed songs and it already has some loyal fans and followers. Two of the songs on the mixtape feature ItsRoutine, a rapper who many mistakenly identified as Drake, but who Badu confirmed is not. Maybe the two musicians will work on a mixtape together in the future. The video of the interview can be found online.
The Golden State Warriors love singalongs, as every fan of the team already knows, but the team took this love even further when they sang Big Rings by Drake and Future as they hoisted their 2015 NBA Championship banner and received their championship rings. Obviously the Warriors can relate to the song and they believe it shows their true feelings. During the ceremony many were surprised when Andrew Bogut actually had his championship ring sized for and placed on his middle finger as a gesture to all the critics out there. Hopefully Big Rings helps the Warriors keep their momentum and stay on top during the next season as well.
If you ever think about it, when do you draw the line and think to your self, “Wow I’m really a Drake fan” lol. Here’s a long list compiled from different fans of why they’re Drizzy fans or aka Team Drake! Some of these are pretty funny. Once you get done going through all the reasons, think about why you know your a Drake fan. :P
