Rapper Drake Earns High School Diploma

(AllHipHop News) Drake has accomplished a number of milestones since launching his career as a Hip-Hop artist in 2006.

The rapper, who had sold millions and smashed Billboard chart records, completed his high school education yesterday (October 17).

“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!” Drake tweeted.

Drake has said in previous interviews that he dropped out of high school against his mother’s wishes, in part to support her during her illness.

It was then, that Drake begin acting at the age of 15 in the television series “Degrassi,” in which Drake played a paralyzed character named Jimmy.

Tonight, Drake is slated to play at Tyra Banks’ “Flawsome Ball” to benefit the Lower Eastside Girls Club in New York City.

      • Weedras

        Firstly you dumb ass, this is a forum where you debate opinions and what not not a fight club dumb ass… so i don’t why you think anyone’s hiding behind a screen name…. the reason why i alluded to my location is because your dumbass self assumed i was in some small town… 2ndly when did being West Indian or being West Indian-American or even straight American make it cool to disrespect a nationality and a culture just because? and you talk about respect yet you’re disrespecting a nationality and culture then your ignorant jackass of a self has the nerve to talk about civil rights when MLK preached tolerance when it’s obvious your prejudiced against Jewish people… you’re a hilarious dunce who can read but lack comprehension… and by the way my family has been rooted in America for over 52 years i know my history bitch!plus i know my culture and the cultures of others and i tolerate and respect; and judge individually and not generally pussyhole! it’s also obvious as a alleged Jamaican you have little knowledge of your history, a tree without roots as Garvey would see you… remember Jamaica’s motto is Out of Many ONE People.. meaning Black, white, chinese, Syrian, Jews, etc… as i said your an asshole, now i see your a Dunce with a computer who thinks he’s an intellect and can school people.. GTFOH… lol! hilarious. the nerve of this dunce..

      • Pierre Elliott

        LOSER. DONT YOU UNDERSTAND YOU COON, THAT THE TIME FOR TALK IS OVER??!! ONLY DUMMIES AND SIMPLETONS ARE STILL TRYING TO TALK….. WOW YOU SIT THERE AND TRY TO SPOUT SOME HISTORY…… AND IF YOU KNEW GARVEY AND HIS TEACHINGS, THEN YOU WOULD KNOW….

        GARVEY WAS ABOUT THE EDUCATION OF HIS PEOPLE AND EMPOWERMENT OF HIS PEOPLE.

        BY ATTACKING AND DESTROYING NEGATIVE IMAGES OF BLACKS
        BLACKS IN AMERICA AND ABROAD BECOME MORE INVESTED IN YOUR COMMUNITY AND BUSINESSES.

        DONT EVEN GET ME START ON AFRICAN HISTORY.

        THE FACT IS THIS: YOU CAN KEEP TALKING.
        AND THEY WILL KEEP IGNORING YOU.
        AND EVERYTHING THING YOU SAY IS FROM A PERSONS POINT OF VIEW THAT IS NOT ORIGINALLY BASED IN PATRIOTISM.

        SO YEAH YOURE GONNA TRY TO GET ME TO CHANGE MY WAY OF THINKING….

        BUT LIKE MY JEWISH FRIENDS WHO TELL ME ABOUT THIER OWN FUCKED UP PEOPLE……

        THEY DONT UNDERSTAND WHY JEWS THINK THE WEAY THEY DO, BUT THIS WAS ABOUT DRAKES BITCHASS…

        SO IF YOU OK DRAKE, THEN YOURE A BITCHASS.
        CAUSE IF YOU ARE AS SMART AS YOU CLAIM, THEN YOU WOULD HAVE SOME DEPTH OF WHAT YOURE TALKING ABOUT, BUT YOU DONT…

        YOU JUST HAVE MORE TALKING POINTS, AND MORE RHETORIC.

        IM NOT SHITTING ON JEWS IN GENERAL.

        IM SHITTING ON THE JEWS AND BLACKS WHO THINK ITS OK TO RAPE A CULTURE, AND NOT GIVE IT RESPECT.

        AND OF COURSE, LOOK AT THE VERY NEXT COMMENT UNDER ME BY JOSH…..

        YOU COULD NEVER WIN A POLITICAL OR SOCIAL DEBATE WITH ME
        ITS NOT POSSIBLE….

        AND THE THING IS: I HAVENT EVEN REALLY GONE IN..

        GO READ SOME BOOKS, GET A NEW HAIRSTYLE THEN CHECK YOURSELF INTO BELLVUE..

      • Pierre Elliott

        THERE IS NO COMPETITION.

        NOW TAKE YOUR DUSTY ASS TO GOLDEN CRUST.

  • Lyve Wire

    IF ANYONE IS SMART, THEY GET THE DIPLOMA AND DONT LET THEMSELVES SLIP UP.
    I WOULDNT BE MAKING THIS NEWS, IT JUST SHOWS HOW DUMB AND IGNORANT DRAKE IS, AND THE PEOPLE WHO LISTEN TO HIS MUSIC.

    CAUSE ITS MUSIC FOR CLOSE MINDED PEOPLE, AND INSECURE PUSSIES
