Drake graduates high school

Drake took to Twitter on Wednesday night to announce that he has finally graduated high school. The rapper dropped out of school to take a role in Degrassi: The Next Generation and then went on to forge a successful music career. He spent the last five months quietly working to get his diploma. Drake joined Degrassi at age 15 and played paralyzed basketball player “James ‘Jimmy’ Brooks” for seven seasons, appearing in 138 episodes through 2009, when his character graduated from high school.

Drake’s latest album, Take Care, has sold over 1.8- million copies since its release almost one year ago.
