‘Champagne Papi’: Drake Responds To ‘Atlanta’ Episode About Him



Drake has aired his reaction to the fictional party in Atlanta Season 2 that took place in his home in Toronto.

Van In Drake's House

It appears that on Tuesday, April 17, the chart-topping Canadian rapper has finally caught with the episode "Champagne Papi," which originally aired last week. Drake took a stab at the reference on Instagram.

"This s*** is surreal," he said in Instagram Stories. "I am too high for this."

He attached a screenshot of the episode and used the crying/laughing emoji to say that he is cool with his inclusion in the critically acclaimed comedy series.

Although he did not appear in the episode, Drake had played a minor part in it. In "Champagne Papi," Zazie Beetz' Van and her friends went to a party in the "Hotline Bling" rapper's home, hoping that they would meet the 31-year-old star.

However, it was revealed later on that Drake was not present in the party or in the property. He was actually on tour in Europe when the party was held.

The title of the episode, "Champagne Papi," was a reference to Drake's Instagram handle @champagnepapi.

Atlanta follows the story of its main character Earn, an aspiring rapper who navigates the rap scene in the hopes of making it one day and improving the lives of their family.

Donald Glover of Community and Solo: A Star Wars Story writes, directs, and stars in the drama-comedy on FX. It is currently airing its second season. Glover is also known as Childish Gambino, his stage name. The series also stars Bryan Tyree Henry and Lakeith Standfield.

While Drake himself has not appeared on the show, Atlanta already featured several real-world rappers. Quavo, Offset, and Takeoff who make up the popular rap group, Migos, made a short but hilarious cameo on Atlanta.

Hopefully, at some point, Drake will get a chance to make a cameo on the show.

Drake's New Girl

If he's not watching television or playing Fortnite, Drake gets himself busy with a number of new things, such as his upcoming album reportedly titled Scorpion and his new girl, Raye. According to multiple sources, the "Nice For What" rapper is currently romancing the 20-year-old singer whom he met while recording one of her songs.

A source told The Sun that Raye is a massive fan of Drake. She reached out to him on Twitter and sent him one of her own creations.

"He was clearly impressed by her songwriting talents and when they met to record, it quickly became obvious it wasn't just her music he was interested in," said the unnamed insider. "It's early days but the pair have already been out on a string of dates, with Drake taking her to his favorite restaurant, Nobo Berkeley in central London."

Drake's next album is expected for release next month.
