A Drake impersonator — who looks nothing like him — earns thousands of dollars for club bookings where he lip-syncs as the Canadian rapper.
The bootleg Drake, who goes by “Izzy“, sat down with No Jumper for an in-depth interview. Izzy claims he went to Miami where people told him he looked just like the rap star.
They encouraged Izzy to shave a heart in his head — and that’s when the money started rolling in.
“People DM me, like, ‘Do you want to come to my event? We can’t pay Drake because he’s too expensive,” said Izzy. He claims club owners cover his travel expenses and hotel bills.
“I’ve been doing my thing, you know. That’s all I’m gonna say.”
One promoter in Las Vegas booked Izzy to perform at a club there, but the promoter didn’t want to anger the real Drake. So he put in a call to his management, and got in touch with Drake himself.
Drake reportedly told the promoter, “Let the guy get his bag.”
Most rappers upon hearing that someone is impersonating them in clubs would threaten lawsuits. But drake is so rich, he can afford to be unbothered.
