Drake and LeBron James teamed up for an epic, life-altering surprise.

The "Way 2 Sexy" rapper and NBA star gifted a Toronto family with $100,000 and caught the special moment on camera. In an Instagram post on Wednesday (March 23), Drake can be seen at the Harbour 60 restaurant on camera –– the same place he filmed his "Headlines" music video in 2011.

"Lot of memorable nights in this room in my life, for sure" Drake says to the camera. "Speaking of memorable nights, I had an incredible night last night playing roulette on Stake."

The clip then shows footage of the Champagne Papí winning on the Bitcoin gambling site he recently announced a partnership with.

"So yeah, as you can see I was clearly excited," Drake added. "Anytime I get blessed like that, I always think it's good karma that needs to be transferred. So, I play for fun and I play in hopes that I can spread love always. So tonight, I'm doing dinner with my brother ... We're doing a Lobos dinner tonight."

Later in the video, Drake explains that he and LeBron invited Michael, a student-athlete who plays basketball for the Royal Crown Academic School in Toronto. Drake said Michael's mom would also be at the dinner and said she's "one of the hardest-working women."

"We're gonna bless them tonight, so I'm looking forward to seeing their reaction."

The camera captured the group's meeting, and, after a few hugs and brief exchange, Drake pulls out stacks of bills in the amount of $100,000 and gives it to Michael's mom.

"Hopefully it makes this journey a little easier," Drizzy said.

The surprises didn't end there, though Drake also gifted Michael's coach a pair of new shoes and pledged to make a sizable donation to LeBron's I Promise School in Ohio.
