Drake net worth in 2021, as you’ve just read, is $170 million.
In this part, we will have a look at the life achievements of Drake – this includes family as well as love life and early career.
Drake is one of the most famous rappers and in terms of net worth, he is one of the very few rappers who made it to this figure.
You will get to know about the humble beginnings of this rapper – personal as well as professional.
As it has been mentioned in the table, Drake was born to a Dennis Graham and a Sandra “Sandi” Graham – in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
It isn’t much known about his parents except that his father was already into music and he’s the one Drake got music in his DNA.
He was a drummer who worked with a famous country music singer from the USA: Jerry Lee Lewis.
Dennis Graham started off back in 1962, but 2017’s “Kinda Crazy” can be called the biggest moment in his professional/music history.
Drake’s relationship with his father has been a complicated one. In 2019, his father accused him of using phony language about his father, in his songs.
In terms of ethnicity, Drake’s family is a true melting pot. His father is an African-American from Memphis, Tennessee, USA, and his mother is an Ashkenazi Jewish Canadian. She was a teacher in his youth and both, she and her husband are not separated.
Here’s a fun fact about Drake; he started off as an actor and NOT as a singer. Degrassi: The Next Generation was the Canadian drama that proved to be Drake’s debut in showbiz. He was only 15 when he got a break.
‘Room for Improvement’ is Drake’s debut mixtape and it was launched back in 2006. While his role in 100 episodes of the abovementioned helped him support his “very poor, like broke” family financially, this mixtape proved to be his first success in what was going to be known as his career forever.
In 2007, following the success of his first tape, Drake launched his second mixtape named: Comeback Season.
One of the songs “Replacement Girl” became the reason why Drake was featured on BET.
Drake has been known as a playboy.
He is not married to anyone, but from time to time, he has been known for dating many famous and unknown girls.
Let us take a look at that “rap sheet” of him.
The most famous girlfriend of Drake, other than Jennifer Lopez, is Sophie Brussaux (2017). She got famous because she gave birth to Drake’s only child: Adonis Graham. The kid has been Instagram-ified so that’s a known thing.
And the list is long.
He has been dating (from recent to old news):
- Bella Harris – a 19-year model (2018)
- Malaika Terry – another model (2018)
- Reka Nagy-Miticzky – an actor, extra and model (probably 2018)
- Lateysha Grace – a model and television personality (2018)
- Raye – a British singer (2018)
- India Love – US model and TV personality (2016)
- Hailey Baldwin – model (2016)
- Deelishis – US model and reality TV personality (2015)
- Sophia Marie – US model (2012)
- Serena Williams – US tennis player (2011 to 2015 probably)
- Rihanna – US singer and songwriter (2010), and
- Maliah Michel – US model (2010)
I have already said enough about Drake’s parents and what they have been doing in their life. There is nothing much to say. Drake is the only child that Dennis and Sandi ever had together – although on his father’s side he has a half-sister too.
Other than that, we have only Drake’s son that he had from a girlfriend. He is a two year+ kid (October 11, 2017).
In a song, he mentioned publicly how touchy he is about his son and how he was “hiding the world” from his kid.
Other than his early acting and mixtapes, Drake has a lot of career achievements to show off.
Let us start with his 2009 mixtape ‘So Far Gone’. Through OVO he made that free to download and within only the first 2 hours, there were a record 2,000 downloads. The tape won Gold certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
Then there were ‘Me Later’ and ‘Take Care’ that made him more famous and richer than before.
‘Nothing Was the Same’, ‘If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late’, ‘What a Time to Be Alive’, ‘More Life’, ‘Scorpion’, ‘Care Package’, ‘Dark Lane Demo Tapes’ and ‘Certified Love Boy’ all won a lot of fame and awards for him.
But I can not mention his handful of successful business ventures.
- OVO Sound – a record label company
- Virginia Black – premium-brand American bourbon whiskey
- DreamCrew – a production company
Other than his albums and his business ventures, the rap star has a special interest in cars and residential property.
He has a very lavish, luxurious, and large manor house in Toronto hometown. That is more like a palace than a house – and Drake wants it to last for 100 years.
Where Does the Money Go?
Other than his house with a “monumental scale and feel” he spends his money to maintain a luxurious, king-like lifestyle, traveling, and cars.
He owns a big number of very expensive cars including:
- Bugatti Veron
- Bentley Continental GTC V8
- Lamborghini Aventador Roadster
- Rolls Royce Phantom
- Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, and many others
So, there are some funny things about him that you need to know.
For example, Drake is his middle name; his complete name is Aubrey Drake Graham. He attended a Jewish school and he had a Bar Mitzvah. And in the very beginning of his career, he had to go through surgery because of an accident on stage.
My favorite quote from Drake is “Everybody has an addiction, mine happens to be a success.”
Drake is definitely intoxicated with success. He is not among them who start 10 different things and are known for being successful in only one or two of them. He is one of the few celebs who can truly claim that whatever they touch turns into gold.
