After donating $25,000 to a high school in Miami where he shot his next music video and awarded a $50,000 scholarship to a lucky University of Miami student, Drake continued his generosity spree by covering the grocery bills of shoppers at a local supermarket.
On Tuesday, the rapper stopped by the Sabor Tropical Supermarket in Miami and told shoppers via a megaphone that he’d be paying for their purchases, according to E! News. The rapper reportedly spent $50,000 on the groceries.
“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,” Guille Deza, who was at the store for the surprise, told the outlet. The customer added that the gossip around the store was that the act was part of Drake’s upcoming music video for “God’s Plan.”
Excited patrons also snapped selfies with the 31-year-old singer.
“A real king when out and paid for everyone’s groceries in the store, all the while encouraging people to buy more lol,” one fan wrote on Instagram. “BE GOOD AND IT’LL COME RIGHT BACK AROUND!!! so much love and bless this man 100 times over for all his generosity.”

Of course, some Miami residents just missed meeting Drake, and expressed their disappointment on Twitter.
“My aunt met drake today at the supermarket on 71….. he bought everybody groceries,” one user lamented. “THE DAY I DONT GO SEE HER HES THERE. FML.”
Another said, “When u find out drake was at the supermarket at the corner or your house and you were just taking a nap.”

Drake’s giving spree started on Monday, when he made an afternoon drop-in at Miami Senior High to shoot the visuals for “God’s Plan,” the latest hit off his new EP, Scary Hours.
He performed his song on a crane located on the school’s baseball field, while a drone camera captured the proceedings. Thrilled students made videos of their own, many of which were shared to social media.
