Name a rapper who’s nicer than Drake. Spoiler alert: You can’t. Because Drake is the best.
Here’s proof of that fact – Drake just dropped the video for new single God’s Plan, and he gave the entire budget for the video away to people that need it.
The video opens with the caption: ‘The budget for this video was $996,631.90. We gave it all away. Don’t tell the label.’
On his tour of good deeds, the 31-year-old pays for strangers’ groceries, hands over wads of cash to struggling families, hands over the keys of new cars to teens, surprises kids with trolleys full of toys, and rather large donations to institutions like the Lotus Home Women’s Shelter, City of Miami Fire Department and University of Miami’s Frost School of Music.
And if the video doesn’t bring a tear to your eye then frankly good sir, you are a monster.
At one point the rapper sits with a young man and his mother, telling him: ‘We’re nothing without our mothers.
‘Gotta make sure you take care of your mom, too, no matter what you do. It’s all we got. Trust me. That’s my world.’
One of the last shots of the vid is of Drake – real name Aubrey Graham – hugging his ma.
He had previously teased the release on Thursday on Instagram, hailing it as ‘the most important thing I’ve ever done in my career.’
God’s Plan appears on the his recently released EP, Scary Hours.
