Born October 24, 1986, Aubrey Drake Graham (better known as “Drake”) is a Canadian rapper, singer, songwriter, record producer, and former actor.

Drake is a huge influence in the music world today and is one of the best artists of all time. Many argue he’s even the best rapper of all time, or at least the rapper of a generation.

Drake’s first love was not his music career, though. Drake actually got his start in acting.

I’ve been following Drake’s career for many years – at least since he was a child actor in the show “Degrassi: The Next Generation”. As such, I’ve always been a big fan of Drake.


Drake’s Acting Career

Drake began acting in 2001. According to Insider, Drake “was cast as Jimmy Brooks, a popular eighth grader, basketball star, and eventual paraplegic in the original cast of “Degrassi: The Next Generation.””

I remember watching this show as a kid. It was a pretty intense, dramatic show, all about the things that teenage kids might face while in school.

Things like teen pregnancy, drugs, gang violence, mental health issues, and much, much more.


Drake Takes His Music Career Full-time

In 2008, Drake quit acting to pursue his music dreams. According to Insider, he released his third mixtape under his own self-created music label called October’s Very Own.

It was at this point that he told Heeb magazine in an interview that he was about to get a second job to pay the bills. He explained that “the money from that show [Degrassi] was very small. And it was dwindling.”

Apparently, good things come to those who wait – and work hard. The success of his mixtapes eventually got him attention from major music labels. 

In 2009, Lil Wayne signed Drake to his music label, Young Money, and offered him a $2 million advance in the process.

Over time, Drake has seen massive success with his music career. He has produced various albums, all with varying levels of success, and has worked with the biggest names in the music industry. 

Drake dropped his first studio album, “Thank Me Later” in 2010. According to Insider, this album sold 447,000 copies in its first week.

He has worked (and has previously been romantically linked to) Rihanna, and has also worked with some of the most successful rappers like Eminem, Future, and Nicki Minaj.

In 2017, Drake was rumored and later confirmed to have had a son with actress Sophie Brussaux. It was reported that Drake’s son was born on Drake’s birthday (October 24). Drake’s son was named Adonis Graham.


Drake’s Career Now

Drake has become an icon in the music industry and beyond.

Drake is well-known for being a very honest person and for being very vulnerable in his music.
