Drake is becoming a major investor in the tech startup app, Omni.

It looks like Drizzy Drake is once again expanding his business ventures, but this time around it’s not with a restaurant.

According to TMZ, Drake has become a major investor in the new startup tech app, Omni. TMZ reports that Drake met the app’s founder Thomas McLeod through a mutual business partner and the two hit it off about their love for sneakers. Apparently McLeod told Drake about his plans for the app, and the 6 God wanted in. McLeod tells TMZ that Drake will be much more than just an investor as the rapper will also be involved in the creative process too.

As for the actual app itself, it will let you organize and retrieve your personal belongings from storage, item by item, without ever visiting a storage facility. For example, if you had 100 pair of shoes, you'd send them to an Omni facility nearby where they'd be professionally photographed, stored and logged. When you wanted a certain pair, you'd see organized pics, select them, and the pair you wanted would then be delivered to your front doorstep by an Omni concierge. All in all, it pretty much helps organize people who have a clutter of shit.

While you're probably wondering if this will take off, take note that Drake isn’t the only famous celebrity behind Omni. Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and Boston Celtics forward David Lee are also backing the tech startup as well.
