Nicki Minaj reveals that Drake is in fact a billionaire, but doesn’t want the world to know this. “The Barbz” rapper made mention that Drake is tremendously affluent on her Instagram story post on Tuesday.“This is what happens when you got a rich — I’m sorry, a very rich, rich, rich, rich — Canadian friend… who is the only billionaire that I know that don’t want people to know he a billionaire,” she said in a video while standing outside of a private

A fan also tweeted, “Shoutout to @Drake for being a billionaire too, even though you ain’t want no one to know [crying face emojis],” which Nicki Minaj liked.

According to some sources online, the net worth of the Toronto rapper is said to be around $250 million.

Maybe Drake has indeed taken notes from his “mentor.” If you recall, in September of 2014, Drake stated Jay Z was an ‘incredible mentor” in an interview on Hot 97. “It’s one of the strongest, if not the strongest [of with any rapper] … He’s just like an incredible mentor to me.” When asked if he felt he was on the same level as Jay Z, Drake modestly responded: “I’ll forever be looking up at those guys.”

Jay-Z cemented his status as a billionaire in 2019, following the success of his various business investments outside of music, including TIDAL, Uber, Armand de Brignac, and D’Usse. Kanye West also surpassed $1 billion in April 2020, propelled by the success of his Yeezy fashion brand.
