Drake may be a bigger Harry Potter fan than any of us.

The actor-turned-rapper has apparently been considering making a big purchase. He told THR that not only has he read the entire J.K. Rowling series, he has been eyeing a rare copy of the first book for four years. He wants a first-edition copy of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" that is available for the staggering price of $160,000.

"I should get it," he told THR. "My birthday's coming up. Maybe I'll buy it for myself as a treat."

In addition to his birthday, the book could also celebrate his latest TV project's progress. Drake is set to executive produce a revival of the British series "Top Boy," which Netflix recently picked up. The streamer highlighted his passion for the series, telling THR that Drake "drove its resurrection."

That said, the rapper doesn't necessarily need an occasion or milestone to justify the high-dollar purchase; after all, wasn't it Drake who taught us that "YOLO"?
