We need more people like Drake in our lives.
HipHopDX reports that the rapper recently sent Kodak Black more than $300,000 in Bitcoin, the popular cryptocurrency.
Kodak Black dropped the dime on the rapper during an appearance on The Breakfast Club.
“Drake and I do a lot behind the scenes talking and s—t,” he said. “I ain’t tell nobody this, but the other week that n—a sent me a quarter-million dollars, for no reason. Me and my brother Lance, we in the car and this n—a text me like, ‘You got Bitcoin?’ I was like, ‘Nah.’ He was like, ‘Set up a Bitcoin wallet.’ So I’m putting two and two together, that’s four! S—t, and then over time, those coins got up to like 40 bands a coin. So then that s—t came in and it’s really like $300,000 in my Bitcoin wallet right now.”

Kodak Black’s math aside, the news about Drake’s generous gift comes amidst rumors that the two are forming a collaboration or a partnership agreement with the OVO brand — something host Charlamagne Tha God alluded to in a follow-up question.
That question was met with a hearty laugh from Kodak Black — who didn’t confirm or deny the supposition.
“That’s crazy! Charlamagne, you smart for real,” he responded. “You got a gift from God, man. Yeah, we been on some s—t, we be hollering.”
If there was a partnership, it’s not clear what it would entail.
What is the value of Bitcoin?
Since cryptocurrency is a largely-unregulated market, the value of Bitcoin tends to fluctuate. As of this writing, the value of Bitcoin is $37,641.20.
That means you need more than $37,000 to purchase one Bitcoin.
While this seems like a lot of money, it’s nothing compared to Bitcoin’s previous 52-week high of nearly $70,000, per Coindesk’s charts.
Drake's Super Bowl Bets
Drake is heavily vested in the strange and wonderful world of cryptocurrency.
As AfroTech previously reported, the “Controlla” rapper wagered more than $1.25 million of his own money into Super Bowl wagers, and he won two out of the three bets he placed.
The Action Network reported the breakdown of Drake’s wins. For betting on Odell Beckham Jr.’s anytime touchdown, he banked more than $710,000 USD. And for betting on a Rams win, he banked more than $710,000.
And when AfroTech reported the news, it appeared as though Drake would be receiving his payout in Bitcoin, based on his Instagram post about the matter.
