DJ Khaled and Quality Control CEO Pierre “Pee” Thomas are some of the most respected, and highly paid, moguls in hip hop — but even they have no shame in their game hopping on the Mega Millions craze.
Tonight’s drawing is up to $1.28 billion and if anyone’s got a winning ticket it’ll easily change their lives in an instant.
Perhaps wisely, Khaled’s viewing the drawing as a great opportunity to promote his next album, “God Did.” He posted a vid yelling … “They didn’t believe in us — God Did” as he flashes stacks of Mega Millions tickets.
Previously, he’d been relying on Drake, Lil Baby and Jay-Z to hype his album. We’re thinking the lotto tickets gotta be at least as effective as them.
Khaled’s post certainly gets approval from Pee — the QC shot caller was busy Friday defending his own purchase of a bunch o’ $2 MM tickets.
Khaled is a regular on Forbes’ “Hip Hop Cash Kings” list and Pee is making open bids for 300 Entertainment … so neither guy needs the extra revenue.
Still, it’s damn hard to pass on a billion-dollar gamble!
