Canadian rapper, singer and actor, Aubrey Drake Graham, began his showbiz career in his his native Toronto in 2001, playing basketball star Jimmy Brooks in TV series Degrassi: The Next Generation, where he was a fixture for eight years, before his character 'graduated' and left the show. During his stint on Degrassi..., Drake began making music and released a sample tape called Room For Improvement, which he uploaded to his MySpace page in 2006, followed by another, Comeback Season, in 2007, which produced the single “Replacement Girl” and an accompanying music video, which featured heavily on certain channels – unusual for an unsigned act. This exposure brought him to the attention of Lil Wayne, who invited him to Houston to record some demos with him, including what would become “I Want This Forever” and “Ransom”, and Drake also became a member of Wayne's outfit, Young Money, but remained without a record contract of his own.
In 2009, Drake released a third tape of demos, So Far Gone, on his website, which featured Wayne and others including Omarion, Bun B and longtime friend, Trey Songz. The tape was so successful, it made it to the radio, and was released as a proper EP later that year, and also led to Drake being able to collaborate with artists like Jamie Foxx, Eminem and Timbaland. He released two singles, “Best I Ever Had” and “Every Girl”, which both went into the Billboard Top 10 in the same week, just days after Drake signed his first record deal, with Young Money Entertainment. His official debut album, Thank Me Later, didn't come out until a year later, and featured Kanye West and Jay-Z, the lead single, “Over”, reaching No.14 in the US charts. The follow-up, “Find Your Love”, did even better and made it to No.5. On the day of the album's release, a planned free concert by Drake and Hanson had to be cancelled after so many people showed up to the venue at South Street Seaport in New York, that police couldn't handle it. Also in 2010, Drake began his first headlining tour, which ended in Las Vegas in November. His next album, Take Care, came out in 2011, and featured the hits “Marvin's Room”, “Headlines” and “The Motto”. As well as producing his own music, Drake also writes for acts such as Alicia Keys, Jamie Foxx and Mary J Blige.
In 2012, Drake will continue touring to promote Take Care.
