Drake just continues to be the “Angel Papi” we need in the world right now. He recently showered fans with another tremendously kind gesture in the video for his single “God’s Plan.”
The Toronto rapper had nearly one million dollars to spend on the video that could’ve gone to luxury cars, an exotic location, the finest of jewelry and a high end wardrobe. Instead, the OVO front man decided to give it all away. Yep, that’s right. The entire video is a five minute montage of Drake popping up in random locations around Miami generously surprising people with stacks upon stacks of cash. Grab the Kleenex.
As revealed in the production stage of the video, Drake wasn’t giving away pennies here. On top of getting a surprise visit from Angel Papi himself, Miami Senior High School also received new uniforms and a $25,000 gift from him as well. One lucky student by the name of Destiny James was blessed with a $50,000 scholarship towards her college tuition after getting hold of an essay she’d written. Drizzy also donated $50,000 of those funds to a Miami woman and children’s homeless shelter.
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
Does all this good samaritan talk make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside? Good. Drake wants you to use that motivation to give back. Even though he hates charity challenges on social media, Drake popped up on Instagram and asked his followers to “do something for someone, anything, the smallest thing just to bring another human some joy.”
Drake, you are truly fulfilling God’s plan! Keep up the good work, boo.
