Drake is a Canadian rapper, producer and songwriter whose albums have won several awards and broken records. In 2016, he was the number one in music, breaking the record for most weeks at the top of the Billboard Artist 100 chart by a Male. To top it all off, he remained at the top of the list for 12 consecutive weeks.
The rapper is first recognized as an actor in the dramatic series Degrassi. After that he started to pursue his passion for rap in 2006, releasing his first mixtape Room for Improvement.
Since then, the rapper has solidified in the hip hop community, the rapper comes in fifth place in Forbes Five: Hip-hop’s Wealthiest Artists, with an estimated net worth of $60 million, knocking out 50 cents from his spot.
Drizzy Drake, as the rapper usually calls him, was born in Canada and was born into the family of Aubury Graham, a drummer, and Sandi Graham, an English teacher, and florist. The artist spent most of his youth with his mother after his parents’ divorce, an incident to which he refers in some of his songs.
As a highly commercialized artist, he has gained the support of industry leaders such as Jay-z, Kanye West, and Lil-Wayne. The artist has collaborated not only with some of the best rappers in the industry but also with renowned singers such as Rihanna, with whom he has also had relationships from time to time over the years.
The musician had a whole series of girlfriends. The rapper is stuck with various girls at different times and has never had a long-term girlfriend in the public eye. In 2015, the images revolved around the international rapper and sensationalist Serena Williams who, at that time, was winning a tournament.
He referenced her on his title “Worst Behavior” but the lady’s man is known to have referenced his loves on some of his titles. We also saw him cheering for Serena at her games. After that, the artist was linked with the young model Hailey Baldwin.
However, like most of his many romances, he was short-lived because he moved to another well-known star – Rihanna. Drake and Rihanna were friends, enemies, collaborators, friends again and then lovers, the world could see extracts of their love story through social media and tabloids.
They’re a couple that fans have wanted to see official for so long. First, they are one of the most elegant couples in the industry and second, both are at the top of their game when it comes to music. Their fans hoped they would be the young and trendy Beyonce and Jay-Z.
We could see their undeniable chemistry through their various collaborations such as “What’s My Name“, “Work“, “Take Care” and “Too Good” which have all been major successes. It is obvious that these two are a winning combination.
Rumour has it that he has always loved her and never stopped and that Rihanna didn’t want anything serious.
Well, things seem to be going very well between the duo, the two were seen a lot together at the MTV Video Music Awards 2016 where Drake declared to the world his love for Rihanna, saying “It’s someone I’ve been in love with her since I was 22”. Fingers crossed this time around this duet stick.
Dennis Graham is the rapper’s father and has often been mentioned in some of his songs like “0 to 100” and “Look What You’ve Done“. Dennis Graham is an American drummer, so we can see where Drake got his musical talent from.
After the end of their marriage (Drake’s mom and dad), Dennis left the family and returned to Memphis, where he was born. Dennis continued to make music, using his son’s fame to create his title “Drake’s Dad“. He also released an RnB title entitled “Kinda Crazy“.
There have been no confirmed rumors that Drake has a sister. However, there are some speculations that the rapper has a half-sister on his father’s side.
Not only does he sometimes mention his “sister” in some of his songs, but he sometimes publishes photos of a woman named Raemiah Julianna, referring to her as his sister.
Sandi Graham is a Canadian Jewish florist and English teacher, as well as Drake’s biological mother. After the divorce between her and Drake’s father, she went on to raise and was Drake’s sole breadwinner. The rapper and his mother have a close relationship and he often considers her his hero.
The artist is an artist to watch out for. The family-oriented man has won the hearts of millions of people in just a few years in the industry. He has definitely earned his place at the top thanks to his hard work and his fresh and authentic sound.
