Par for the course, Twitter stirred up some rumors over the weekend that suggested Drake was taking on Lil Tjay in an upcoming Verzuz battle. And come on, even that sounded ridiculous to the teenage rapper who promptly shut down the chatter on the social media platform.
On Sunday night (November 22), Tjay retweeted a post that read, “HIT FOR HIT: Drake vs. Lil Tjay. Who’s taking this one??” and wrote at the top, “Drake is the [GOAT]. I’m only 19. twitter y’all wild.”
As Lil Tjay suggested, his catalog doesn’t hold up to the 34-year-old Drake’s stacked discography. In fact, he has just one studio album under his belt called True 2 Myself, which was released last year. He does have several collaborative singles in his arsenal, including the multi-platinum single “Pop Out” with Polo G and gold-selling single “Slide” with French Montana and Blueface.
Meanwhile, Drake has five studio albums in his catalog with the sixth, Certified Lover Boy, arriving in 2021. The Toronto superstar also has another three EPs, seven mixtapes and dozens of singles — both as a solo artist and as a featured artist.
With over 170 million records sold, Drake is one of music’s best-selling artists and is ranked as the world’s highest-certified digital singles artist by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). He’s won four Grammy Awards, six American Music Awards, a record 27 Billboard Music Awards, two Brit Awards and three Juno Awards, the Canadian version of a Grammy. As of 2019, his estimated net worth is $150 million.
