YK Osiris may owe a few people some cash, but at least he’s self aware.

The musician caught up with Barstool Sports last week—as he was handed a comically large $65,000 check—and explained why it is that he’s seemingly in a continuous cycle of being in debt to others.

“I think I just don’t make smart bets. I just jump in the water and swim,” Osiris said. “Are you going to save me?”

As for the check itself, Osiris claims that $65,000 alone wouldn’t be enough to get him out of the money he owes others, jokingly saying “I need more than that man.” As far as we know, Osiris has owed money to Drake and French Montana in the past, having payed off his Drake debt by serenading the Canadian superstar in his home with a live rendition of “Worth It.”

“😂😂😂 @champagnepapi said if I sing , my 60k I owe him is clear lol 😂 welp ‼️‼️ I had to clear that debt,” Osiris wrote in a caption. “This what happens when u owe 60,000 🤦‍♂️. The real shit doe 😂😂😂”

But a song and dance aren’t enough to cover all of his losses, as YK has also dealt with some other misfortunes—notably losing an earring that he dropped 325,000 on. To get it back, he began offering anyone who locates it a smooth $60,000 reward.

“I really lost one of my earrings, I’m sick,” he wrote on his IG stories. “Please if anybody finds my other earring, can you return them please? I’m never getting another pair again. I can’t believe this shit.”
