Though Drake does not appear to be invested in the company, he is treated like royalty whenever he goes to an location. For example, when he celebrated his 31st birthday at Poppy, ‘s surrealist nightclub, in 2017, they changed the club’s light-up sign for the night to read “Papi” — a reference to the rapper’s Instagram handle, @champagnepapi.

His hair is dark and often slicked back, and he has a mole just above his lip. He could be the son of Brooke Shields or Cindy Crawford.

In the early hours of March 24, 2018, last call had come and gone, but the party was still going strong at the West Hollywood hotspot Delilah. The opulent 1920s-themed restaurant would make Jay Gatsby feel at home with its many mirrors, palms, and Art Deco chandeliers. Celebrities regularly hold court in the pastel pink and green velvet booths, where they’re served plates of lobster gnocchi and flutes of Moët by attractive young men in white tuxedos and women in black pencil skirts.

As his star rose, he helped others along, sponsoring the Weeknd ‘s early work, starting the OVO Sound label, and giving features on his records to up-and-coming acts.
