Drake Graduates High School

Can we hear a whoop whoop for Drake? He officially graduated high school this week, proudly announcing on Twitter, “97% on my final exam. 88% in the course. One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!” He’s also giving props to the people who helped him get to this place, tweeting, “Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND.” Drizzy had to quit his school —  Toronto’s Forest Hill Collegiate Institute — as he had to film Degrassi whilst he was still a teenager. His life had a lot of financial difficulties as well, as he revealed to Complex Magazine last year, saying, “My mother was very sick. We were very poor, like broke. The only money I had coming in was off of Canadian TV, which isn’t that much money when you break it down. A season of Canadian television is under a teacher’s salary, I’ll tell you that much. It’s definitely not something to go f— get.” It’s amazing that he stuck to his guns and wanted to get that diploma so many years later. This is really big news and we’re sending a huge congratulations to Drake!
