cartoon. Twitter just made their worlds crash.
Drake, in a suitably Drake moment of self-reflection, tweeted that “The first million is the hardest.” Helpful for the rest of us—apparently the dude has made some money? Are you impressed? T. Boone Pickens, who apparently follows Drake on Twitter, sure isn’t, replying “The first billion
is a helluva lot harder” with a mic-drop retweet.
At this point Drake’s laptop screen probably exploded in his face, but he was able to reply with some (deserved) humility: “@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy.” Yes he did.
There has never before been a point in history when a young black guy rich off of Canadian soap operas and luxury super-rap could exchange words with a quasi-eccentric super-rich octogenarian who loves wind power. Now they can—in public. And that, simply, is awesome.
