It's been a rough week for Drake as he has suffered yet another high-profile gambling loss, reminding fans to his gambling addiction mentioned by Kendrick Lamar in diss track.

AceShowbiz - Drake's losses are coming at a fast and furious clip. The embattled rapper and sports gambler put down a hefty $565,000 bet on Tyson Fury to win his boxing match against Oleksandr Usyk. Unfortunately for Drake, Fury lost by a split decision in Saudia Arabia, leaving the rapper without the potential $1 million payout.

This incident comes in the wake of Kendrick Lamar's fierce accusations in his diss track "Meet The Grahams," where he calls out Drake for having a gambling addiction.

On his Instagram Story, Drake shared his bet slip, showing he had faith in Fury, who was a -125 favorite with an impressive 34-0 record. Despite one judge scoring the match 114-113 in Fury's favor, the other two judges awarded the victory to Usyk, giving him the undisputed heavyweight champion status.

The impressive victory added to Usyk's career, now boasting a 22-0 record, and marked the first professional defeat for Tyson Fury.

This isn't Drake's first major gamble gone wrong; he has a history of high-stakes losses. Among his notable past bets, he lost $400,000 on Jake Paul's fight against Tommy Fury, and $1 million on Argentina winning the 2022 FIFA World Cup, despite their victory, because the match ended in penalty kicks.

The rapper also lost a staggering $2 million Canadian dollars when Israel Adesanya was knocked out by Alex Pereira in November 2022. Beyond these, Drake lost $550K backing Adesanya against Sean Strickland, and $890K betting that Logan Paul would knock out Dillon Danis.

The so-called "Drake curse" has become a buzzword among fans, suggesting the rapper's bets might jinx those he supports. The speculation isn't entirely unfounded given his long list of significant losses. In the wake of his recent losing streak, online tongues have wagged, with fans humorously referencing Kendrick Lamar's lyrics about his gambling habits.

"Thirty-seven, but you showin' up as a seven-year-old / You got gamblin' problems, drinkin' problems, pill-poppin' and spendin' problems / Bad with money, whorehouse / Solicitin' women problems, therapy's a lovely start / But I suggest some ayahuasca, strip the ego from the bottom," rapped Lamar on "Meet The Grahams."

Despite the losses, Drake recently had a notable win in February 2024, where he successfully wagered $1.15 million on the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, earning him a $2.3 million payout. However, these wins seem like rare bright spots in a series of dark days plagued by both financial and personal setbacks.

With the intense scrutiny from Kendrick Lamar's diss tracks still fresh, and another public loss added to the list, it's evident that Drake's penchant for high-stakes gambling is backfiring, adding fodder to the fiery feud between him and Lamar. As the dust settles on this latest gambling debacle, all eyes are on how Drake will respond next.
