There have been players in the NFL who have played for decades in the league. At the same time, there have been some who had a rather shorter tenure. One of the players who left the NFL soon was star quarterback Johnny Manziel. The 30-year-old athlete left the league only after 2 years. However, other than his NFL career, Manziel is popular for his friendship with popular rapper Drake.
Johnny Manziel and Drake have reportedly been friends since 2013. They were one of the best buddies in the beginning, but that eventually changed. Recently, fans have been wondering whether the star rapper and the quarterback are even in touch or not. That’s primarily because there have been no pictures or appearances of the duo together for a long time.
Now it seems like the NFL star and Drake have decided to make the fans happy. There have been numerous shows in Houston recently since Beyoncé’s return. On September 17, Drake took the stage by storm at the Toyota Center. However, the highlight of his show was when his long-time friend Johnny Manziel joined him on the stage.
The 36-year-old rapper made his entry in a neon green outfit saying, “Where everything started for me”. It’s worth noting that Drake believes that the credit for launching his career goes to Houston. During his walk to the stage, Heisman Trophy winner Manziel joined him which sent the crowd into a frenzy.
Ever since the duo’s appearance, their video has been going viral on social media. The Cleveland Browns star’s presence at $250 million rich Drake’s show has made it clear that the two are still friends.
A look at the friendship of Drake and Johnny Manziel
Johnny Manziel and Drake met for the first time in Cabo in 2013, and that’s when their friendship began. After that, the two used to party together along with their crews. There used to be numerous pictures of the two together, showing their strong bond. However, with time, it seems like their friendship is not as it was earlier.
As per Yahoo Sports, the quarterback even has an “OVO” tattoo on his wrist. It is reportedly related to the rapper’s record label OVO Sound. If it’s true, then Drake must be important enough for Johnny Manziel to have a tattoo for him.
The reunion of the long-time buddies is surely something to cheer for fans. Manziel and Drake have surely given people hope that they’ll make many more such appearances together. However, only time will tell whether the duo will continue this or this was a once-in-a-while reunion.
