DRAKE
Aubrey Drake Graham was born on October 24, 1986, in Toronto, Ontario. His father, Dennis Graham, is an African American and a practicing Catholic from Memphis, Tennessee, and worked as a drummer, performing alongside country musician Jerry Lee Lewis. Bass guitarist Larry Graham and the late songwriter Teenie Hodges are his paternal uncles.[24][25][26][27][28] Drake's mother, Sandi Graham (née Sher), is a white Jewish Canadian who worked as an English teacher and florist. Drake attended a Jewish day school, and had a Bar Mitzvah ceremony.[29][30][31] Drake's parents divorced when he was five years old. After the divorce, he and his mother remained in Toronto, while his father chose to return to Memphis in order to find a way to supplement himself financially.[29][30][31] As a child, he witnessed his father's arrest while visiting him in Memphis.[32][33] His father later collaborated with Canadian music group Arkells for a song entitled "Drake's Dad", detailing the events that had occurred following his departure from Drake's early life.[34] Drake was raised in two polarizing Toronto neighbourhoods; he lived on Weston Road in the city's working-class west end,[32] until the sixth grade. In his youth, he played minor hockey with the Weston Red Wings.[35] Drake then moved to one of the city's affluent neighbourhoods, Forest Hill, in 2000.[36][37] When asked about the move to Forest Hill, Drake replied, "[We had] a half of a house we could live in. The other people had the top half, we had the bottom half. I lived in the basement, my mom lived on the first floor. It was not big, it was not luxurious. It was what we could afford." He attended Forest Hill Collegiate Institute, where he demonstrated an affinity for the arts, first acting while an active student at the school.[38] He later attended Vaughan Road Academy in the city's multicultural Oakwood–Vaughan neighbourhood. Due to the economic status associated with the neighbourhood, Drake described the school as "not by any means the easiest school to go to. [It's tough]."[32] Drake was often bullied in school for his racial and religious background,[39] and upon realizing that his busy class schedule was detrimental to his burgeoning acting career, Drake dropped out of school.[40] He later graduated in October 2012 his second effort in fall 2010,[76] Drake announced his intentions to allow for Noah "40" Shebib to handle most of the production and record a more cohesive sound than on Thank Me Later, which featured disparate production duties by Shebib and others.[77] In November 2010, Drake revealed the title of his next studio album will be Take Care.[78] In comparison to his debut album, Drake revealed to Y.C Radio 1 that Thank Me Later was a rushed album, stating, "I didn’t get to take the time that I wanted to on that record. I rushed a lot of the songs and sonically I didn’t get to sit with the record and say, 'I should change this verse.' Once it was done, it was done. That’s why my new album is called Take Care, because I get to take my time this go-round."[79] Drake sought to expand on the low-tempo, sensuous, and dark sonic aesthetic of Thank Me Later.[80][81] Primarily a hip hop album, Drake attempted to incorporate R&B and pop to create a languid, grandiose sound.[82] Drake performing alongside Bun B in 2011. In January 2011, Drake was in negotiations to join Eva Green and Susan Sarandon as a member of the cast in Nicholas Jarecki's Arbitrage,[83] before ultimately deciding against starring in the movie, to focus on the album. "Dreams Money Can Buy"[84] and "Marvins Room"[80] were released on Drake's October's Very Own Blog, on May 20 and June 9, respectively. Acting as promotional singles for Take Care, the former was eventually unincluded on the album's final track listing, while "Marvins Room" gained Gold certification by the RIAA, as well as peaking at number 21 on the Billboard Hot 100,[86] and reaching the top 10 of the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart, coupled with extensive play on contemporary urban radio.[88] Drake would soon release the song's music video on June 28.
