Like most rappers, Drake began his career by releasing mixtapes. It was his third release, So Far Gone, that included the catchy track Best I Ever Had, which helped the Toronto native snag his first radio hit. But before he made it big as a rapper, Drake was honing his time in front of the cameras by starring on the Canadian TV show Degrassi: The Next Generation. Once he signed to Lil Wayne’s Young Money camp, Drake became a household name, and now has three platinum albums under his belt. Earlier this year Drake played double duty as host and musical guest on SNL and showed off his acting skills and amazing comedic timing.
