A video has emerged of Drake trying on his new chain and it’s the kind of thing that a pirate’s dreams are made of.
The chain, made by celebrity jeweller, Ben Baller, was delivered to Drake in Manchester as he continues his tour of the United Kingdom.
And the Canadian rapper looked bloody well chuffed with the new piece, as the Brits would say.
“I met @champagnepapi at the Apple Store in the Beverly center in 2008. From that day on I fucked with The Boy heavy. I was picking him up from the airport, getting him cars, trees and showing him my city like a real big homie does. #SoFarGone dropped and shit hit the fan. Then #ThankMeLater, then #TakeCare and He would take me on tour to be apart of the show giving out chains to random girls in the audience. One time at a sold out show in San Jose, Drake forgot where we were because he screamed out “LA what’s good???!!!!” And that Bay Area crowd boo’d LOUD. It felt like that southwest commercial, Wanna get away? I back stepped off that stage dumb fast In 2012 I started my family and he became the biggest superstar in the and we lost communication… So 9 years later were here in Manchester U.K. to finally have our full circle moment. More life and more jewels to come bro #OVO #TheBoyMeetsWorldTour #IFANDCO #StoneIsland”
According to TMZ, the chain is made from almost a kilo of gold and is adorned with black, green and yellow diamonds.
The video that Ben Baller shared to his Instagram shows the chain sparkling as it’s removed from its packaging.
It didn’t come cheap, though, with TMZ reporting that the chain cost around $100,000, which is about N31m.
And the rapper doesn’t looked fazed!
Drake later posted another picture in mockery of CeeLo Green‘s costume to the Grammys.
