Drake needs little introduction - despite only breaking through in 2009, he’s since become one of the most successful, beloved and divisive artists in the game (Kanye West recently described him as a "Rap God".) At this point, he's sold more than 5 million records internationally, holds multiple Billboard records and has earned a GRAMMY, six BET awards and three Junos. He's also the second artist to have his first two top ten hits in the same week, those being "Best I Ever Had" and "Every Girl", and his recent single "Hold On, We're Going Home" has already been certified twice platinum.
During his brief four-year career (working professionally, that is), he's already collaborated with the likes of Beyonce, Jay Z, Future, 2 Chainz, Lil Wayne, Migos, Rick Ross, Game, Nicki Minaj, Nas, Young Jeezy, J. Cole, Lenny Kravitz, Bun B, Sampha, Justin Timberlake, Jhene Aiko, Andre 3000, The Weeknd, Alicia Keys and more.
Most recently, he designed special edition Jerseys for the Toronto Raptors and signed a deal with Jordan sneakers, introducing elements of his own October’s Very Own brand / label in both ventures. He also announced a philanthropic project that being the building of a recording school in an inner-city Philadelphia high school.
