Drake is just one of those people you can’t seem to love or hate enough to really form an opinion of. Once you get to the point where you start seriously disliking his guts, he does something like the Hotline Bling video and your appreciation of him increases tenfold. It’s a gift, and he’s got more of it than he does musical talent.
Let’s take a look at some facts about Drake that you probably never wanted to know but will know in a few minutes nonetheless. Remember, knowledge is power.
His Full Name Is Aubrey Drake Graham
Aubrey seems like a weird name for him, don’t it?
Music Runs In His Family
His father was a drummer that worked with Jerry Lee Lewis and his uncle was a bass player for none other than Prince.
He’s Half Jewish, Half African-American
But it’s 2018 and we shouldn’t care about these things anymore. His “HYFR” video even recreated his Bar Mitzvah. Woops, that’s two facts for the price of one. Thank me later.
He’s a Miami Heat Fan
And he must be happy about that, because the Heat are currently 4th in their conference, only right behind the Cleveland Cavs!
He Has A Lot Of Celebrity Crushes
He has crushes on Nicki Minaj, who sees him more as a little brother, Rihanna, who he dated and loved since he was 22 years old, and even Kat Dennings.
His Favorite Music Group Is N.E.R.D.
That’s the thing Pharell Williams did before he was just Pharell Williams, for all you youngsters out there.
No Genetic Relationship With Dragons
Despite what his name implies, Drake is not a fire-breathing reptilian creature of ancient myths.
He’s No Fan Of Chris Brown
But who is, right? They both dated Rihanna in the past, so that might have something to do with it. Or it might not.
Drake Loves McDonald’s
This might literally be the only thing he has in common with the current president of the United States.
He Is Planning On Launching A Clothing Line
It’ll be called A&S so keep an eye out for that!
He Has A Pretty Neat Bank Account
His current net worth is about $35 million.
He’s a Decent Actor
His hosting debut on Saturday Night Live was universally praised and he’s also done some voice work as Ethan the young mammoth in Ice Age: Continental Drift.
His Idols Are Pharell Williams And Denzel Washington
I’ll be honest, these are two people I’d probably never associate with one another.
