We are indeed talking about the infamous “Drake Curse.” But did you know the personality, himself, considered a curse, became the victim of one along with Kanye West and a few other artists?

Drake is famous for making large bets on different sports. His most recent ventures are with Premiere League and El Clasico’s insistent teams Arsenal and Barcelona. He has put down £537,000 on both teams to bring the league trophies home. While Arsenal seems among few sports entities that have lifted the curse by nailing a fantastic win of 1-0 against Leeds United, El Classico’s Barca, who had an intriguing match against Real Madrid unfortunately lost the game.
