Drake and Michael B. Jordan dined together in West Hollywood on Friday night, looking trendy and calm.
On the night of May 14, Drake, 34, took a break from his burgeoning music career. He went out with Michael B. Jordan, 34. The rapper and actor arrived at Craig’s restaurant in West Hollywood, CA. They were dressed casually but stylishly, and looked comfortable as they were pictured outside the eatery. Michael wore a red plaid jacket over an olive green top and trousers and brown shoes. Drake wore a grey jacket over a white top, neon orange pants, and grey sneakers.
Drake began his night after the dinner by reportedly hosting a star-studded party with other performers such as Travis Scott and Chris Brown. The singer of “Hotline Bling” used his Instagram story to post photos of his sneakers from the night. But the post didn’t include any captions.
Canadian Rapper Also Reunites With Nicki Minaj And Lil Wayne
Drake’s recent release follows his reuniting with fellow rappers Nicki Minaj, 38, and Lil Wayne, 38, for the former’s upcoming mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty, which made headlines. The trio was featured on the project’s first single, “Seeing Green,” released on May 14. Nicki appeared on Drake’s Instagram Live to support the album. And she admitted that he was the one who gave her the beat.
“It just didn’t feel right with you not being on it,” Drake said after Nicki questioned what made him believe she might sound fine on the beat. “That’s the only way I can put it. It was fun the other way, but it’s epic this way.“
He said, “You know we’ve had some real hearts to hearts lately — it’s your world, and no one does this better than you. When you’re gone, we miss the bars and the energy you bring. We’ll miss the bars and the energy you carry while you’re gone.“
Nicki, who hadn’t recorded new music since 2018, thanked Drake for helping her “breakthrough” her “writer’s block” on her recent mixtape.
When she expressed appreciation for Drake’s assistance in bringing her back in the studio, she said that she would never regret it and she was going to yell out to the universe and the mountain tops. Drake sent her something very helpful. This made her feel very competitive again, so she told him that he needs to get writing.
