Alabama beat Georgia in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on Monday night in improbable fashion. After falling behind 13-0 at halftime, the Crimson Tide put freshman backup quarterback Tua Tagovailoa into the game at the start of the second half and ended up winning 26-23 in overtime to give Alabama head coach Nick Saban the sixth national championship of his legendary career. And no one—not even the guys on the Alabama team!—were as happy about the Crimson Tide win as Drake.
Drake watched the CFP title game with 2 Chainz, and it seems as though he had a large stack of money riding on it after making a bet with Bulldogs superfan Quavo. It’s not clear how much the two rappers bet on the game, but when it ended, a video of Drake celebrating the win surfaced on his Instagram Story. It featured him talking to Quavo on the phone and telling the Migos rapper he was expecting to be paid promptly following Alabama’s win.
"Oh yeah! Excuse me, excuse me, I gotta move this, excuse me. I need all my chips," Drake yelled into the phone. "Ay, I need all my chips. Quavo, I need my chips with the Huncho Jack dip, my boy! What’s up? What’s up?"
Later in the clip, Drake gave props to Saban and referred to him as the "best coach of all time." He also showed a wad of $100 bills in his video and said it represented just a small portion of whatever he won when he bet on Alabama.
"This just the beginning, too," Drake said. "This like one-fourth of it. This just the beginning. Come on, man. You know how we rocking, man."
2 Chainz posted a video on Instagram as well that showed Drake screaming about the Alabama win in the background.
This isn’t the first time Drake has made a large wager on a sporting event with a fellow rapper. He once lost a grip of money to French Montana on an NBA Finals bet. He’s also dropped some serious money on the Kentucky basketball team in the past. But it looks like he may have made a bunch of that money back, courtesy of Quavo.
