Drake’s private Boeing 767 jet is heading towards India.
According to TMZ, Drake is loaning Air Drake to the Sacramento Kings as they travel as a team to India for their preseason exhibition matches. The Kings’ owner, Vivek Ranadive, got in touch with Drake’s team to cut a deal. Starting on Monday (Sept. 30), the team will board a 20-hour flight. The deal appears to be the first time that anyone besides Drake and his crew has rented the plane.
“The Sacramento Kings prepare for their preseason India trip in style thanks to owner Vivek Ranadive and his pal Drake, who loaned his $185 million luxury Boeing 767 to the team. Hear from @swipethafox, @hbarnes, @MB3FIVE & coach Luke Walton about the near 20-hour trip,” Sean Cunningham wrote to Twitter.
This isn’t the first time that Drizzy has been in a giving mood. More recently, Drake and his official merchandise company, TourLife, announced that they are donating all the proceeds from his Rock in Rio shirt to the Amazon Conservation Team. Last month, fires affected Brazil’s Amazon rainforest.
“Dropping tomorrow at 12PM PST/ 3PM EST on Tourlife.com to support local Amazonian communities on the front lines in the fight against fires and deforestation in the Amazon with all proceeds of the Drake exclusive tee going towards Dr. Mark J. Plotkin’s foundation ‘The Amazon Conservation Team,’” the statement reads.
As the year comes to an end, Drake’s accomplishments do not go unnoticed. Last week, Drake’s 2018 hit, “God’s Plan,” became his first diamond-certified single. Furthermore, the track is officially the thirty-second title in the country to reach this milestone. In addition to that, Drake became the first solo artist to have more than 200 appearances on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. Lastly, his most recent album, Care Package, became his ninth studio LP to go No. 1.
