Some gifts are worth every penny. 

Drake’s close friend Future the Prince gifted Drizzy 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. “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 [40] and [Oliver El-Khatib] would be upstairs cooking what would eventually become So Far Gone.”

Drizzy continued, telling his followers that 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 🤞🏽”

That wasn’t the only gift Drake got for his birthday this weekend, as he was also presented with a custom OVO chain from Young Thug, featuring a photo of him with his son Adonis on the back. The guest list for Drake’s Haloween bash reportedly included FutureChris Brown, French Montana, Offset, Kawhi Leonard, Jack Harlow, YG, as well as Drake’s dad Dennis Graham, and you can read more about it here
