Drake Is Still Getting ‘Degrassi’ Money
Between platinum albums and his own line of whiskey, Drake isn’t hurting for money, but that doesn’t mean that Drizzy won’t take what ever check is thrown his way.
On Tuesday, Drake went on Instagram to post a photo of a check he was sent on March 31. According to the rapper, the check, which was worth $8.25, was a royalty check for his time on the teen-drama Degrassi.
“Degrassi money still coming in don’t sleeeeeeeep,” he wrote on Instagram.
While Drizzy is one of hip-hop’s biggest stars now, when he was still a teenager, the rapper got his first big break on the Canadian TV series, Degrassi. On the show, Drake played Jimmy Brooks, a former basketball star-turned rapper. Drake portrayed the character for eight seasons before leaving the show to pursue music.
