Drake stands with Black Lives Matter.
Rap icon Drake has donated a total of 100,000 to National Bail Out, a fund used to help bail out black mothers, caregivers and protestors amid COVID-19 pandemic.
His donation came in response to collaborator and fellow Torontonian Mustafa the Poet, who himself donated $400 and tagged both Drake and The Weeknd in an Instagram Stories post to get the superstar acts involved. “My Toronto Kings @champagnepapi @theweeknd,” he wrote. “Swipe up & match my donation but add 3 zeros! Let’s help reunite black families.”
Drake answered the call with a six-figure donation, though he encountered a slight hiccup in the process. “They just called fraud on my card LOL,” the rapper told Mustafa before it went through. “I donated 100k. They were like nah 😂.”
