Starting his career as an actor in the TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation, Drake turned to music to become one of the most prominent rappers of his generation.
Drake’s childhood was not as glamorous as we’d like to think. His parents got divorced when he was only five and his father was arrested for drug related-charges. Moreover, he used to be bullied for being black and also Jewish. But Drake’s perspective has changed a lot since then. What used to make him feel different seems like a pretty cool thing today.
After signing a contract with Lil Wayne’s label Young Money Entertainment, Drake released his debut studio album “Thank Me Later,” which proved to be a great success, arriving at #1 on the US’ Billboard 200 chart.
Ever since his breakout, Drake continued to grow as an artist and dominate charts along the way. His fifth album, Scorpion, made him the first artist to top one billion streams in one week.
