Drake posingRapper, Drake has decided to follow in fellow Canadian, Justin Biebers footsteps and finish out his high school diploma. While despite what people are saying it is hardly a YOLO moment, it is a big deal. Drake now 25, has stated that he only has 1 credit left and is excited to say that he should be a high school graduate by the end of the summer. 

Drake got his start on the Teen Nick television show Degrassi: The Next Generation during what would have been his high school years. Degrassi: The Next Generation followed a group of students at Degrassi Community School who faced various challenges, such as poor self-esteem, peer pressure, child abuse, sexual identity, gang violence, self-injury, teenage pregnancy, drug abuse, death, and a number of other issues.

Drake played Jimmy Brooks for 7 seasons, the character is described by Wikipedia as follows “He comes from a wealthy family, and is often seen with expensive clothes and gear. He dates Ashley until she takes ecstasy and cheats on him at a party. After Spinner and Jay trick Rick into thinking that Jimmy pulled a prank on him, Rick shoots him in the back, which causes him to use a wheelchair throughout the rest of the series.

He graduates Degrassi in season 7, a year later than planned because of the time he had to take off due to the shooting, and therapy.He starts to pursue a career in music that blossoms when he rekindles his relationship with Ashley, but they ultimately break up when her musical talent is ignored by a friend of Ellie’s, who takes interest into Jimmy’s talent. He starts dating Trina in season 7, who is another physically challenged individual. He is briefly seen being there for Spinner after he doesn’t make it into a police academy. He also reveals that he is contemplating proposing to Trina, showing Spinner a sign that he needs to move on with his life.”

Once he left Degrassi, made his first mix tape in 2006 and then 4 years later in 2010 released his first album. The rest is pretty much history as far as his music career goes, the rapper simply just did not have the time to go back to school. It is not easy to go back and finish school so kudos to you Drake for taking the initiative.
