Drake Leaves Degrassi Behind
Drizzy cannot believe people take him seriously as a rapper ...
Drake has spoken about how he overcame being known just as the friendly character Jimmy Brooks on TV programme, Degrassi.
The Young Money rapper can’t believe that people have looked past his time as an actor and now respect him as a proper rapper.
He told Q Magazine: "I watch clips of myself on Degrassi and I'm like, ‘I can't believe people look at this guy and hold me as one of the most respected rappers out there!’
"But being Canadian and an actor aren't things to overcome any more - they add to my story, I definitely see the Will Smith comparisons, except that my hip-hop is different from his. When the stars align, anything is possible."
