Drake is a singer, a songwriter, a Grammy Award-winning artist, a platinum-selling artist salesman and the face of a light-skinned nation. Drake was born Aubrey ‘Drake’ Graham on October 24, 1986, from Sandi and Dennis Graham. He derives his African-American genes from his father, a native of Memphis, Tennessee, and he owes his Canadian Jewish descent to his mother. On a lighter note, we know that Drake’s height cannot be attributed to his mother.
Drake’s interest in entertainment and shows has not started in recent days; it started very early. He was first recognized for his role in the popular TV series ‘Degrassi: The Next Generation‘ which he left in 2007 to pursue and focus on his rap career. After a few mix-tapes, he went on tour with rapper Lil Wayne in 2008 and was signed on his Young Money Entertainment label in June 2008, Drake was on roll and since then he remains just as relevant.
Drake has come a long way since then, as he now holds the record for the most hits on Billboard’s R&B/Hip-Hop Chart. He also created a brand, October’s Very Own (OVO), with subsidiaries such as OVOSOUND and OVOFEST. Drake is the proud owner of a clothing line and his own channel on ‘Beats 1’, he is currently an ambassador for ‘The Toronto Rapters’. Drake’s net worth is currently estimated at $55 million.
Before getting to the point, here is a brief description of the phenomenal rapper, Drake has a medium build, athletic figure and fair skin due to his mixed ethnicity, with dark brown eyes and hair. He often grows his beard or leaves a shadow, but it has been a long time since we have seen a well-shaved Drake.
The god of height obviously smiled at him and he should be grateful to them, he is 1.83 m (6 feet) tall with personalities like Elvis Presley, the king of rock and roll, John Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States and Vin Diesel, the popular action movie actor.
Drake dodged a few “short” genes from his mother, Sandi, who is 4 feet 8 inches (1.42 m) tall, putting her in the same size category as the popular reality TV star Nicole Elizabeth Polizzi known as Snooki. Being small is not a sin, but we can all say that we are grateful for Drake’s height.
Adequate weight is very important for public figures like Drake. He may not have a polished and built environment but he has kept a silhouette that makes it even more attractive. He is no stranger to the gym and this is obvious as he weighs 69 kg, which is not at all out of the ordinary for a man of his age and height, he also looks at what he eats although it is not only for his weight but because Jewish culture has one or two food restrictions.
Drake’s Body Measurements
He has a certain aura of softness, which can be attributed to Drake’s height, build, weight and overall appearance. The fact that he is well defined but not “torn” has given it an advantage over the ladies and as a result, most of his songs appeal to the female audience.
Drake’s chest is one of his most precious assets and it is difficult not to notice it, especially with all the very distracting bare-chested pictures we see of him recently. Drake’s chest size is 41 inches and this must be one of the reasons why he is not ashamed to display it.
His physique is incredibly proportionate and with him, he commands a subtle but powerful aura, it’s almost confusing, but damn it, we love it! Drake’s biceps are 14 inches long and his waist is 30 inches. He gives the impression that it is almost effortless, but we know that it takes hard work and compromise.
It should not be difficult for Drake to find his shoes in almost any part of the world, his size is quite moderate and accessible. Just in case you’re wondering, Drake wears a shoe size 11 US, his Euro size is 41-42 and his UK size is 9.
In all his fame and glory, we can’t help but love Drake, he started at the bottom of the ladder and now he’s here, with his admirable portfolio and statistics.
