Whether you love him or hate him, it would be difficult for anyone to deny that Aubrey Drake Graham is a force. He’s broken records previously held by The Beatles. He owns a Boeing 767 jet. He popularized the phrase “YOLO,” and he made Toronto a place that people now visit. According to DJ Akademiks, Drake has spent 509 out of 520 weeks in a decade having a song in the Top 10.
That’s some résumé.
Drake’s life story might be better than the stories they’re telling about him, but behind all of his success has been years of grinding, relentless energy and faith, an obsessive work ethic, a crew of dedicated and loyal friends and quite a few side hustles. While Drake might be instantly recognizable for relatable lyrics and countless hits, a majority of his wealth comes from other revenue streams.
You may know him as a 'Cris bottle sender and a check picker-upper, but Aubrey has done quite a few other jobs since he came on the scene.
