Real Boston Richey Needs Drake’s Help After Getting Swindled By Sneaker Reseller

Real Boston Richey recently got scammed by a sneaker reseller who sold him the Certified Lover Boy Nike Air Force 1s. After he got two right shoes with his order, the "Bullseye 2" MC had to ask Drake himself for some help to "get [him] right big bruh" because "they doing [him] wrong." Despite the unfortunate nature of the situation, it at least shows that this type of scam can happen to anyone, not just regular customers. Via an Instagram video, Richey showed off the two right shoes and made his impassioned plea to Drizzy to help him out. After all, he did gift Bfb Da Packman a pair to congratulate his weight loss journey, so maybe he'll have the same goodwill this time.

"Man you gotta fix this,” Real Boston Richey asked Drake. “I can’t even splash how I want to. These f**k n***as stay selling me two rights. And y’all ain’t even put the beads in the box. Now I gotta go regular white lows. I’m tryna splash on them [with the] Drake motherf***ers. Aye, listen man. All you h*e a** n***as, you resale a** f**k n***as. Y’all n***as- next time you n***as sell me two rights, gettin’ your a** robbed!"

Furthermore, the CLB Forces aren't the most distinguishable of sneakers, so the confusion is at least predictable. Moreover, they look like regular white 1s, but with some minor tweaks like the phrase "Love you forever" in cursive on the midsole. Not only is it a slight reference to the album the shoe's based on, but it actually goes all the way back to Drake's childhood. "Love You Forever AF1 dedicated to my incredible mother and our favourite book,” he revealed around the sneaker's release. The book in question is Love You Forever by Robert Munsch and Sheila McGraw, and it's about a mother singing her son a lullaby at each stage of his life.

Meanwhile, Real Boston Richey might have better luck copping Drake's upcoming collaboration with the NBA. To elaborate, his apparel collection of varsity jackets, hoodies, and more featuring various league teams will drop on Friday (April 21). Maybe Richey will still be able to "splash" on them with this new official merch drop as opposed to trusting resellers. Regardless, stick around on HNHH for the latest news and updates on Real Boston Richey and Drake.
