Drake’s Early Life
Originally named Aubrey Drake Graham, the rapper was born on 24th October 1986. He had music in his genes since his father was a drummer who has worked with famous personalities like Jerry Lee Lewis. On the other hand, mother Sandra was a loving English teacher who was also a florist.
Drake was schooled at a Jewish day school. However, his parents got divorced when the rapper was only five.
His father was later in prison for many years after getting involved in drug charges. So, Drake grew up in Toronto with his mother but did occasionally pay a visit to his father who lived in Memphis. Though living in a two-story townhome in Forest Hill, Drake’s family did struggle with money issues.
After enrolling at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, Drake soon discovered his knack for singing and acting. He then went to Vaughan Road Academy but due to excessive bullying, he chose to quit. Later he completed his education in 2012.
Drake got his first acting gig through his father’s friend who was an agent. He supported Drake and found him a role in teen drama television, “Degrassi: The Next Generation”. It was a tough time for him since his mother was sick and he earned only $50,0000 per year.
But things started smoothing out, he started releasing mixtapes in 2005. “Room for Improvement” was first launched on his MySpace page which did pretty well. It sold over 6,000 copies and the next year, he released “Comeback Season”. He was smart enough to make the launches through his own label, October’s Very Own (OVO Records).
His first big hit was “Replacement Girl” and this video made him the first unsigned Canadian rapper who got the prestigious feature on BET. Lil Wayne was so impressed with it that Drake was invited for “The Carter III Tour.
His next mixtape, “So Far Gone” was big since it featured top artists like Lil Wayne, Trey Songz, Bun B, and also Lloyd. It became his first-ever Gold Certified release and topped at #2 on the Billboard Hot 100. He won the 2010 Juno Award for Rap Recording of the Year. Later in 2009, he agreed to a joint venture with Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment.
Drake’s mainstream success began with his June 15, 2010 debut studio album, “Thank Me Later”. It was in the #1 spot on the Billboard 100 in the US and Canada and under many categories. The album got Platinum certification from RIAA. It has been all uphill since then as his 2011 album “Take Care” got 6-times Platinum certification. And all other albums he has released did receive at least 4-times Platinum.
