Early Life

When Aubrey was five, his parents divorced. His father moved to Memphis, where he was jailed for several years on drug charges. Aubrey remained with his mother in Toronto, while he would visit his dad in Memphis every summer. Drake later explained that Dennis was absent. Dennis was obstinate and may have taken part in the sale of records.

When he was six, Drake lived in the lower half of a two-story townhome in Forest Hill. Drake’s family wasn’t rich, so they lived on the ground floor, and Drake lived in the basement.

While at Forest Hill Collegiate Academy, Drake found that he could combine his love of singing with acting. He experienced bullying due to his racial and religious background during his time at the Vaughan Road Academy. Eventually, he finished his project. He quit for a few years and then graduated in 2012.

Private Jet

In May 2019, Drake shared a video on Instagram of his newly acquired Boeing 767 private jet. He dubbed it “Air Drake.” He was relieved that he didn’t have to share the jet with other customers. It would have cost him $75 to $100 million.
