This discovery will separate the Drake fans from the Drake freaks.

The Canadian rapper's old notebook is reportedly up for sale with a price tag of US$35,000 (NZ$53,841). 

The notebook is said to be filled with the 32-year-old's lyrics, notes, and writings, and is being sold online through the collectibles company Moments in Time.

TMZ said the notebook was discovered in a garbage bin near his grandfather's furniture factory in Toronto, Canada. As the saying goes, one person's trash is another person's treasure.

Believed to be from 2000, the rap relic includes a number of wish-lists, with young Drake scribbling his penchant for Lacoste, Adidas and Nike, according to TMZ.

The memorabilia company successfully auctioned off another Drake diary last year.

Moments in Time was thrust into the world of rap beef earlier this year, after the company began selling Lil Wayne's 1999 lyrics notebook for US$250,000 (NZ$384,581). Lil Wayne reportedly took legal action, saying the broker didn't have permission to sell the book.

According to the Daily Mail, Lil Wayne's legal team accused the man who found the notebook of secretly taking it from the rapper's old car. They said the man deliberately saved the book to cash it in after Lil Wayne became, well, Lil Wayne (a best-selling music artist).

Moments in Time is currently selling the car of iconic 90s rapper, Tupac - for a cool US$1.5 million (approximately NZ$2.3 million).

Die-hard Drake devotees, may the best fan win.
