Cuban rapper waits two hours for Drake
A Cuban rapper named Apollo Lofton was not going to pass up his chance to share his music with Drake without taking his shot.
Earlier this week, Lofton waited two hours for Drake to come out of a store in Miami just so he could play one of his songs for him. It reminds us of the drama of 2005 Agitation and flow where a newbie rapper from Memphis tries to slip his house tape on tape to a hip-hop star on a 4th of July party.
As Drake walks to his vehicle with a bodyguard, you can see Lofton standing backstage with a speaker blasting his song up for him to hear. Drake looks back for a second and recognizes him.
âI just jumped on it, I had to do it,â Lofton told Drake before getting into the backseat of the vehicle. “It was too hot. I love you.”
On Instagram, Lofton says, âThe struggles of a aspiring rapper. I stayed outside for almost two hours just to play my record for Drake and he didn’t care. It is God’s plan. I appreciate you @champagnepapi #OVO. “
Lofton later told Miami-based Power 96 radio station that Drake had called him in his car after the video stopped to hear more of his song.
Along with the video, Lofton also posted a screenshot showing that Drake is now following him on Instagram. “Champagnepapi has started to follow you.”
We’ll have to follow Lofton to see if his brief encounter with Drake catapults him into stardom, but few can say that – even for a second – Drake had your song on his mind.
As rookie rapper Djay puts it in Agitation and flow, “Everyone must have a dream.”
