Drake Reached Out To Injured NFL Stars
During this past NFL season, the OVO Sound boss reached out to superstars Odell Beckham Jr., Saquon Barkley and Joe Burrow — each of whom had suffered the same torn ACL knee injury that previously put Drizzy (and his album) on the shelf. The 6 God posted a video of himself on Instagram Story walking while adding some encouragement for his NFL buddies.
“SOME CONFIDENT STEPS at 5 WEEKS hope all of you are healing up well”
The 6 God’s Working On Music From Bed
The bum knee didn’t keep Drake from working, though. He took to his Instagram page to deliver some must-see shots of himself rested up in a massive bed surrounded by studio equipment.
