Dropped out of school to pursue acting career
The hitmaker dropped out of high school when he was just one credit short of graduating at the age of 15 to pursue a role on the Canadian teen drama series Degrassi: The Next Generation.
Drake recently ended his feud with Chris Brown after the pair were involved in a brawl at a New York nightclub on 14 June, which resulted in a number of people getting injured including professional basketball player Tony Parker.
A source close to Chris said: "That situation has already been handled and Chris [has] no beef with [Drake.] We don't think about [him.] Drake who? That club shit was what it was and Chris left that baggage back where it happened."
Drake is alleged to have started the fight after claims his entourage sent a note to Chris about his Rihanna, who split from Brown in February 2009 and following the altercation the pair were offered $1m to continue their feud in a boxing ring.
