He started his career as an actor in Canadian TV series:
Before becoming a singer, in 2010, he started his career as an actor when one of his friend’s father offered him a role in the Tv series Degrassi: The Next Generation. He was Jimmy Brooks in that series, A former basketball player. This series had 145 episodes.
Apart from this series, he has done several more series like Soul Food, Being Erica, and Sophie and made a guest appearance on Saturday Night Live. Not just acting, he also did a voice-over for Ice Age: Continental Drift.
As it has been mentioned in the table, Drake was born to Dennis Graham and 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.
He has the most impressive music career in the entire music industry:
After getting recognition after his acting career, he decided it was time to follow his music passion and released his first mixtape, Room for Improvement. His first mixtape sold 6000 copies. Then released another mixtape the very next year called Comeback Season. Drake’s first solo hit song, which brought him international recognition and fame for the first time, was Replacement Girl. This song was also featured in BET’s hit hip-hop Tv show 106 and Park.
In 2009, he released his third mixtape featuring Lil Wayne, Lloyd, Trey Songz, and others. The mixtape includes songs Successful and Best I Ever Had, which were big commercial successes. Later he released his debut EP, which ranked no six on Billboard 200. In 2010 Drake’s music career reached heights; he opened a studio and made a music album named Thank me later with artists like Nicki Minaj, Lil Wayne, and iconic Kanye West. Among its songs, “Find your love” made it to the top 10 in Billboard top 100. The album was a massive success that it was no one on the album chart in America and Canada.
In 2011, he released another album, Take Care, with many successful songs like Take Care and Make me Proud featuring Nicki Minaj and Rihanna. For this album, Drake received the highest musical award Grammy for best album. Drake kept producing and releasing albums; almost every album became a hit and commercially successful.
In 2016, he released the album “Views”, which contains his all-time biggest song “, Hotline Bling”, for which he won Grammy again, and other singles like “Pop Style” featuring Jay Z and Kanye West, “Too Good” featuring Rihanna.
He has been known to have exciting love life:
Although the singer has been reported or rumored to be in a relationship with many personalities from the industry, the most prominent was Rihanna; Rihanna herself is one of the most famous singers in the American music industry. They first met in 2005; then, Drake had already had a crush on her. They came close and started dating; however, the relationship ended when Rihanna decided to have a relationship with Chris Brown.
In late 2016, he started with another famous singer Jennifer Lopez; they made their relationship official by posting pictures online. However, they eventually broke up because things were not working out.
Although he is not married, he shares a son named Adonis Graham with artist Sophie Brussaux.

He has made a good amount of fortune:
Drake is a very successful artist of this era, financially and critically. His albums are enormous hits and commercially profitable. And Drake’s net worth is estimated to be around more than $250 million. He owns a luxury house, cars, and belongings.
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 from 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’s 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.”
