Rapper Drake Graduates From High School at Age 25
Drake Takes Time to Earn High School Diploma
Looks like all that time Drake spent playing a high school student on Degrassi: The Next Generation paid off -- the 25 year-old rapper just got his high school diploma.
Drizzy, 25, took to Twitter to share the news that he graduated high school, writing, "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."
It's not exactly like Drake needed the high school diploma -- he's been doing pretty well for himself without it -- but you have to give him credit for seeing his education through.
He had plenty of love for his teacher too, tweeting: "Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND."
Drake's song Crew Love touches on his lack of education (but being no worse for the wear because of it), as he raps: "I guess we'll never know what Harvard gets us/ But seeing my family have it all/ Took the place of that desire for diplomas on the wall."
Drake started his Degrassi gig at age 15, playing Jimmy Brooks for seven seasons through 2009, when his character graduated.
