Drake Claims Armed Robbery Was a Setup

Rapper lost $4,000 and gift from Lil Wayne in 2009

Drake was robbed at gunpoint in his hometown of Toronto in May 2009 — and, he tells
GQ
he thinks the robbery was an inside job. (The interview is not online, but MTV has summarized it.) "I knew it was a setup, because I had on a sweater and a jacket. But when they banged on the car window with a gun and opened the door, the first thing he said was, 'Yo, run that chain,'" Drake, who had been on a date, says. "They didn't rob [my date], and her purse was sitting right there. So I was like, 'OK, yup — you set the whole thing up." The rapper lost around $4,000 and a new chain that Lil Wayne had given him.
