Drake Buys Chicken Wings In The U.K. And Causes A Commotion
(AllHipHop News) The “Hotline Bling” rapper, 30, felt hungry after performing at the city’s First Direct Arena on Thursday (February 9) as part of his “The Boy Meets World” tour.
According to editors at the Yorkshire Evening Post, the hip-hop superstar sent a friend down to a Nando’s chicken restaurant in Leeds city centre to collect a bumper order of chicken wings and garlic bread for him and his entourage.
A screenshot posted by a Twitter user with the handle @MunroBM96 showed that the order came to $665, although the restaurant management declined to comment.
According to one diner, the musician’s order was so big that patrons were kept waiting while staff scrambled to fulfill it.
Nightclub promoter Paddy Mulcahy wrote on Facebook, “Just popped into Nando’s for a pre-sell out meal and we aren’t being served because Drake has ordered £600 worth of chicken wings!”
Drake, full name Aubrey Drake Graham, has been hard at work, as in addition to wowing fans on the U.K. leg of his world tour, he told fans at Tuesday’s gig he has also been putting the finishing touches to his More Life playlist project.
“I’m excited because I’m about like a week and a half, two weeks away from finishing this project I’m working on called More Life,” he told the Leeds crowd. “All that means is I get to drop a new project and at some point I get to come back and be with my people in Leeds…I go by the name of Drake and I can’t wait to see you again.”
More Life is a collaboration with bosses at Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio, and will debut on his OVO Sound Radio show on the service.
It is rumored to feature some of the hottest names in rap including, 2 Chainz, Rae Sremmurd, Bryson Tiller, Trouble, Gucci Mane, The Weeknd, Travis Scott.
