How Drake got his private jet for free and repurposed it to be worth $185 million

With a net worth of $250 million, Drake can pretty much afford whatever he wants.

But even with that much coin, the Canadian rapper still gets freebies from time to time.

Take his private jet for example, which he repurposed and is now said to be worth $185 million.

The jet in question is a 767, which is absurdly large for one that’s privately owned, but each to their own as they say.

The 767 is a former freight plane, so that should give you some idea of scale.

The 767-200, with a whopping 206 ton cargo capacity and a 20,000 gallon fuel tank, served for 23 years as a cargo plane.

The plane was a gift from Canadian cargo carrier Cargojet back in 2019.

It’s not entirely clear when the relationship between Drake and the cargo carrier began.

However, a Cargojet spokesperson confirmed that the carrier service has had a lengthy relationship with the 36-year-old.

Apparently, Cargojet has transported supplies and equipment for his tours in the past.

Why would Cargojet gift such a massive airframe to someone like Drake?

If the answer wasn’t obvious, it’s publicity; Drake has more 143 million followers on Instagram.

As part of the deal to hand over the luxuriously remodeled Air Drake 767-200, the rapper agreed to take pictures of his plane and post them to his social media.

The aircraft may have been old, but Drake’s renovations were extensive and thorough.

It looks like a brand new plane, but it’s technically recycled, making it one of the most luxuriously recycled products anybody has ever bought – hands down.

Inside the cabin there’s leather armchairs, luxury bathrooms, and a full kitchen.

From the outside, the plane almost looks like any other, although the clasped hands on the tailfin and the OVO Owl painted on the front door give away who it belongs to.

It still carries the massive Cargojet name that has been emblazoned across the side for more than two decades, but it has gotte a fresh coat of paint to spruce it up.

Air Drake is sure to make a great home away from home for the iconic rapper, as he takes on international tours.
