Drake’s old notebook finally sold and you’ll never guess how much was paid for it.
The 32-year-old singer’s high school scribble notebook was found in a dumpster near his grandfather’s furniture factory and is now being sold through online memorabilia company, Moments in Time.
The notebook, which is from around 2000, featured a Lacoste sticker on the cover with the stage name of the “Hotline Bling” hitmaker — whose real name is Aubrey Graham — written above it in bold lettering.
According to TMZ, inside the journal that sold for $35,000, Drake wrote about buying a Lacoste jacket for $171 and listed another shirt and a hat by the fashion brand under his “must-haves,” as well as Adidas sneakers and various items from Nike.
On another page is lyrics to a song called “Smell P—-,” which included lines such as: “Sholman’s a p—- … Johnny’s a snitch … You and Rosenblatt are like Abercrombie and B——.”
This isn’t the first famous notebook Moments in Time has put up for sale recently.
In March, Lil Wayne sent a legal letter to the company — who was selling his 1999 jotter for $250,000 — insisting he is the rightful owner of the collection of lyrics and the broker doesn’t have permission to sell or transfer the book to anyone.
Wayne’s legal team argued he never abandoned the notebook, which was discovered in one of his old cars. He claims he simply misplaced it and was thrilled to learn it had been found.
They accused the man who found it had “absconded with the notebook” and deliberately concealed it for years in order to cash in.
