Drake took time out of his schedule to visit the sick and shut in on Wednesday.
New York Giants wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. had his season cut short on Sunday,Â October 8, 2017, when he fractured his ankle in a game against the Los Angeles Chargers.
While his fans and NFL family took to social media to wish him a speedy recovery, OBJ received well wishes in person sports fanboy, Drake.
âHad to come visit broâ¦bounce back like 13 @obj â- (my 13 is backwards but itâs still bless),â Drake wrote under a photo of himself and Beckham, throwing up the playerâs jersey number â13.â
OBJ returned the favor and posted a photo of him and Drake, this time with him sitting up in his hospital bed, writing, âCause this got that makin of a Legend feel @champagnepapi.â
Drake and Beckham go way back.
Beckham revealed in 2016 that he was staying at Drakeâs house while the rapper laid down the final touches for his album âViews,â released that year. Drake also shouted out the Giants player in âFake Loveâ off his latest album âMore Life.â
âThatâs my guy right there,â OBJ said of his friend. âSomebody whose mindset is the same as yours, and they want nothing but success, they want to be the best. We just click on a level like that, and this really was the start of a friendship thatâll carry through a lifetime.â
