Aubrey Graham, better known as Drake, turns the big 3-0 today!
Days before his birthday the OVO rapper gifted all of us with four new tracks that he released Sunday afternoon, one of which is a Kid Cudi diss track.
Not only is he a rapper, but a singer, songwriter, record producer and actor. Although his rise to fame was as wheelchair Jimmy on Degrassi: The Next Generation in the early 2000s, he is now one of the best known rappers in the game.
His first studio album Thank Me Later brought him success in 2010, debuting at No. 1 on the U.S Billboard 200. His next two releases Take Care and Nothing Was The Same saw triple and quadruple platinum sales and earned him a Grammy for Best Rap Album.
Last year, his release of Views broke numerous records, sitting at the top of the Billboard 200 for 10 weeks. This made him the first solo male artist to reach this in over 10 years. As well as leading the Billboard Hot 100 continuously for eight weeks, breaking the record currently held by Michael Jackson and Whitney Houston.
It’s only right that we honor the OVO (October’s Very Own) king with a special tribute. Here are Drake’s a.k.a. @champagnepapi’s top 10 Instagram posts.
