We are in the second month of 2018, and Drake has already been full of surprises.
Drizzy of course blessed us with Scary Hours; a two track EP featuring “God’s Plan” that has been killing the Billboard charts and breaking all the streaming records. When did producer Boi-1da know the record would smash? He said,
“Instantly. With Drake, he never misses. Soon as I heard it, I knew it was going to be great.”
No lie, Drake is blessed. With his wealth and celebrity status, it seems like the “Controlla” MC is making the conscious effort to spread his blessings not only with his music. Imagine skipping class the day after the Super Bowl only to have OVO’s leader have the entire school in his music video. I’d be sick!

On Monday, Drake made an unexpected visit to Miami Senior High to shoot part of his music video for “God’s Plan”. If you are thinking they captured visuals inside classrooms or the hallways, then you’re sadly mistaken.
Drizzy Drake Rodgers performed his hit from a crane. Yes ladies and gentleman a crane!
A drone captured all of the footage and of course students and faculty had their snapchats and cameras working overload. After the festivities came to a close, Drake donated $25,000 to the school and offered to help design new uniforms.
Drake’s philanthropy doesn’t stop there. After receiving multiple scholarships with an inspiring essay, Destiny Paris, a student at the University of Miami, thought she had reached the scholarship limit. Unbeknownst to her, Champagne Papi had another gift up his sleeve. Drake pulled up on Paris with a $50,000 check toward her tuition.
“Oh you gotta love it!” Paris shared her story and her encounter with Drake on Instagram.
This happened today. I applied to scholarships last year for which I had to write an essay. I received those scholarships and thought that was the end of it. Apparently, my essay and my story made it to other departments. I was contacted this weekend about doing a video speaking about where I come from, things I’ve been through, and why it is so important for scholarship donors to continue to donate. This was the surprise the whole time. Drake told me that he has read great things about me and appreciates how hard I’ve worked through so many trials and decided to give me $50K for my tuition. @champagnepapi THANK YOU SO MUCH!!’ You don’t understand what this means to me! I would’ve never imagined this happening to me. I’m just a girl from Denmark, SC that wants to MAKE IT and be somebody and for you to see my hard work means the world. Thank you so much. God I thank you. You are so great and amazing! Thank you for blessing me when I thought my hard work was going unnoticed. I’m living out my dreams. God’s Plan 🙏🏾
No the giving isn’t over yet. Drake must have missed the memo that Christmas isn’t until December! This time, Drizzy was helping people with their groceries.
We have apps to have our groceries delivered to us. Walmart encourages you to shop online and pick up what you purchase at the store. We are encouraged to be lazy or as I say “work smarter.”
But if you are still an OG shopper, you never know when someone may, oh I don’t know… buy everyone in the store’s groceries. Yesterday, Drake ran up a check at Sabor Tropical Supermarket in Miami, Florida, spending $50,000 on shoppers’ groceries!
Imagine walking into the grocery store just to pick up a “few things” to have Young Money’s hottest act, Drizzy Drake, buy your food. Drake even stopped to take pictures, sign autographs, and help shoppers find what they need.
It’s hard enough finding a Walmart associate to help you with what you need. The fact that there’s a superstar helping you shop is unprecedented.

Drake is truly living God’s plan and it goes to show that when you have, you should give. Not only does it make you a better person, it enhances the community.
We need Aubrey Drake Graham to keep pushing the Kulture forward and setting examples for younger artists coming into the rap game.
Update: The Drake blessings continue down in Miami.
