Odell Beckham Jr. had a temporary residence at Drake’s house in 2016, sharing a captivating encounter with overzealous fans on the Punch Line Podcast.
Recounting a surprising early-morning break-in during the rapper’s tour, OBJ described the intruders entering the room exclaiming, ‘We made it to Drake’s crib!’ Their disheveled appearance, with dirty socks as if crawling through mountains, prompted Beckham to play it cool while on edge.
The fans, seeking pictures and autographs, were accommodated before being promptly escorted out. The gravity of the situation led to immediate calls to security and the police, marking an unforgettable incident of house intrusion at 7:30/8 in the morning.
In a subsequent interview with GQ Sports in September, the enigmatic Baltimore Ravens wide receiver clarified his living arrangement at Drake’s Calabasas mansion during the NFL off-season in 2016.
Despite misconceptions of being roommates, OBJ explained that Drake was on tour, and he was merely living there.
The camaraderie between Drake and Odell blossomed when the NFL star joined the New York Giants in 2014, evolving into a strong friendship over the ensuing decade.
Beckham Jr. further disclosed a memorable three-month stint in London with Drake and Von Miller during an NFL off-season tour.
While London served as their home base, the trio explored various European cities, including Norway, Stockholm, and Amsterdam. The Rosewood hotel in London stood out as Beckham’s favorite, providing a welcoming atmosphere during their travels.
The narrative of OBJ residing with Drake originated from a 2016 interview with UFC star Ronda Rousey for DraftKingsTV.
During the conversation, he detailed his stay at the OVO honcho’s house while contributing to the completion of “VIEWS,” adding depth to the intriguing connection between the NFL star and the acclaimed rapper.
