About that 767 Drake has. It cost him nothing.

Last month, Drake posed in front of Air Drake, a 767 widebody (a 767-24Q(ER) for us airliner obsessives) that had been decked out with a luxury interior. It’s pretty bling.

Yes, it’s used. But even so, you’d be hard pressed to pick one up for less than US$80 million plus the cabin customization. And yeah, Drake’s on a pretty good run, but does he have that kind of dosh?

The short answer is “no.” And the slightly longer answer is “he doesn’t have to.”

CargoJet, the Hamilton-based cargo carrier, gave the plane to Drake thinking that this would be a nice way of promoting the company. They know he’ll fly the thing all over the world on tours, vacations and to watch basketball games.

In other words, CargoJet is happy to provide Drake with a flying billboard.
