After that, the rapper, who is now 39 years old, liked a tweet that stated, “Shoutout to @Drake for being a billionaire too, even though you ain’t want no one to know [crying-laughing face emojis].”
This revelation was made by Nicki a few months after a journalist for Forbes named Zack O’Malley Greenburg published his report for top Hip Hop earners for 2021, in which it was stated that Drake’s earnings for the previous year were $50 million. Nicki’s comments came shortly after the publication of Greenburg’s report. By posting an emoji of a laughing and crying face in the thread’s comments at the time, the rapper gave the impression that he was making significantly more money than that.
According to many online sources, Drake’s net worth is approximately $250 Million
According to Celebrity Net Worth, the singer, who is 35 years old and has made a fortune, is claimed to have made $250 million, which is a significant amount less than what Minaj has stated. According to the website, he pulls in an estimated sum of seventy million dollars each and every year.
The extravagant spending that the God’s Plan singer has engaged in over the past few months has recently garnered attention in the media. It was reported in March of this year that Drake had paid $70 million for Robbie Williams’ Tuscan-style Beverly Crest home in California. The home is located in Beverly Crest. One of the most prestigious and lavish abodes in the entire city of Los Angeles is a large house that spans 20,000 square feet.
Additionally, it has been stated that after joining the gambling website Stakes in December of the previous year, he had wagered a total of one billion dollars in the site’s virtual games of chance.
At the Young Money Reunion Show, Nicki Minaj and Drake Came Together
