It’s pretty clear Drake has been spending quality time in his home city of Toronto for the summer. If he’s not chilling out at Yorkville or preparing for the third annual OVO Festival (which also features the likes of A$AP Rocky, 2 Chainz and The Weeknd), he’s now trying to finish high school after dropping out at age 15.
“I’m actually spending my summer graduating high school,” he said in an interview with Now Toronto. “That’s my main focus after OVO Fest. I only have one credit left, and I’m really excited about that.”
Drake of course, was filming Degrassi: The Next Generation during his high school years. He has said in the past that he wants to one day show his mother his high school diploma.
Good on him! It’s nice to see to him realizing the importance of having an education. And seeing that he’s doing it to make his mom proud, that just warms my heart.
But on another note, the rapper was spotted this week getting a Freshly Squeezed at Scarborough Town Centre. Considering that most of my peers gathered at that same mall after school everyday, looks like Drake’s already fitting in with everyone!
