While this weekend may have been heavily centered on rapper Kanye West and the release of his latest album “The Life of Pablo”, but Drake was also on the radar and I think it’s safe to say Drizzy is winning too.
At the 2016 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, Aubrey “Drake” Graham was presented with the key to his hometown of Toronto, Canada. And in true Drake fashion, he seems to be celebrating in a way that only someone of his stature and fame could; in an announcement made via Instagram, it seems that Drake (who’s instagram handle is @ChampagnePapi) is coming out with his own line of whiskey called “Virginia Black Whiskey”.
There have been no details as to how involved he is in the launch of the new brand as of yet – the website currently redirects to a landing page with a contact email – but it seems likely that Drake will keep us in the loop about the development of his latest venture.
Drake will be joining the ranks of other rappers who have created their own line of liquor; fellow Young Money signee Nicki Minaj has her Myx Moscatos, 50 Cent has his Effen Vodka, Diddy has Circo and even K. Michelle has been endorsed by the Jack Daniels brand. Congratulations Drake!
