It started from the bottom, now both are here.
An unexpected interaction between Jeff Bezos and Drake boiled the internet this week after a meme the rapper created turned around.
The post featured two old photos: one of Drake in what appears to be an apartment at No. 15 Fort York in Toronto and a photo of Bezos on a desk during the early Amazon era.
Apartment 1503, as shown in the picture, is where Drake recorded most of his He has gone so far mixtape, which became the debut that Drake put on the rap world map.

“I have to start somewhere,” the Grammy-winning artist wrote in the title.
Bezos himself then intervened, blatantly commenting below “Started From Below, Now We’re Here,” referring to one of Drake’s most popular songs “Started From the Bottom.”
Bezos’ comment received more than 8,600 likes, including a response from Drake himself.
“Holyyy Jeff knows about the man no one can chat with me today !!! Big Bezos to the comments,” Drake replied excitedly.
In the early hours of Thursday morning, the post had 1.16 million likes.
Drake’s net worth is about $ 250 million, starting with a career in successful Canadian teen drama. Degrassi: The next generation where he played the beloved character Jimmy Brooks for seven seasons.
During the early days of his career, his performance checks were the main source of income for him and his mother, as she was ill and unable to work to support them both.
Bezos, who is one of the richest men in the world (an estimated $ 140.1 billion), also started with humble beginnings. Before Amazon became a big fan, Bezo’s vision was to create an online bookstore called Cadabra. Amazon was founded and started in the Bezos garage.
Amazon was down about 38% in a one-year period Thursday morning.
