Last night, Drake tweeted one of those generic rap truisms that he loves so much: “The first million is the hardest.” And while normally this Drakeism would go ignored, Texas oil billionaire T. Boone Pickens felt that he needed to add to the conversation. So he responded that “The first billion is a helluva lot harder,” to which @Drake responded “@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy.”
A few notes on this, besides the obvious “T. Boone Pickens knows who Drake is, and vice-versa, and they had a conversation, and we got to watch! The internet is weird!”
-Of course the first billion is a “helluva” lot harder than the first million; a billion is one thousand millions. Like, have you ever quit smoking/drinking Rockstar energy drinks/etc? The first week is the hardest single week, but know what? The first thousand weeks are totally way harder than that one week.
