Drake is reportedly down $200,000 after a trip to Atlantic City this weekend, where the Canadian rapper blew big bucks at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The "In My Feelings" hitmaker headed to A.C. for a nightclub performance following a gig at the Wells Fargo Center in Philly on Saturday, according to Page Six. At the Philly stop on his ongoing Aubrey & the Three Migos tour, Drake brought out Meek Mill to perform the Philly native's "Dreams and Nightmares (Intro)" — a stunt previously pulled in Boston.
Drake reportedly arrived at Atlantic City's Daer Nightclub at around 3 a.m. on Sunday, apologizing for hitting the stage about an hour after his scheduled start time. The rapper performed five songs before heading to Scores, a strip club inside the Hard Rock where Drake's DJ, DJ Spade, was playing a set.
The club was too full, however, and Drake got the itch" to "go gambling," an A.C. insider told Page Six.
Drake and his entourage ended up in a high-rollers area, where they held a private party. The casino also reportedly opened its Sugar Factory restaurant to serve the group "mini burgers, chicken fingers, and french fries," along with a 60-ounce cocktail dubbed "The Drake," which included Virginia Black whiskey, sweet tea, peach puree, cotton candy, and sour peach gummies.
The Canadian rapper, however, "stayed at the table," a source told Page Six, and gambled away nearly $200,000 throughout the night. However, as Page Six reports, Drake still probably "had a nice chuck of change" leftover from his appearance that night.
While it isn't clear what Drake charges for private performances, the rapper did reportedly receive $250,000 for performing at a bar mitzvah for former NBC Universal president Jeff Zucker's son in 2011. A more recent estimate from 2016, Page Six reports, puts the figure closer to $300,000.
