Drake Buys 2Pac's $1 Million Crown Ring

Drake has emerged as the buyer of 2Pac's crown ring, TMZ reports. The ring is the same one Pac wore in 1996, and earlier this week it was reported that it became Hip-Hop's most valuable artifact ever after selling for for $1 million at a Sotheby’s auction.

Drake showed off the ring on Friday (July 28) while promoting Travis Scott's new album, Utopia. Drake is featured on the track "MELTDOWN" where he takes aim at Pusha T and Travis Scott.

“Man, f–k all that spinning the narrative s–t/ I melt down the chains that I bought from your boss,” Drake rhymes in the latter half of his verse, taking slight aim at Pusha’s relationship with Pharrell. “Give a f–k about all of that heritage s–t/ Since V not around the members done hung up the Louis/ They not even wearing that s–t.”

Later on in “MELTDOWN,” Drake continues with, “You lucky that Vogue was suing/ ‘Cause I would’ve been with the Wassas in Paris and s–t.”
