It seems like forever ago, but NEVER FORGET where Drake came from! He started from the bottom (Degrassi) and now he’s here- international SUPERSTARRRR!
Aubrey Drake Graham starred as Jimmy on Degrassi: The Next Generation. The hit Canadian teen drama aired from 2001 – 2015.
His Character, Jimmy Brooks, played a pivotal role on the show for six seasons, as a teen who was shot by a classmate, and paralyzed. He spent the majority of the show confined to a wheelchair.

Even back in his Degrassi days, Drake’s freestyle game was strong

The popular series still occasionally airs reruns on the small screen, resulting in mega royalty cheques for Drake. He posted a photo on Instagram showing off his impressive payout.
He’s obviously in no hurry to cash in his fortune, considering the cheque is dated for four months ago. Here’s hoping that when he finally does deposit it, he doesn’t spend it all in one place!!!
