Drake Gifted Custom Monopoly Game by Toronto Arena
The first hometown stop on Drake's current tour with Migos may have been postponed, but that didn't stop the city's Scotiabank Arena from thanking Drizzy for his presence with an elaborate gift. The venue shared images Tuesday (Aug. 21) of the present: a custom "North Side" edition of Monopoly themed on the rapper's life.
That includes Monopoly money featuring Drake's face, property cards featuring local addresses and chance cards based on Aubrey's catalog including "Pay $20 to someone. God's Plan." The playing pieces include the OVO owl logo, a Bugatti Veyron and Wheelchair Jimmy's wheelchair from Degrassi.
"Custom North Side Edition Monopoly board made for the one & only 6ix God," the venue tweeted. "The question is: can anyone stop the @Drake Monopoly?"
It's a timely joke. Drake's latest album Scorpion broke several streaming and Billboard chart records on its way to becoming the Toronto native's most numerically successful initial release yet. In its opening week, all 25 songs from the project, plus two tracks with Drake features, charted in the Hot 100.
Drizzy and Migos perform tonight (Aug. 22) at Scotiabank for the second time this week. Their postponed Toronto show on Monday (Aug. 20) has not yet been rescheduled. The tour is expected to run until mid-November before wrapping with two shows in Atlanta.
