One individual went from paying bills to stacking them thanks to rapper Drake.

A 2021 resolution

2020 was a bummer, but Toronto-based rapper BucksInDaCut (Real name Romello) has kicked off the new year with a bang.

“I’m having a good start to 2021 fam!”


Posting a video on Instagram, he continued: “Remember my 2020 New Year’s Resolution was to have 2020s all 2020? 2021, there’s no more poor or broke, fam. I had 500 dollars to start the year, let’s count up”

Counting what he’s made so far, he’s already ‘counted up’ to $1,300 to start the year.

The positive post is picked up by 6ixbuzztv and went viral.

Drizzy drops in

The viral buzz got much louder when a noteworthy user chimed in.

Yo what’s this mans PayPal I’m doubling that for my guy Bucks B

– @Champagnepapi

Enter @champagnepapi, better known as rap superstar Drake, who offered to double the sum in Bucks’ bank account.

For anyone doubting his intentions, Bucks recorded another video to show that Drake not only came through with his offer, but he also doubled it by paying off his student debt.

“I gotta big up Drizzy, the one and only Drake, fam, he’s a man of his word, fam, he doubled my money, and on top of that, fam? I told him about my OSAP and he cleared my debts.”

Oh, and he also gave him a follow on the ‘gram.

Support others’ success

This isn’t Drake’s first random act of kindness. He famously used most of the budget for his “God’s Plan” video on people’s groceries, students and donations to a woman’s shelter.

And now, one artist’s future is looking a whole lot brighter.

“@champagnepapi Is The Realest ! I Can’t Thank Him Enough…. A Real Role Model”

– BucksInDaCut 

We don’t need Drake’s cash or clout to fuel someone’s dreams. An encouraging word, comment, share, like or follow is priceless in supporting someone’s pursuit.

Keep that in mind the next time you see someone sharing their goals.
