Drake Pays For Everyone’s Groceries

The unsuspecting shoppers at Miami’s Sabor Tropical Supermarket were shaken to their cores when Drake, Jewish rapper and all around good Samaritan, swept in and paid over $50,000 for various groceries.

Guille Deza, the recipient of one of these donations, told E! News that, “No one knew he was coming at all, we just came to do groceries. Cameras were being set up so we were all wondering what was to happen.”

Picture the scene. It’s four p.m. on a Tuesday afternoon and you are miserably scouring the aisles for the Honey Nut Cheerios you promised your husband you’d buy for him.

Suddenly, all the lights flicker on. A megaphone announces that Drake is here, and he is here for you, to buy your groceries, to make your day a little easier, because he is Drake and that is what he does.

Rumor has it these good deeds were being filmed for Drake’s newest music video, “God’s Plan.”

So Drake is a good person and good things happen to good people. His single “God’s Plan” is sitting pretty in its second week in #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. His collaboration with Migos, , has earned him some 40th official hit.

Guess it pays to be kind! But what kind of plebeian, peasant food groceries did Drake have a hand in buying? Did he aid the purchase of cigarettes and Oreos and supermarket cheesecake? Did he allow the scourge of black licorice to continue to spread across the world? Was it Pringles? Twinkies? Inquiring minds want to know.
