French Montana says he won $60,000 basketball bet with Drake

Drizzy apparently didn't believe in Cleveland Cavaliers' star player LeBron James

Rapper French Montana has claimed that he won a $60,000 (£40,000) bet with Drake over a basketball match.

Drizzy apparently bet that the Golden State Warriors would win yesterday’s NBA Finals, while French Montana bet that the Cleveland Cavaliers would emerge victorious.

Cleveland Cavaliers scored 93 points to Golden State Warriors’ 89 points at the Oracle Arena in Oakland yesterday (June 20) to claim the title. It was the third NBA Championships victory for the Cavaliers’ star player, LeBron James.


“Shoutout to my brother Drizzy Drake for that 60 bands, ’cause you ain’t believe in LeBron,” French Montana said in a Snapchat shortly after the match finished. Watch below.

Drake’s single ‘One Dance’ recently secured the longest reign at Number One in the UK single charts in nine years, after it spent a seventh straight week at number one. It has now gone on to top UK the charts for 10 consecutive weeks. An unreleased version of the track premiered at the Red Bull Culture Clash gig in London last week (June 17).

Meanwhile, Drake’s ‘Views’ is in the running for this year’s Polaris Prize, the top Canadian album award. It will compete against albums by Grimes, Carly Rae Jepsen and Kaytranada for the prestigious annual prize.
