Drake is a huge fan of the Harry Potter franchise. He likes the books, he likes the movies---to the point where he's even super imposed his face over Draco Malfoy's in the films. However, there is one coveted Harry Potter object that even he hasn't gotten his hands on, yet. That object would be none other than a first edition of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, a copy which would set him back like $160,000. No biggie. Drake recently admitted that he's pumped to purchase the item. Per the rapper/actor:
I should get it. My birthday's coming up. Maybe I'll buy it for myself as a treat.
There's currently a first edition copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone on the market for $160,000. That's a lot of moolah, but the rapper is one of the top five richest in his genre of music. His home in Hidden Hills, CA cost a whopping $7.7 million dollars. It has a pool, tennis court, horse facilities, sand volleyball and that's just the stuff outside. He also owns a Bentley that cost around $300,000. He told THR in the interview report that he has a solid collection of Hermes Birkin Bags in his possession to give to his future wife, which indicates there are more things in his possession that are costly. What's $160,000 in comparison?
Drakes love of Harry Potter seemingly has no bounds. He's noted he's an avid fan in the past, and once he even photoshopped his head onto Draco Malfoy's. Or should we call him DrakeO Malfoy?
Still, the question is: Did Drake buy the copy of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone? Per Drake's comments, the interview was clearly conducted before his birthday, which actually happened on October 24. Is he the proud owner of a first edition these days? Or is he still waiting to pull the trigger? These are the types of questions we need answers to.
While most of us will never be able to afford a first edition copy of the very first Harry Potter book that J.K. Rowling ever wrote, the rest of us plebians can catch Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them 2 when it hits theaters next November. In case that's too long, HBO also announced yesterday that it would be putting on a lengthy, commercial-free Harry Potter marathon at the start of 2018. The first Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them flick will be included in that, too.
