Drake Gives LeBron James' Family Foundation $1M in Bitcoin to From His Roulette Winnings
Also receiving a life-changing gift were a mother and son duo.
Drake gave LeBron James a million in Bitcoin after hitting the jackpot at the Wynn.
Drizzy recently won big on roulette at Stake.com., an online gambling house that he has been touting on his Instagram lately. In an Instagram video shared Wednesday (March 23) from his hometown's famous steakhouse Harbour 60 (where he shot the "Headlines" music video back in 2011), Drizzy shared that he recently had an "incredible night" betting and winning big. The LeBron James Family Foundation, which invests its time, resources, and passion in creating generational change for the kids and families of James' hometown in Akron, Ohio, by focusing on education and co-curricular education initiatives, received a gift of $1 million in Bitcoin.
“Anytime I get blessed like that, I always think it’s good karma that needs to be transferred,” he said in the clip. In addition to giving away nearly $1 million for his "God's Plan" music video to different families and institutions, the certified hitmaker gave $100,000 to a high school athlete named Michael, who plays basketball for Toronto's Royal Crown Academy, and his hardworking mother.
In partnership with Stake.com, Bron and Drizzy arranged a dinner for Michael and his mother, where they surprised the family with the money. The emotional reveal was accompanied by "Papi's Home" from the rapper's recent Billboard 200-topping album Certified Lover Boy. Guess he's now Certified Charitable Boy.
