Aubrey Drake Graham (born October 24, 1986), who records under the mononym Drake, is a Canadian recording artist, rapper, songwriter, and actor. He was born in Toronto, Ontario, and became known for playing Jimmy Brooks on the television series Degrassi: The Next Generation. He later rose to prominence as a rapper, releasing several mixtapes before signing to Young Money Entertainment.
Drake has sold over 5 million albums worldwide. His work has earned him three Juno Awards, three BET Awards, and holds several significant Billboard records. With twelve number-one singles, Drake has more than any other artist on Billboard’s Rap Songs chart. With ten number-one singles he also has more than any other rapper on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, passing Jay-Z in August 2012. He is one of two artists (the other being 50 Cent) that has simultaneously occupied the chart’s top three positions.
In 2007 Comeback Season, spawned a single and a music video for “Replacement Girl” featuring Trey Songz that was executive produced by Terral “T.Slack” Slack Of BPE. Also in 2007, Graham became the first unsigned Canadian rapper to have his music video featured on BET when his first single, “Replacement Girl” was featured as the “New Joint of the Day” on April 30, 2007.
Comeback Season also contained a freestyle over a song with Lil Wayne, a remix of “Man of the Year” originally by Brisco and Flo Rida. In 2008, Lil Wayne was given some of Drake‘s music from Rap-A-Lot founder, J. Prince‘s son, Jas Prince, and he immediately called Drake to invite him to fly to Houston and tour with him. Drake and Wayne recorded a couple of songs during this time, including “Ransom“, the original version of “I Want This Forever“, and the remix to Drake’s song, “Brand New“. Though now part of Lil Wayne‘s crew, Young Money, Drake was not signed.
On February 13, 2009, Drake released his third official mixtape, So Far Gone, for free download on his blog site which included Drake‘s mentor Lil Wayne, Bun B, Omarion, Lloyd and his friend, Trey Songz. It received over 2,000 downloads in the first 2 hours of release. It was extremely successful in the underground and eventually made its way to radio. Due to the success of the mixtape’s two singles, “Best I Ever Had” and “Successful“, it was released as an EP featuring only five songs from the mix tape and one new song. MTV named it “The Hottest Mixtape of 2009“.
Since So Far Gone, Drake worked with Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Young Money, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Eminem, Young Jeezy, Mary J. Blige, Timbaland, Birdman, Trey Songz, and Jamie Foxx. Drake has also written for Alicia Keys, and Dr. Dre. So Far Gone is credited as being his commercial and critical breakthrough as it was much more critically acclaimed and commercially successful than his previous two releases.
Drake has a unique musical style that has set him apart from his (Young Money) counterparts, especially on his latest effort Take Care. Lil Wayne even commented on the project prior to its release saying “I can tell, you know, I don’t know nothing else out there that can touch it, including my stuff. That kid is on another planet.” Recently, Drake has been making a notable shift away from Young Money/Cash Money collaborations and towards a new project, OVOXO. The OVO owl symbolizes OVOXO, which is a separate entity from Young Money/Cash Money and represents a collaboration group between Drake and R&B singer The Weeknd. Its eyes and beak form the acronym for October’s Very Own. Drake has been moving in this new direction after the release of Take Care, which featured writing collaborations with The Weeknd on 5 tracks ranging from “Crew Love” to “Shot for Me” and 2 production collaborations on “Crew Love” and “The Ride“, more than any Young Money/Cash Money collaborate.
