Drake had a Twitter exchange on Thursday (May 31), but not with one of his rap peers. His exchange was with an unlikely individual: billionaire chairman of BP Capital, T. Boone Pickens.
Sometime Wednesday evening, the rapper hopped on Twitter (@Drake) to brag about his riches to his 7.4 million followers, writing: “The first million is the hardest.”
Hours later, Pickens (the 330th richest man in the U.S.) responded, manually retweeting Drizzy’s tweet, and adding (@boonepickens): “The first billion is a helluva lot harder.”
According to Mashable.com, Pickens’s net worth is somewhere around $1.4 billion. In comparison, in Drake’s single “The Motto”, he raps: “I’m 25, sitting on $25 mill.” So, Pickens has quite a few million more than the rapper … to say the least.
Amused by Pickens’ comment, Drake fired back: “@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy.”
Funny little exchange, and should be a lesson to rappers. Although you may think you’re rich, and you probably are, someone always has a lot more than you do. So, let’s stop with the boasting.
