Oilman Billionare Pickens Shames Canadian Rapper Drake on Twitter
Twitter provided the forum for an eightysomething billionaire to shame a twentysomething Canadian rapper.
When rapper Drake posted a comment on Twitter May 30th about earning money, he admitted that the first million is the hardest to accumulate.
Texas oilman and billionaire T. Boone Pickens saw the tweet and couldn’t resist tweeting back a rebuttal, claiming that earning the first billion is a helluva lot harder.
Drake was surprised that the U.S. billionaire was following his tweets and responded by acknowledging that Pickens “just stunted on me heavy.”
A spokesman for T. Boone noted that Drake’s acknowledgement of Picken’s tweet gained him plenty of new fans in the billionaire oilman’s office.
Pickens is currently ranked by Forbes Magazine as one of the top 400 richest people in the USA.
At the age of 25, Drake is well on his way to raking in his first billion, with more number one singles on Billboard’s Rap Chart than any other singer.
