Drake Shows Off His Private 'Air Drake' Jumbo Jet

We all know rappers tend to be the modest, shy and retiring types, but Drake has gone and broken the mould, showing off his massive personalised jumbo jet in a post on Instagram.

While it is relatively 'normal' for big stars to get about on private planes, it is a level up to actually have your own massive Boeing 767 cargo plane.

In the video, you can see the plane has been emblazoned with 'Air Drake' livery, as well as a big fuck off owl - which is the symbol for his record label OVO (October's Very Own).

The inside of the plane looks predictably swanky too, with golden sofas and walls.

The video shows the Grammy Award winner strolling around the aircraft while mumbling in typical indecipherable fashion. At one point, he takes the opportunity to make it totally clear that the plane is all his though, saying: "No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners."

The 32-year-old then points to Cargojet's President and CEO, Ajay Virmani, and says: "That guy made it happen right there, that's the man."

That's because the Canadian company had just announced a partnership with the rapper.

In a statement, Mr Virmani said: "We are very excited to partner with Drake as our ambassador and assisting him with his logistical needs and requirements.

"We have had a lengthy relationship with Drake and this partnership has grown organically between both parties. Cargojet and Drake are both great Canadian successes, we are thrilled to be partnering together."

I think 'assisting with his logistical needs' is playing down the gifting of a massive jumbo jet, but hey.

Unsurprisingly, Drake was pretty pleased with the partnership too.

He said: "Supporting home grown businesses has always been a top priority of mine, so when an opportunity came up to get involved with a great Canadian company I was honoured to do so."

While having your own massive jumbo jet does undeniably look like fun, you could argue it is a little lavish, particularly given the ever growing issue of climate change and the damage caused by our individual carbon footprints.

Indeed, Drake himself actually references the problem in his song 'Heat of the Moment'.

A verse goes: "And all the cops are still hangin' out at the doughnut shops,

"Talkin' 'bout how the weather's changin'.

"The ice is meltin' as if the world is endin'."

Still, nice plane Champagne Papi?
