Have you ever wondered what actually happens when Drake’s Hotline Bling?

A 21-year-old ‘vape god’ was brave enough to find out first hand when he saw Drake had re-posted one of his videos on Champagne Papi’s Instagram.


Austin Lawrence, 21, from New Jersey is the co-owner of Vertigo Vaporium, and Drake digs his vape videos so much he now has a direct line to the rapper after sliding into his DMs, according to GQ.

In the GQ interview, Lawrence recalled the moment he found out Drake was a fan:

I go to his page and search my name and I’m like freaking out. I’m like, ‘Hoooooo-ly shit!’

He was hookah-ing at the time, basically. He was like, ‘I’ve never seen the machines you were using’. Then he said, ‘Yo, could you hook me up with a vape?’

I told him, ‘I’ll hook you up with a starter kit or whatever.’ And then he was like, ‘Yoooooo, should I just fly you out?’


His answer? ‘I was like, um, helllllllll yeah?’ So, next thing he knows, Lawrence is jetting out to LA to vape with Drake in his Calabasas mansion.

Started from the bottom, now he’s here.
