I could go make enough money off that and not even rap.”
What’s that? Facts?
Drake is a man of many passions: music, acting, the city of Toronto, Kentucky basketball (and any other sports team that’s doing well), and whiskey. In fact, he loves whiskey so much that he decided to make his own, (but you already knew that if you got the sub-title above). You’ve seen Virginia Black all over his social media outlets and even in his latest commercial.
Drake announced today (Jan. 11th) that he will be going public (IPO) and accepting investments from those who wish to join him in his “vision to redefine whiskey.”
Drake joined the whiskey game back in 2016 and is now giving the public an opportunity to get a piece of the pie.
Investors will be able to buy stock in the company in order to raise money to aid in the domestic and international expansion of the whiskey brand. Drake and CEO of Virginia Black, Brent Hocking plan to raise $30 million. Hocking is known for creating award-winning brands and bottle designs.
According to the official press report, Hocking states,
“Virginia Black is the perfect combination of exceptionally good juice in exquisite packaging at an accessible price. From inception, we wanted everyone to enjoy Virginia Black and are pleased to extend the opportunity to millions of Americans and other investors around the world to become part of the Virginia Black family.”
TriPoint has been a pioneer and leader in IPOs for years and CEO, Mark Elenowitz had this to say about the upcoming IPO,
“Virginia Black leads us into exciting new territory where Main Street meets Wall Street, giving millions of fans worldwide the opportunity to be a part of Drake’s success.”
