Early Life 

Aubrey Drake Graham was born on October 24, 1986, in Toronto, Canada. His father was a drummer, and his mother was a teacher of English.

Drake attended a Jewish day school as a child and even had a formal Bar Mitzvah celebration. Drake’s parents eventually divorced, resulting in his father largely absent from his son’s life.

Drake and his mother lived in a small apartment in an affluent neighborhood until around sixth grade, where Drake’s mother struggled to make ends meet.

Drake attended Forest Hills Collegiate Institute during this time period, where he developed a strong passion for the arts.

While Drake excelled at both acting and singing, he became the target of bullying due to his bi-racial and religious upbringing. Drake suffered severe hardship due to this, and he eventually dropped out but returned to graduate in 2012.

Drake was able to secure a spot-on Canadian television at 15. He landed a starring role on “Degrassi: The Next Generation,” a Canadian teen drama.

Drake portrayed Jimmy Brooks in this series from seasons one to seven. Drake’s mother was gravely ill at the time. The only source of income for the two was Drake’s acting paychecks. This amounted to approximately $50,000 per year or $2000 per month after taxes. Drake describes this period as extremely difficult but extremely influential in his pursuit of greater success.
