In other hip hop news, Briefly.co.za previously reported that a few months ago Drake and DJ Khaled linked up to drop two songs, Popstar and Greece. To celebrate the success of the two singles, Drake bought a diamond owl and key pendant chain for Khaled.
The DJ took to social media to flaunt the beautiful gift that his friend got for him. Khaled explained that the iced-out chain looks exactly like the chain that Drake is wearing in the music video of Popstar. He shared a short clip on Instagram where he shows off the custom-made vanity item. He captioned his post:
"Thank you @champagnepapi for this beautiful gift. Luv forever. #WETHEBEST #OVO Luv always KHALED KHALED."
In the video, Khaled explains:
"It is always special when we connect. If you watch the Popstar video, Drake is wearing one and I now got one. It's called brothers. This gift means so much to me, Drake got me a beautiful gift. Fully iced out and it's so heavy."
