Following the Los Angeles Rams’ 23-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals, the 6 God took to Instagram to congratulate his close friend and Rams wide receiver on winning his very first Super Bowl ring.
Drizzy posted a slideshow of photos of him and OBJ from over the years and accompanied it with a heartfelt verse/poem written specially for his “Laugh Now Cry Later” co-star.
“I wish I got my flowers when everything wasn’t rosey/How I’m supposed to smell em when everyone’s being nosy/Pictures of me victorious they making with Adobe make me thankful that a trophy was never what made me cozy,” Drake wrote.
“For now I just want to feel something/After that I wanna heal something/And after that I wanna build something/But today I just fulfilled something @obj.”

Odell Beckham Jr. reportedly earned $1 million in bonuses for bringing home the Super Bowl, but he isn’t the only one celebrating a huge payday thanks to the Rams’ victory; Drake also netted himself seven figures after winning two separate bets on the game.
As revealed on Instagram last week, the Toronto native wagered $1.6 million Canadian dollars (roughly $1.26 million U.S.) on the Rams-Bengals game, including $600,000 on the Rams to win and an additional $500,000 on OBJ to score a touchdown.
Drake’s first bet came through just over eight minutes into the first quarter as Beckham Jr. caught a 17-yard strike from Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford to score the first touchdown of the game.

Drizzy also had a $500,000 bet on his pal to rack up at least 62.5 receiving yards, but he only managed 52 yards in a curtailed appearance. The 29-year-old limped off the field late in the second quarter and didn’t return after injuring his left knee.
Coupled with his winning bet on the Rams’ victory, Drake won a total of $1.981 million Canadian (around $1.55 million U.S.) from the Super Bowl showdown.
When Odell Beckham Jr. was asked about Drizzy’s sizeable bets before the game, the NFL superstar told ESPN with a laugh, “Man, I’ve got to come through for him!”
Drake was among the array of Hip Hop royalty who attended Super Bowl LVI, and he certainly arrived to Inglewood’s SoFi Stadium in style. The OVO Sound boss turned heads as he pulled up with his crew in matching Nike NOCTA gray tracksuits.
As for the Pepsi Halftime Show, Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar and Mary J. Blige combined for an unforgettable spectacle, complete with special appearances from 50 Cent and Anderson .Paak.
