According to social media, Drake was spotted at a strip club one day after performing at the terrible Astroworld festival in Houston, where nine people were trampled to death.
Toronto’s BlogTo reported the Canadian rapper left around $1 million in cash on the floor of Houston’s Area 29 strip club, Daily Mail reported.
In a Nov. 9 social media video released by the rapper’s friend, DJ Akademiks, ecstatic women are seen scooping up the cash. When a man prompted them to say, “Thanks, Drake,” the women replied in unison, “Thanks Drake!”
The club thanked Drake’s Instagram account, @champagnepapi, in a now-deleted post. The posting read:
“Thank u @champagnepapi @roddyricch @dontoliver @ubk.ent @lira_galore @realberniceburgos @realamarie @kayykilo @turkeyleghut @bookedbymolo last night vibes was on point GRAND FINALE TONIGHT SUNDAY FUNDAY.”
The club posted, “2 floors covered with money and EVERY DANCER who worked last night went home happy thank y’all for the love and support WE RUNNING IT BACK 2 NIGHT ! @area29htx SUNDAY FUNDAY.”
According to The Sun, Drake is a regular at the club and had attended the week before the tragedy.
Drake and Scott are mentioned in lawsuits stemming from the concert.
On Friday night, Nov. 5, a “mass casualty incident” occurred when audience members tried to get closer to the stage during the performance by rapper Travis Scott at the Astroworld Festival in Houston, Texas.
There were about 50,000 people in attendance at the music festival, but the event turned tragic around 9 p.m. when the Houston native rapper took the stage.
“I’ve spent the past few days trying to wrap my mind around this devastating tragedy,” Drake posted on Instagram:
“My heart is broken for the families and friends of those who lost their lives and for anyone who is suffering. I will continue to pray for all of them, and will be of service in any way I can. May God be with you all.”
More than a hundred lawsuits have been brought against Scott, Drake, and concert promoter LiveNation.
