Hey, have you noticed that Drake is good now?
The Canadian rapper has embarked on some kind of generosity spree recently, performing big and bold acts of kindness. On Tuesday, February 11, Drake showed up at a Sabor Tropical Supermarket in Miami, Florida and spent $50,000 on groceries for all of the shoppers inside. In the Twitter video below, Drizzy is seen entering the store and speaking into a megaphone, telling the costumers, “This is a moment for you to get whatever you need.”
That’s not all—just last week, Drake made a surprise donation of $50,000 to a University of Miami student named Destiny James. She detailed the event on her Instagram, describing how Drake surprised her on campus to present her with a large novelty check. That incident follows a $25,000 donation to Miami High School just days prior, where Drake filmed the video for his 2018 single and No. 1 hit, “God’s Plan.”
While it’s great to see Drake give to the Miami community in really wonderful ways, it’s hard to completely celebrate him without considering his continued promotion and support for rapper Baka Not Nice, his former bodyguard who was arrested and charged with forcing a woman into prostitution and keeping the profits, a little something called human trafficking.
New year; new, generous Drake. Let’s hope he takes this energy and applies it to his business practices, too.
