Rapper Drake surprised shoppers at a Miami grocery store on Tuesday when he showed up and footed the grocery tab for every shopper in the store — an amount reportedly totaling around $50,000.
What are the details?
E! News on Tuesday reported on the event, noting that the platinum-selling rapper showed up at the Miami-area grocery store at about 4 p.m. Tuesday, where he announced on a megaphone that he’d be paying for the store patrons’ groceries.
Guille Deza, a shopper at the store, told the outlet, “No one knew he was coming at all, we just came to do groceries. Cameras were being set up so we were all wondering what was to happen.”
Deza told E! that Drake didn’t just pay for the groceries — he helped them pick out items and encouraged shoppers to fill up their baskets.
According to Deza, a rumors going around the store was that the rapper showed up to film footage for an upcoming music video based on one of his singles, “God’s Plan.”
Drake’s grocery store act of kindness isn’t the only recent one of its kind: the rapper on Monday donated $25,000 to the Miami Senior High School, where he performed his single, “God’s Plan.” The musician reportedly filmed footage there for the accompanying music video.

The rapper’s generosity didn’t stop there, either: The Miami Hurricane on Monday reported that Drake visited yet another school — this time the University of Miami — where he awarded a tearful-looking student with a $50,000 scholarship.
He later performed “God’s Plan” for congregants on Moss Terrace in the Donna E. Shalala Student Center.

The Hurricane also reported that the rapper gave a $10,000 donation to the school’s Donna E. Shalala MusicReach Program.
Drake on Thursday shared a thoughtful-looking Instagram photo, which he captioned, “Last 3 days were the best I have had in a very long time…there’s nothing like seeing people experience a joyful moment when you can tell they need it the most.”
