Drake began his career as an actor on the Canadian television series spin-off Degrassi: The Next Generation. In truth, he had no intention of becoming a musician because of the popularity of his television job!4)

Didn't Like His Role

Drake clashed with Degrassi's screenwriters and producers, pleading with them to remove his character's wheelchair. He claimed that his rapper pals referred to him as “soft” as a result of this. Drake finally addressed a letter to the producers stating that he would not return for season six as Jimmy Brooks unless the character's injuries was repaired to the point where he no longer required a wheelchair.5)

Beginning Music Career

Soon after leaving acting, he received a call from Lil Wayne, owing to the mixtapes he delivered to Young Money Entertainment (which is owned by Lil Wayne). In fact, the artist was so taken with Drake's hit “Replacement Girl” that he flew Drake down to Houston to play on his Carter III tour.6)

Kanye West

Drake rose fast to stardom after releasing his debut studio album, Thank Me Later, not even two years after being found. This album topped the charts in both Canada and the United States.12)


For a few years, Rihanna and Drake dated, even releasing a couple of songs together (Take Care and “What's My Name”). The couple subsequently split up and went their own ways, with Rihanna seeing Chris Brown.13)

Marvin's Room

Drake has gotten himself into a lot of difficulty due of his song “Marvin's Room”. The song was apparently written by Drake's ex-girlfriend Erika Lee, although she was never given credit.14)

Grammy Beef

Drake won two prizes in 2017 for his smash single “Hotline Bling.” However, the singer went on to argue that the Grammys had humiliated him, accusing them of “shoehorning” him into a certain category. He thought he was only included in the rap category because of his color, despite the fact that “Hotline Bling” isn't even a rap song.15)
