Drake Spends $50,000 Buying Floridians Groceries, Giving Scholarship Money

A very generous trip to Florida, as the rapper produced the music video for his song "God's Plan."

  • While shooting the music video for his song “God’s Plan” in Miami, Drake — superstar, musician, Jumpman referencer supreme, purchased all the groceries for the customers currently inside said store — Sabor Tropical Supermarket. All in all, it cost him $50,000 to do this good deed quietly for the people of Miami. The shoppers were, of course, delighted by this act of generosity, and recorded their reactions on Instagram, with them flocking to the artist who encouraged them to buy whatever they wanted, and as much as they wanted.

    Drake generosity also gave $50,000 in donations to a University of Miami student — @destinyparis on Instagram, who wrote

    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.

    So, everyone update your Hotline Bling memes! Drake hates greed and loves feeding people with his immense generosity! Thank you for all the generosity, Mr. Drake!
