T. Boone Pickens vs. Drake on Twitter: The billion dollar smackdown

t-boone-pickens-drake-gi.jpgOn Wednesday (May 30), rapper/multi-millionaire Drake sent out a boasting tweet that had at least one unintentional consequence: A smackdown from energy magnate T. Boone Pickens. Oops. Here's what happened.

Drake tweeted, innocently enough, "The first million is the hardest."

Pickens responded:



To which Drake good-naturedly replied, "@boonepickens just stunted on me heavy."

Indeed.
