We’re all used to seeing our favorite celebrities spending their massive wealth on expensive hobbies like buying luxurious cars, huge mansions, and other lavish things like clothes, shoes, and jewelry. However, we still get surprised whenever they buy a private jet.

The luxurious aircraft is somewhat outside most Hollywood stars’ league. Aside from the fact that it literally costs millions to acquire one, its maintenance cost also runs extremely high. However, it didn’t stop this famous Canadian rapper from buying what he wants!

The Extravagant Purchase

In an interview, the famous rapper Aubrey Graham, also known as Drake, recently bought a customized 767 private jet. According to sources, the rapper spent between staggering $75-$100 million to purchase and customize the said aircraft!

Drake says he doesn't need to rent an aircraft whenever he wants to travel to another place anymore.

Drake showed off his new private jet in a video he shared on his Instagram account. Fans immediately noticed his hand logo on the aircraft’s front and back tail. The rapper named his jet “Air Drake” to further prove that the luxurious aircraft in the photo is actually his.

The Gratitude

Drake also thanked a certain man who helped fulfill his wishes to buy a private jet. According to sources, the rapper went to Ajay Virmani of Cargojet Airways for assistance. If it wasn’t for him, he wouldn’t be able to ink the deal to own an aircraft.

Famous stars like Kevin Durant congratulated Drake and said he deserves to have his own private jet.
