Apparently, Drake bought a 14-carat gold-plated PSP, which was ordered in 2008 by Pharrell Williams.
According to a listing on the online auction site Joopiter, owned by Pharrell Williams, the gold-plated PSP was commissioned in 2008 along with Williams’ existing gold Blackberry.
The PSP featured a 14-carat gold case “to replace standard plastic,” and the weight of the portable console was increased from 280 g to 659.7 g. “The Goyard carrying case was also ordered for storage and transportation,” and it was auctioned.
Last year, Williams sold a gold PSP at auction for 15,700 pounds. Mario’s 18-carat yellow gold pendant with white, cognac, yellow and black diamonds, sapphires and rubies was also sold for 12,160 pounds.
And thanks to the music video, we seem to know who bought the PSP.
Earlier this week, Drake released a music video for the song “Jumbotron Shit Poppin”. The single was taken from “Her Loss”, his 2022 collaborative album with 21 Savage.
The video, shot by Tristan C-M, repeatedly demonstrates the golden PSP, while the rapper performs in front of his Ferrari. The video also shows Drake greeting Lil Baby and heavyweight boxer “Iron” Mike Tyson. Check it out below.
Drake and 21 Savage released “Her Loss”, their first full-length project together, in November 2022. The album was a commercial success, topping the Billboard album charts, as well as reaching number one in the UK, Denmark, Iceland, Lithuania, Norway, Switzerland and Drake’s native Canada.
However, the release of the album was also not without controversy. Vogue magazine sued the duo after they printed fake copies of the magazine with their image on the cover to promote the album. They also received a negative reaction to Drake’s verse in the song “Circo Loco”, which was thought to be a snub to Megan Thee Stallion. She responded online, asking the hip-hop community as a whole to “stop using [her] shooting for influence.”
Last year, a gold-plated version of the Nintendo Wii designed for Queen Elizabeth was sold for 24,350 pounds.
