October 24, 1986 was the date of Aubrey Drake Graham’s birth in Toronto, Ontario. Dennis Graham, who is African American and a practicing Catholic, was a drummer who performed alongside country musician Jerry Lee Lewis. Sandra “Sandi” Graham, Drake’s mother, was born in Canada and is a member of the Ashkenazi Jewish community. She worked as both an English teacher and florist.

Dennis and Sandra met after he appeared at Club Bluenote in Toronto, where he met Sandra for the first time. Drake attended a Jewish day school during his youth and attended a religious service to celebrate his Bar Mitzvah.

Drake’s affinity for acting and singing developed during his time at Forest Hill Collegiate Institute. During his time at Vaughan Road Academy, he faced bullying due to his bi-racial and religious background. Although he dropped out for a while, he ultimately graduated in 2012.

Personal Life

Drake and singer Rihanna had an intermittent relationship between 2009 and 2016. He has mentioned the relationship in every one of his studio albums, and when presenting Rihanna with the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award in 2016, he said “she’s a woman I’ve been in love with since I was 22 years old.” He mused on The Shop’s talk show while being a single parent.

As life takes shape and teaches you your own lessons, I end up in this situation where I don’t have the fairy tale, like, ‘Oh, Drake started a family with Rihanna and this is like so perfect.’ It looks so good on paper. That was also something I wanted at one point, by the way.


He left the series in 2007 after releasing his first mixtape, Room for Improvement, as he wanted to pursue a career in music. In June 2009, he joined Lil Wayne’s Young Money Entertainment after releasing two more independent projects, Comeback Season and So Far Gone.

The first Grammy Award for Best Rap Album was given to him when his next two releases, Take Care in 2011 and Nothing Was the Same in 2013, were both critically and commercially successful.

Hotline Bling, the lead single, became the second highest-charting song on the Hot 100 and won Grammy Awards for Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song. In 2017, he released the “playlist” More Life.

A year later, he released the double album Scorpion, which also broke several streaming records, and contains the Grammy Award winning number-one single “God’s Plan”, and the bounce-infused number one singles “Nice for What” and “In My Feelings”.

He was a part of the mega hit ‘Sicko Mode’, which topped the Billboard Hot 100 and was even nominated for two Grammy Awards. ‘God’s Plan’ was nominated for three Grammy Awards in 2019, and won the Best Rap Song award. This was Drake’s fourth Grammy win.

Unlike previous rap beefs, listeners can now hear the next installment without waiting months. Meanwhile, social media serves as a space for hip-hop fans to spread the word following each surprise release as well as to share information as to whether a release is legitimate or an imitation. Social media is a great place to discuss which rapper is the best, while also giving content creators platforms to become de facto authorities on the feud. The use of controversy by both artists as weapons alongside their lyricism illustrates a new era of rap beef.
