Childhood: Drake was born in Toronto, Ontario. His parents are teacher Sandi Graham and drummer Dennis Graham - they divorced when he was a young child. His early education took place at a Jewish school during which he had his Bar Mitzvah. He enjoyed playing hockey for the Weston Red Wings and later attended Forest Hill Collegiate Institute where he first took an interest in acting. He was also educated at Vaughan Road Academy but dropped out - graduating some years later. He and his mother had little money while he was growing up and struggled to come to terms with seeing his father go to prison twice.
Career: Drake began his acting career at 15 with a role in Canadian TV show 'Degrassi: The Next Generation'. He then got into rapping with his first mixtape 'Room for Improvement' released in 2006, which featured Trey Songz and Lupe Fiasco. He released another the following year entitled 'Comeback Season' featuring single 'Replacement Girl'. In 2008, he was invited on tour by Lil Wayne during which time they recorded two songs together: 'Ransom' and 'I Want This Forever'. Drake achieved radio success with his third mixtape 'So Far Gone' which spawned his debut EP. Following that release, he worked with the likes of Rihanna, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Eminem, Mary J. Blige and Jamie Foxx among others. In 2009, he signed to Young Money Entertainment and subsequently went on tour with Lil Wayne and others on America's Most Wanted Tour. Drake's debut album, 'Thank Me Later', was released in 2010 and topped the charts at number one. The first single from the album was 'Over' which was subsequently nominated for a Grammy. He was praised for his venture into singing on Platinum certified second single 'Find Your Love'. He promoted the release with a free concert alongside Hanson in New York, an event which sparked a riot following overcrowding. That year he featured on the Young Artists for Haiti version of K'naan's 'Wavin' Flag'. He also hosted the first OVO (October's Very Own) Festival and embarked on his Lights Dreams and Nightmares Tour. His second album 'Take Care' was released in 2011 and featured lead single 'Headlines' which he performed on ice during the NHL All Star Game in Canada. His second single 'Make Me Proud' featured Nicki Minaj while third single 'The Motto' was a collaboration with Lil Wayne. The latter song famously made popular the phrase 'YOLO' (You Only Live Once). The album's title track featured Rihanna and became his biggest hit as an artist so far. In 2012, Drake formed the record label OVO Sound with Noah "40" Shebib. Drake featured on Rick Ross's single 'Diced Pineapples', 'Poetic Justice' by Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky's 'Fu**in' Problems'. In 2013, he won a Grammy award for Best Rap Album before releasing 'Started from the Bottom', the first single from his third album 'Nothing Was the Same'. He had his first appearance on 'Saturday Night Live' that year as a guest host and musical guest. Drake:
