Drake Scores Big off Alabama
Drake was over the moon after Alabama’s victory in the NCAA football national championship. Not so much because he’s a big ‘Bama fan: The Toronto-based rapper seemed to be celebrating a personal win against Migos’ Quavo and fellow Georgia rapper 2Chainz.
In a video posted by Drake during a championship watch party, we see Drake as the final seconds of the game tick down and his bank account ticks up. Apparently he had a serious bet with Atlanta rapper Quavo, who is known to be a die-hard Georgia Bulldogs fan. Also in attendance was 2Chainz, who didn’t look all that happy that Drake just won “Back to Back” bets on him and Quavo.
“Oh yeah! Excuse me, I gotta move here, excuse me. I need my chips! Quavo, I need all my chips with the Huncho Jack dip my boy! Wassup!” Exclaimed the Views rapper as he was presumably on the phone with Quavo immediately after the big win. Quavo was in attendance at the game, so it’s not quite clear if he was able to answer his phone or if Drake was leaving a message.
Racks on Racks
Drake also posted a video of some of his winnings: a massive wad of 100 dollar bills that he jubilantly flashed atop an Alabama jersey and helmet. “This is only 1/4 of the winnings,” he bragged.
If that was only a quarter of what he is owed, we have to assume he and Quavo had a pretty serious bet between the two of them.
2Chainz reaction says it all. He posted a video of his own as he sat on the couch watching Drake’s celebration. Let’s just say he looks like he just lost a lot of money as well (2Chains is also a big Georgia fan, of course). To be fair, it was a pretty heartbreaking loss by the Georgia Bulldogs, who were going up against football titan Nick Saban to bring home their first National Championship since 1980.
Watch Drake Lose It
It’s common knowledge that Drake is a huge sports fanatic. The “6 God” artist is frequently spotted sitting courtside at basketball games and on the field during football games. You know his passion is genuine because he goes just as hard at home as he does at the stadium.
Watch as he immediately calls up his homie Quavo to demand his pay. To add insult to injury, he even tosses in an underhanded reference to one of Migos’ signature rhymes, “I’ll be waiting on you to touch down. I’ll come pick you up from the airport. Yeah, dat way.”
Prior to the Crimson Tide scoring their game-winning touchdown in overtime, 2Chainz admits to the camera, “Somebody check Drake page and make sure he ain’t post that…I know he recording that fake a** field goal they finna have.”
Oh, but he did… and it’s clear in the video that 2Chainz is not happy about having to cough up the dough.
Looking like he just downed six blunts and a Thanksgiving dinner, 2Chainz wallows in his defeat. “Man that was the illest sh** I’ve ever seen in my life,” he groans.
We don’t know exactly how much money was being tossed around on January 8th, but judging by who was involved… we’re going to assume it was a lot! Quavo had one of the biggest years in hip-hop in 2017 and Drake is… well, he’s Drake. It’s safe to say they weren’t throwing around chump change.
