Los Angeles, September 4 (IANS):  Rapper Drake has returned the love to a super fan by gifting them $50,000 at one of his latest concerts.

During the 'It's All a Blur Tour' stop in Las Vegas on Sunday, September 3, Drake was speaking to the crowd when he noticed a fan holding an interesting sign.

"He got a sign that says, 'Drake, I spent my furniture money on your two shows, OVO for life,' " he read it aloud for other concertgoers, reports aceshowbiz.com.

From there, he made the decision to give the fan $50,000 for their troubles.

"You know what my man. Your furniture money, I'mma give you 50 bands tonight 'cause I love you," he told the fan, as the audience cheered on.

The 'In My Feelings' hitmaker went on to give a message to the audience, explaining why they need to treat others with kindness.

"Hey, listen," he began: "This is what life is about. I'm trying to teach you something now. I want you to understand something tonight. You never know what the next person is going through. You never know what the person in front of you, to the left of you, to the right of you, behind you, is going through."

Prior to this, Drake surprised a lucky fan with a luxurious gift.

While performing in Los Angeles last month, the 'Hotline Bling' rapper handed out a pink Hermes Birkin bag to one concertgoer. "Drake aint cheap!" he could be heard joking while carrying the medium-sized handbag with one of his hands as he approached the audience from the stage. After giving the luxurious bag, he did not forget to give a suggestion for the fan's safety. "Make sure she has security on the way out," he stated.

Later in August, Drake treated fans to free tickets to his tour after postponing his concert in Vancouver, Canada at the last minute.

The 36-year-old held a scavenger hunt on his website, with those who were able to find certain codes on the platform being rewarded with the free tickets.
