In the hip hop world, rappers will do anything or clout but Drake is proving that his riches are not just for show because the OVO honcho just copped a multi-million dollar private jet. He unveiled "Air Drake"— a massive plane personalized with his own logos including OVO’s signature owl symbol — on Instagram on Friday (May 10).
Drake captioned the video, “Nothing was the same for real…” and says to the camera, “No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners.”
Nothing was the same, indeed.
Drake can say “so long” to ever flying commercial again because now he has himself a Boeing 767 cargo plane that seats 30 comfortably in leather sofas and chairs. Air Drake’s even got a bar. Of course, a plane this luxe has a price tag to match! According to Airways magazine, new 767-300F planes cost an estimated $185 million, and that’s before customization.
The Canadian native created the personalized private plane with CargoJet, a Canadian airline. "Supporting home grown businesses has always been a top priority of mine," Drake said in a statement, "so when an opportunity came up to get involved with a great Canadian company I was honored to do so."
CargoJet's president and CEO, Ajay Virmani was equally excited about the partnership saying, "We have had a lengthy relationship with Drake and this partnership has grown organically between both parties. CargoJet and Drake are both great Canadian successes, we are thrilled to be partnering together."
