The performer / entertainer / singer Drake is actually known only by his real middle name. Born on October 24th, 1986, as Aubrey Drake Graham and raised mainly in Canada (Toronto to be exact) by his mom, yet he traveled to and from Memphis to spend the summer months with his dad.
At about 9 or 10 years old, Drake found himself writing songs, lyrics and music in his spare time, but it soon turned into a passion for him. Drake actually earned a small role on a Canadian TV show for teenagers. As he got older, he earned roles in other TV series. As he grew in popularity as an actor, he figured it was time for him to give it a shot in the music industry, which is really what he always wanted.
His first musical release ever was an indie mix-tape which he called 'Room for Improvement' and Drake went on from there to be bigger than he could ever have guessed.... ...full drake biography
