WATCH Drake Show Off His New Customized Boeing 767 – But Does He Own ‘Air Drake?’

*Drake and his career are literally flying high. That’s because the Canadian rapper is now the owner of a big ol’ Boeing  767 cargo plane that has been completely customized to meet all his superstar air travel needs.

In a video released on Friday, Drake revealed the multi-million-dollar purchase. The video shows the exterior of the huge jet which features an OVO owl symbol, which represents Drake’s company called October’s Very Own and his music label OVO Sound, reports Fox news.

The video tour continues inside where it’s obvious “Air Drake” is obviously no longer a cargo plane. No sire buddy. We’re talking  a bar, leather sofas, chairs, tables, etc. Total plushness. Oh yeah, there are two bedrooms. What? Only two? 🙂

And for you haters, doubters that he owns it, the 32-year-old Toronto native captioned the video, “Nothing was the same for real…” and says to the camera, “No rental, no timeshare, no co-owners.”

Yes, we know the rapper/actor/singer’s money is long, but long enough to OWN a Boeing 767? We can’t necessarily answer that question, but it certainly helps that he partnered with the Canadian company CargoJet Inc to make it happen.

Cargojet CEO, Ajay Virmani is said to be “pumped” to do business with the mega-star, and we can only conclude Drake is equally pumped to have the coolest plane in the skies.

“We are very excited to partner with Drake as our ambassador and assisting him with his logistical needs and requirements,” Virmani said in the statement. “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.”

OK, let’s talk about the numbers. According to 24/WallSt.com, a new Boeing 767-300 freighter carries a list price of $199.3 million. Even after the usual discount to list prices, a new plane likely would cost at least $100 million. The Seattle Times notes that leasing a new 767 costs between $600,000 and $650,000 a month. Either way, that’s a lot of money for a plane. And that’s before the customization for the rapper.

The bottom line is that however he did it, Drake got hooked up and now he’s flying higher than ever.
