Drake is still riding high three weeks after dropping Certified Lover Boy, which has remained at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 since its September 3 release. The 21-track project boasted features from a laundry list of notable names, including Lil Baby, Lil Durk, JAY-Z, Travis Scott, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Project Pat and Rick Ross.
Future, who contributed to the tracks “N 2 Deep” and “Way 2 Sexy” featuring Young Thug, became the proud recipient of an extravagant gift from the OVO Sound boss after the latter landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking Drake’s ninth chart-topping single.
On Monday (September 27), Future shared an Instagram video showing off his brand new Richard Mille watch, which begin at over $200,000 and can reach over $3 million a piece (just ask JAY-Z).
“Appreciate it @champagnepapi,” he wrote. “Demon time 1 of 1 joint.”
Richard Mille watches are a symbol of success in the rap world. Everyone from JAY-Z and Meek Mill to Pharrell Williams and Gunna have flossed at least one during the course of their careers. But Diddy begs to differ.
“I’m not a hater though, I’m a connoisseur of fly shit,” he said at the time. “But I’m just telling y’all you getting tricked by the Richard Mille. The Richard Mille is like a Timex or some shit like that.
“You understand what I’m saying? It’s not hot. I have like two or three. I never pull ’em out … they ugly. I don’t even wanna hate. I don’t even know Richard Mille. But fuck, I’m on some Black shit. Black man, save your money and go buy a house.”
