I’m no fan of Aubrey Graham, the man known to the world as the rapper Drake, but I must say I am impressed with his latest accomplishment. The YMCMB front man just became a high school graduate.
I’m sure someone somewhere is rolling their eyes thinking what’s the big deal, after all the man is 25. But let’s be real, how many people in the music industry, particularly on his level, are thinking about obtaining a high school diploma when they have already amassed enormous wealth and status? Lawd knows ya’ll shade the mess out of Beyonce for her lack of education so I say congratulations are definitely in order for Mr. Drizzy.
Last night, the rapper/actor/low-key wanna-be R&B singer tweeted the good news, saying:
If you’re wondering why this is just now happening, Drake dropped out of school when he got a role on the Canadian TV show “Degrassi: The Next Generation” at 15. He was on the show until 2009, and we all know what happened after that when Weezy F got a hold of him.
It sounds like Drake didn’t take an easy way out to graduate either, shouting out one of his teachers who he credits for his accomplishment:
“Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND”
Go head, Aubrey! C/O 2012
