Drake now owns a massive Boeing 767 cargo plane – despite once rapping about the dangers of climate change on the polar ice caps.
The ‘Trophies’ rapper unveiled his new possession on Instagram Friday and the aircraft features his OVO owl symbol, along with the moniker ‘Air Drake.’
OVO stands for Drake’s company – October’s Very Own – and for his record label OVO sound.
The 32-year-old Grammy winner took viewers on a quick tour of the plane’s interior. Inside the plane are luxury gold and brown sofas adorned with gold walls.
‘No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners,’ he proudly boasts as he shows off his new plane.
In the clip, Drake also pays homage to CargoJet’s President and CEO Ajay Virmani.
He stated: ‘That guy made it happen right there, that’s the man.’
The unveiling of the plane comes after news broke that Drake had partnered with the Canadian company.
‘We are very excited to partner with Drake as our ambassador and assisting him with his logistical needs and requirements,’ Virmani said in the statement. ‘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.’
Airways magazine puts the massive plane at approximately $185million – and that is without the customization.
But the new plane does seem to go against a brief moment when the rapper appeared to warn on the dangers of climate change.
In his song ‘Heat of the Moment’ he makes reference to climate change and specifically the melting of the ice cap.
‘And all the cops are still hangin’ out at the doughnut shops,’ he says in the song. ‘Talkin’ ’bout how the weather’s changin. The ice is meltin’ as if the world is endin.’
While the song is about his relationship with a woman, it is clear he was thinking about the impending chaos that would come with climate change.
Now it seems he’s aiding in the process.
