He’s sold over 5million albums and his latest tour took more than $42million. But for rapper Drake none of that compares to his pride at graduating from high school.
The 25-year-old finally gained his diploma on Wednesday, ten years after leaving school at just 15 in search of stardom.
He tweeted to fans: ‘One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!’
And he did well, adding: ‘ ’97per cent on my final exam. 88per cent in the course.
The Best I Ever Had singer revealed that he had worked hard for the result.
‘Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND.’
At the age of 15 Drake prematurely ended his education when he won a role as a disabled former basketball star on the Canadian TV show Degrassi: The Next Generation.
In an early interview with Complex Music he described how he took the role to support his family.
‘My mother was very sick,’ he explained. ‘We were very poor, like broke.
‘The only money I had coming in was off of Canadian TV, which isn’t that much money when you break it down.
‘A season of Canadian television is under a teacher’s salary, I’ll tell you that much. It’s definitely not something to go f***ing get.’
