To us Canadians, we all know Aubrey “Drake” Graham who played the sweet and caring Jimmy Brooks on the TV show Degrassi: The Next Generation. But now everyone is beginning to stand up and take notice of Canadian rapper Drake. He recently did an interview with Complex Magazine about his latest mixtape, So Far Gone. After reading the interview that he did with Complex, I thought to myself, this is someone who obviously knows how to handle his new found fame.

Since exploding on the scene with the track, “Replacement Girl” alongside Trey Songz in 2006 and now working with everyone from Bun B, Lloyd, Omarion and Lil Wayne, Drake just seems to take it all in stride.

In the interview with Complex, Drake talks about growing up with music in his family with his uncle being a bass player for Prince and his father writing songs for Al Green. How he started to realize he wanted to be involved in music. Being from Toronto and looking up to fellow rapper K-OS. How he gets noticed by Lil Wayne and do a track together and more. Drake keeps it real y’all! Check out the full interview with Complex Magazine here.
