Drake BiographyDrake biography
Aubrey Drake Graham was born on October 24, 1986, in Toronto, Ontario.
His father, Dennis Graham, is African-American and a practising Catholic from Memphis, Tennessee, who worked as a drummer, performing alongside country musician Jerry Lee Lewis.
His mother, Sandra “Sandi” Graham (née Sher), is a Canadian of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage who worked as an English teacher and florist.
Dennis Graham performed at Club Bluenote in Toronto, where he met Sandra Sher, who was in attendance.
Drake is a dual citizen of the United States and Canada, having American citizenship due to his American father.
In his youth, he attended a Jewish day school and became a bar mitzvah.
Drake's parents divorced when he was five years old. After the divorce, he and his mother remained in Toronto; his father returned to Memphis, where he was incarcerated for a number of years on drug-related charges.
Graham's limited finances and legal issues caused him to remain in the United States until Drake's early adulthood.
Prior to his arrest, however, Graham would travel to Toronto and bring Drake to Memphis every summer.
His father later collaborated with Canadian music group Arkells on the music video for a song titled “Drake's Dad”.
Graham claimed in an interview that Drake's assertions of him being an absent father were embellishments used to sell records, which Drake vehemently denies.
Drake was raised in two Toronto neighbourhoods. He lived on Weston Road in the city's working-class west end until grade six, playing minor hockey with the Weston Red Wings.
He then moved to one of the city's affluent neighbourhoods, Forest Hill, in 2000.
When asked about the move, Drake replied, “[We had] a half of a house we could live in. The other people had the top half, we had the bottom half. I lived in the basement, my mom lived on the first floor. It was not big, it was not luxurious. It was what we could afford.”
He attended Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, where he demonstrated an affinity for the arts, first acting while an active student at the school.
He later attended Vaughan Road Academy in the city's multicultural Oakwood–Vaughan neighbourhood.
Due to the economic status associated with the neighbourhood, Drake described the school as “not by any means the easiest school to go to.”
Drake was often bullied at school for his racial and religious background, and upon realizing that his busy class schedule was detrimental to his burgeoning acting career, Drake dropped out of school. He later graduated in October 2012.[
2001–2009: Career beginnings
Degrassi: The Next Generation
At the age of 15, Drake, eager to begin his career as an actor, was introduced to a high school friend's father, an acting agent.
The agent found Drake a role in the Canadian teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Drake portrayed Jimmy Brooks, a basketball star who became physically disabled after he was shot by a classmate.
Drake reportedly disliked this character arc because of its apparent tokenism (he was one of the only black characters in the series), and he also believed it could negatively influence his standing as a rapper.
Longtime series writer James Hurst said that Drake threatened legal action to redo the storyline, before ultimately agreeing to it.
Madeleine Robinson, the executive director of the Californian non-profit organization Wheelchair 4 Kids, praised the storyline and Drake's performance, noting “he instilled confidence and representation” to disabled youth.
When asked about his early acting career, Drake replied, “My mother was very sick.
We were very poor like broke. The only money I had coming in was [from] Canadian TV.”
He appeared in a total of 100 episodes between 2001 and 2008.
In 2010, Drake expressed interest in playing Barack Obama in a biopic, to which Obama responded with approval in an interview in 2020.
According to Degrassi series creators Stephen Stohn and Linda Schuyler, Drake regularly arrived late onset after spending nights recording music.
To prevent this, Schuyler claimed Drake struck an agreement with the set's security guards to gain entry to the set after recording to be allowed to sleep in a dressing room.
