Drake is loved.
For his 35th birthday, his close friends Future the Prince gifted him the Rolls-Royce Phantom that he used to rent and ride around in to, as he put it, “keep up appearances” back in the day.
“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 an Instagram post of the car alongside some archival footage of him in the car itself.
He continued, “I used to scrape together 5k a month somehow to keep up appearances. We whipped this to Ottawa to see [Belly] and [Cash] and to Montreal for my first show ever. I used to pick up [Niko] and roll every day or wait outside [Nebby’s] class for her. Park outside 15 Fort York while me and  and [Oliver El-Khatib] would be upstairs cooking what would eventually become So Far Gone.”
He toldd his followers he doesn’t necessarily condone spending money you barely have on “material things,” but that he now considers the act “extreme manifesting.”
“Today in 2021 my brother [Future the Prince] tracked down the exact car I use to stress over and gifted it to me…it’s mine now. Manifestation complete,” Drake added. “Thank you for all the love and appreciation and gifts and texts and dm’s…more than just loved I feel truly appreciated and that is the only gift I ever needed. TREY FIVE EASY MONEY DRIZZY 😈 let’s get this shit. BLICK EMMMMMM 🤞🏽”
He said a lot more.
