This list has a variety of paparazzi pics all the way to some of Drake’s coolest pictures. As well as some awkward ones sprinkled in for good measure. Let’s first take a look at Drake’s history from the time he was born to what made him rise to his current fame we see him at today.
Aubrey Drake Graham was born on October 24, 1986. He is most known as a rapper but he also is a successful songwriter, record producer, and entrepreneur. In the early 2000s he gained recognition for his acting in a Canadian television series that target a teenage audience. The show was called Degrassi: The Next Generation. However, in 2007 he departed the T.V series to peruse the music career as a rapper. The same year he left the show he went on to release his debut mixtape titled Room for Improvement. He then released an additional two independent projects called Comeback Season and So Far Gone. In June of 2009 Drake signed on to Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment record label. A year later in 2010 he released his debut studio album Thank Me Later. The debut album had great success charting number one on the US Billboard 200 and quickly rose to platinum status certified by the Recording Industry Association of America. He released two more albums in the following years after his first album. Both were met with critical and commercially successful. Continuing, Drake’s fourth album titled Views was released in 2016 and the album smashed several chart records. The album sat at the number one spot on the Billboard 200 for ten nonconsecutive weeks. Views is the first album by a male solo artist to be at the top of the charts for ten weeks in over ten years. The single “Once Dance” from the album topped the charts in several countries including the US, Canada, and the UK. And finally the album’s lead single “Hotline Bling” won him his second and third Grammy Awards. But if you follow Drake you know there is another thing that Drake is very passionate about outside of music. Basketball.
September 30, 2013, Drake was announced as the new “global ambassador” for the Toronto Raptors. Drake is greatly passionate about the sport of basketball and because of this role he became a part of the executive committee of the NBA franchise. He helped rebrand the Raptors by providing consulting services to help redesign its image and clothing line in celebration of the franchise’s twenty year anniversary.
