The Canadian rapper was recently on a Kick livestream while promoting the online cryptocurrency casino, Stake. He was also joined by fellow rapper Lil Yachty on the stream as he asked the hosting platform Kick to join him for a business deal. “Yo, listen, I don’t know who owns Kick but I know the chat wants to see Yachty go live. I’ve been telling him I feel like he can take over Kick. That’s just a little business idea for whoever owns Kick; they need to cut the check for my brother,” Drake said during the livestream.
But things went a tad bit sour when it appeared that Drake might need to get a cut of check for himself as well. The rapper tried donating an amount to a live streamer called Daisy who laying down, laughing while getting a foot massage but his card surprisingly got declined. Adding to the crazy moment, the Hotline Bling rapper chimed, “Embarrassing” in a high-pitched voice.

The audience could hear someone whispering, “What just happened?” near the rapper. But to clear the confusion, Drake announced that he wasn’t using his personal card for the payment but a special card was given to him for this livestream. According to UNILAD, the God’s Plan rapper has partnered with Stake for a while now and has placed some huge bets on high-profile sporting events. He allegedly lost $1,000,000 after a bet on the FIFA World Cup final between Argentina and France as well.

Drake had also reportedly placed a bet on the boxing match between Jake Paul and Tommy Fury back in February 2023 where he lost around $400,000. Netizens found a good opportunity to troll the rapper for his credit card fiasco and some wrote that they are willing to lend the “broke” rapper some money if they can. Other netizens joked and compared their own wealth to Drake and how the rapper is "finally being relatable." Well, we are certain that Drake isn't going to be short of cash any time soon but getting his substitute card declined on a livestream was surely funny as hell.
