Ever wonder how the other 1 percent lives? Thanks to Drake and Texan oil tycoon-turned-wind enthusiast T. Boone Pickens, we now know that the megarich are just like us — and by just like us, we mean that they also have free Twitter accounts.

The Canadian Degrassi star-turned-rap star and the swift-boating billionaire recently exchanged a high-profile series of tweets concerning the most obvious thing they have in common: obscene wealth.

It all began when the oft-confessional Drake tweeted the late-night/early-morning lament, “The first million is  the hardest.”

Pickens, as an experienced 1-percenter (and Drake follower?) felt compelled to reply: “The first billion is a helluva lot harder.”

We know exactly how you feel, Drizzy and T. Boone! There was this one time when Music Mix went to the corner bodega for chicken-flavored ramen but could only find beef-flavored ramen, which was hella hard. That’s sorta the same — right, guys?

Either way, it seems Drake was also caught off guard by this unlikely Twitter exchange. “@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy,” the “HYFR” artist concluded.

Really, though, maybe we all got stunted? Share your thoughts in the comments section below.
